This is a double recipe, since I use a rather large baking sheet and like my toffee cookies thick. You can make a half recipe, but you'll want a baking sheet on the smaller side. BAKING TIME will be affected based on double/single recipe, and how thick you end up pressing them! You can tell they're done when the edges are set and slightly golden, and the egg-white over the entire thing is nicely browned.
