It's the beginning of October and the start of Autumn/Halloween recipes! Halloween baking requires lots of effort and an amount of food coloring, enough to put permanent black & green stains on your teeth (I love it though). Fall baking, on the other hand, is so easy. You just need some simple ingredient, like toffee, walnuts or apples, and voilá! You get the most comforting and delicious treat. These chocolate chip cookies were crisp on the outside and delicate from the inside. The original recipe are actually toffee bars, which I've made once before as well but didn't put on this blog. Those were great as well, to view that recipe, click here. Rating: 4.5 out of 5.
