These toffee cookies with dark chocolate glaze are made with brown sugar and pecans and fleur de sel. An easy Christmas cookie or edible gift for any time of year.
If you’re someone for whom too much is never enough when it comes to indulgence, you need to try these toffee cookies with dark chocolate. Consider them a cookie incarnation of a turtle. But not in the way you may expect. The toffee-like quality of these buttery shortbread cookies comes from brown sugar in the ingredient list for toffee overtones. And then the resulting cookies are gilded with melted dark chocolate and chopped pecans. Good luck saving enough to gift to others who appreciate being a little overly enthusiastic for indulgence.

These cookies are great to have in your entertaining arsenal. They call for very few ingredients, but they really pack a flavorful punch. The preparation isn’t difficult and the end result is as elegant and, most importantly, as delicious as the author claims.
Make sure that the dough is well-chilled and that your surface is well-floured when you get ready to roll the dough out as it’s quite sticky. Also make sure that the top of the cookies are generously covered with pecans and fleur de sel so that the flavors really shine through—the salt really makes the flavors come alive. I had a few extra cookies left that were unglazed and they were tasty as well.
