"Will You Marry Me?" Cookies...

These cookies are delicious! I have had many marriage proposals after the first bite. Men LOVE these cookies!
 A friend is having a milestone birthday this weekend. 
They are coming to our house for the Red Bluff Bull & Gelding Sale this weekend.
 So I called his wife to see what dessert he wanted for his birthday on Saturday. An almost immediate response was; "Will You Marry Me" Cookies!
 Happy Birthday Fred...enjoy YOUR day and the COOKIES!
We LOVE you! }...
"Will You Marry Me Cookies"
by NeeCee
"Will You Marry Me Cookies"
 2 cubes of softened butter
1 cup of packed brown sugar
1/2 cup of sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon nutmeg 
1/4 of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of salt
3 cups of oatmeal, old fashion oats
1 cup of chocolate chips
1 cup of toffee bits (8 ounces)
1 cup of chopped pecans
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes
Cool cookies for one minute before removing from cookie sheet.
Store in an airtight container.
 Cream together butter, brown sugar, sugar, eggs and vanilla.
Blend well.
Add flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon and oatmeal.
Blend well.
 Next add chocolate chips, toffee chips and pecans. 
Blend well.
 Use a table spoon to scoop out the cookie dough.
Prepare your cooking sheets with cooking spray.
 Roll & shape into balls. Set your oven to 325-350 degrees.
 (start with 350, lower if needed to 325, every oven can be different)
Bake @ 10-12 minutes until done.  
Cool for 1 minute, but not longer than two minutes.
Spray your spatula with cooking spray to remove cookies easily from the pan.
 
 Ohhh yum... these are GOOD!
 Little crispy edges and soft middles....OH MY!
Happy Birthday Fred...

Awesome with a cup of coffee!
 **If you want to serve the cookies warm...turn the oven on to heat. Preheat at 350 for a few minutes. Then turn the oven off and set a few cookies on a baking sheet warming slightly...Serve with coffee or milk!
 Helpful Hint:
If you want to freeze cookie dough for later;
make a cookie log and wrap in foil & freeze.
Mark the outside with the date and the name of cookies.
Then freeze until needed.  This saves a lot of time. 
These are great to have on hand for unexpected guests.
Simply, partially thaw, slice and bake!
Wa-Lah.....Cookies Ready! 
Enjoy...NeeCee Signature

Oh, man...I have all the ingredients except the toffee bits. I think I will have to run out and buy some first thing tomorrow morning. These look scrumptious!
