More Bake - Sale Goodies

As Friday draws near, I'm becoming more and more consumed with bakery goodies for the CAFP fundraiser. Yup, this is another mouth-watering treat! Apple cider mix, apple flavouring and the best part of all - toffee bits - make these some pretty special cookies. Because it's a fundraiser after all, I made these pretty much steering-wheel sized (it took me three giant baking sheets, and I only got 20 total!), but normally I'd cut the size down. They aren't too sweet either due to the cider mix, and they stay chewy because of the corn syrup. I can't wait to see what the folks at school think! As long as they vote "yes" with their wallets and their tastebuds, it's all good!

Sorry the post is so short, but ya know, it is midnight! I gotta sleep sometime, in between cookies and class!
