"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 d..." See moreropping 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!)"
