Homemade cookies always fly off the table at any gathering. I baked up a batch of chewy Oatmeal Toffee Cookies for this week’s Sunday Supper pool party theme.

I love baking for a gathering. It gives me a chance to make treats that my family might snub. Oatmeal, coconut and toffee. Not always popular with my crew. Only me.

So I baked up a batch of these loaded oatmeal toffee cookies to take to my sister’s house in Colorado. Us Weber girls stick together when it come to sweets. I knew Maddy would help me eat them. And love them every bit as much as I did!

Summer Celebrations

As we roll into August, thoughts of heading back to school and the end of summer vacation come to the forefront. But hold your horses, we need to kick back and fully enjoy the last weeks of the season. I’ll be pining for these sultry dog days of summer come January. So today, the Sunday Supper gang is gathering around the pool for one heck of a party. From icy cocktails to refreshing salads and dips as well as tantalizing desserts, we have all sorts of yummy recipes to share.

My mind went straight to desserts when contemplating my contribution, but it had to be one that would hold up sitting poolside. Frosted cakes and anything needing refrigeration were ruled out, but the easily portable cookie was ruled in. Again, I thought of those toffee and coconut laden oat cookies and my almond oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips. I resisted overloading these buttery gems with extra chocolate which would turn into a melty mess from the heat of the day. Instead, I relied on toffee chunks for a minimal chocolate fix. My family might not swarm around these gems, but I promise, they are outstanding. Just ask Maddy. Add some chewy Oatmeal Toffee Cookies to your baking list!

  4. I have a weakness for oatmeal cookies – but do NOT like raisins in them. Toffee… I love toffee… I think I just drooled enough to be embarrassing.

  5. I always make a dessert that I love but Mr. J does not for potlucks. Then I proceed to eat way too many 🙂 These cookies look great. Your family is a fool sometimes with your delicious desserts.

  6. I’ll be hanging at the cookie tray with you and Maddy! Can’t resist toffee!

  20. Oats, toffee & chocolate?! Oh yaaaassssss! Liz, these look perfect – I love how craggy the surfaces of the cookies are. Pinning so that I can bake these asap.

  26. Lizzy,
    Your treats will always be devoured. I can’t believe your family would snub these delicious cookies. It’s been pretty hot this summer but I try not to complain too much since we had such a cold winter.

  27. That bowlful is mine right? Yup, I just need a nice cold glass of milk and I will be a happy girl!

  28. Oh my gosh, my mouth is watering. These look wonderful!

  29. I agree, these remaining days of summer need to be fully appreciated and enjoyed (you and I both know what happens when November hits Indiana and it doesn’t get better until deep in April). The guys here are going to love you for posting these cookies, they absolutely love all those ingredients and will be begging for more from the looks of them.

  30. These sound so delicious. I love oatmeal cookies (I’m not that in to other ones) and toffee in there too sounds great!

  31. You have no idea how much I LOVE Heath bars! I’d be all over these!

  32. Why do I have to always look at 30 posts about the way something LOOKS when I want to know about the outcome of actually making it? Wastes my time. This happens on almost every site.
