A Copycat Starbucks Toffeedoodle Cookie that is better than the original. A hybrid of the snickerdoodle, this cookie is spiced with cinnamon and toffee.
We decided to skip Thanksgiving this year. If you have been around awhile, you know that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I’ve been feeling a little homesick and just all around out of sorts. I think that I assumed that this move would be a piece of cake, and much to my surprise it is a big deal to move halfway around the world. It has far more positives than negatives, but it most definitely has its challenges. We haven’t left Germany since the kids started school, and I was beginning to get a little shack wacky. Since we had the long weekend, we decided to see if there were any cheap plane tickets and I found tickets to Manchester, England that were too good to pass up.
We decided to fly into Manchester on Thanksgiving Day, and then drive up the coast to Edinburgh the following morning. We rented a car, and after the initial panic of driving and being on the other side, it was a lovely drive through the Lake District. We made it to Edinburgh in the late afternoon, settled in our adorable Airbnb, and had a lovely time at the Christmas Market. We had a relaxing weekend, took in the sights, and even saw some famous Harry Potter spots. We had such a nice visit, our only regret was that we didn’t have enough time there. It will be a revisit for sure.
It’s only fitting that my recipe after coming home from Scotland feature toffee. You can buy toffee all over the place in Scotland. I also love to make toffee, making homemade candy is so rewarding. If you have ever had a Starbucks Toffeedoodle, you are in luck, this is an excellent copycat recipe. This is a hybrid of a snickerdoodle, but I am going to say that mine is better than the one you get at The ‘Bucks. These are a perfect holiday cookie and freeze really well. (If they last that long.) Brew some coffee, grab a good book, and cozy up with these delicious copycat Starbucks Toffeedoodles.
