I made these and halved the recipe, it made 36 medium sized cookies. A large bowl is needed and a strong arm! We do not have toffee chips here in Australia, so I added 200g (about 8 ounces) of diced jersey caramels instead. Although not the best option, it is all I could think of. A great blend of flavours, just wish I had access to all the ingredients! My four children and husband loved them. Note - don't eat while hot! The caramel is VERY hot!!! Be patient and wait, your mouth will thank you.
These are excellent cookies! Not exactly Christie Cookies but very good anyway. I split the recipe and made half chocolate chip and half oatmeal. I will definitely try the white chocolate version and maybe try putting Peanut butter chips in the chocolate chip cookies.
