Toffee Cashew Cookies

Do you like your cookies crunchy or chewy? For me it depends on the cookie. With these, I was looking for a good crunch. Have you ever tried Trader Joe’s caramel cashew cookies? These reminded me of those crunchy cookies.

However, if you love the crunch, you have to wait a day. On day one, these are chewy with a little bit of a crunchy exterior. Delicious!

But day 2, if you still have any left, OH EM GEE. Crunchy and perfect in coffee or milk, or straight up! Enjoy!
