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!
