"This is a recipe from 1960 that Heloise and her family always enjoy. It is a simple brown sugar refrigerator cookie that can easily be made ahead of time and frozen before slicing and baking."

packed brown sugar
This recipe was very disappointing. The consistency of the dough was very sticky and could not be rolled into logs like the recipe suggested - not even after chilling it for hours. I ended up just dropping the dough by spoonfuls (a horrible process with the sticky dough) onto cookie sheets. Though they rose perfectly, turned a perfect golden color and are nice and soft, they taste nothing at all like the promised "toffee"! (The most distinct flavor I can pick out when eating them is SALT!)
Today my local paper published a letter from Heloise declaring a "swan song" for this recipe. Reason? There doesn't seem to be any way to control their consistency. I agree, but I will continue to make them once a month because they are so yummy...
