These are excellent although I had some problems. my first batch came out flat so I re read the recipe and noticed I did everything as directed. Before getting dissapointed I decided to add 1/3 c more flour and I made them smaller. Worked perfectly. Thanks for a keeper. I love the little crunch the toffee pieces give. yum
Yummy! I shared these with some friends and they said it's so good and praised my baking. Thanks to you, of course! After dropping them by the spoonful, I pressed them a bit with my palm as it didn't look like it'll spread much. True enough and they still came out thick. :) I also like shortenings mixed with butter. It gives a texture from cookie packages which isn't too soft. My kind of cookie! Thanks!
Just when you think chocolate chip cookies can't get any better this recipe comes along. The English toffee is a wonderful addition! This is one of the best chocolate chip cookie recipes I've ever had and I will make these often. Thanks, Kittencal!
A recent viewing of Alton Brown's Good Eats has me thinking about what makes the perfect cookie. I absolutely loved the combination of walnuts, chocolate and toffee in this one and will make that more routine. The cookie itself was well recieved by the troops here who made quick work of the batch. Personally, I think I would go with a little more butter and a little less shortnening next time. The recipe makes super-sized cookies and I carved out 3 dozen cookies made with 2 tablespoons (not 3) of dough. Baked they were over 2 inches in sized. I chilled my dough 4 hours as suggested and felt this really helped the cookie shape. I did bake mine about 13 minutes, even with the smaller size. Thanks Kitz.
Very good and easy to make. Better than anything that you can buy in the store.
