Hi Robin,
I am a cook in the Submarine force of the United States Navy. One of the best liked cookies that we bake while at sea is the "Crisp Toffee Bars". We have about 150 men onboard and usually end up making about 400 portions to satisfy their appetites. I am sending the recipe for you. Try these and serve them with the knowledge that the United States Submarine Community loves them and would probably not know what to do if we stopped baking them.
Enjoy! - Mark Adams By the way, I have really enjoyed your entire site!
