Just making it into the TOH cookie book says something about this recipe and this one was a catagory runner-up to the winner. I personally prefer a crisper cookie on the chewy side but these were pretty good. They taste even better the next day. I will be making these again. Mahalo for sharing : )

Wonderful cookies! I'm never disappointed when it comes to TOH! I made these for my husband to take to a luncheon at work and they were gone quickly! A nice soft cookie with a little crunch surprise in the toffee bits, and the after taste reminds you of a piece of German chocolate cake! What's not to love? :) Thank you for sharing this!
