Ingredients

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup vegetable oil

1 cup sugar

1 cup confectioners' sugar

1/4 teaspoon almond extract

1/2 teaspoon orange extract

2 eggs

4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cream of tartar

1 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons orange zest

2 cups sliced almonds

2 cups English toffee bits

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven at 350 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add the butter, oil and the sugars. Using a hand-held mixer, beat until combined. Beat in the extracts. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt in a separate bowl. Gradually add to the creamed mixture. Stir in orange zest, almonds and toffee bits.
  3. Drop by teaspoonfuls, 2-inches apart, onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake until golden brown, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven to a wire rack to cool before serving.
