Have you ever tried cookie brittle???

Prepare to love me. No seriously, the recipe I'm about to share with you is not only ridiculously quick and easy it's also freaking DELICIOUS!

For real, people request me to make this on the regular.

I just had to make a few batches for a cookie exchange and Mr. B requested a few extra just for us him.

  1. line baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. pre-heat oven to 350.

finished product... YUM!!!

Why do we love these so much? Well Mr. B calls them "skor cookies" because that's what they kinda taste like. Soooooo good! 

My advice: if you're going to try this recipe, just go ahead and make two batches, you'll be glad you did!
