  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In your mixer on high-speed beat your butter for 10 minutes, it will turn from yellow to white in colour.
  3. Next mix in your icing sugar and cornstarch. Mix until fully combined.
  4. Add in your flour 1 cup at a time and mix until combined.
  5. Place your mixture in the fridge for 10-15 minutes to get a bit firm.

  1. Melt your chocolate in a small bowl in the microwave in 15 second intervals stirring after each time.
  2. Place your melted chocolate in a Glad bag and snip the tip then drizzle all over your cookies. Immediately sprinkle on your toffee bits while the chocolate is still melted.
  3. If using a glaze mix together 1 cup of icing sugar and a few drops of water at a time until you get a glaze that is not too thick and not too runny.
  4. Brush on glaze and then immediately sprinkle on festive sprinkles!
