Bake this easy holiday cookie recipe! Toffee Squares have to be my all time favorites. They were a standard at my house, with Mom cutting off the edges for us to "sample". This recipe is super simple, but looks amazing and festive! It definitely wins my Good Housekeeping seal of approval.
Happy baking and Happy Holidays!
