Crackers is learning to cook!

Do you like to cook? I do, and Crackers is learning. We tried a new recipe last night and it was delicious! I bought some Heath toffee bits before Christmas but never used them, and my son has been threatening to eat them, so I had to find a recipe to put them in. Crackers and I found a nice little website called Shugary Sweets, and man, she has some good recipes! (And her pictures are so pretty, too.) Anyway, here is Aimee's recipe:

Chocolate Chip Toffee Fudge Cookie Bars
Ingredients (16 servings)
For the Crust:
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
For the Fudge Layer:
  • 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup Heath toffee bits
For the Cookie Layer:
  • 3/4 cup butter flavored Crisco
  • 2 TBS milk
  • 1 TBS vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 12 oz milk chocolate morsels
  • 1/2 cup Heath toffee bits
In small bowl mix melted butter with graham cracker crumbs. Press firmly into bottom of a parchment paper lined 13x9 baking pan. (If you don't have parchment, DON"T use wax paper. Take my word for it.)
In small saucepan, mix condensed milk with semi sweet morsels and butter. Heat over medium heat until smooth. Pour over crust. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup toffee bits.
In large mixing bowl, beat Crisco with brown sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth. Beat in egg. Add flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Fold in milk chocolate morsels. Spread over fudge layer. Sprinkle with remaining toffee bits.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30-35 minutes. Cookie dough may appear slightly under cooked. Allow to cool completely. Slice and enjoy!
And when she says it will look under cooked, it really does! Don't cook it any longer, though,
 because it turns hard when it cools if you cook it too long. We found this out. But it still tasted good.

It doesn't look as good as it tastes, nor as good as Aimee's photos, but it was YUMMY!
Go to Shugary Sweets and check out the rest of her recipes. And they're not ALL sweet, just most of them.
