  1. When I was a teenager Christie's Cookies had a store next to the photography booth I worked at located inside the Opryland Theme park. This was 1991ish. They were amazing then. They are amazing now. The first time I made this recipe was before I had a kitchenaid. I had a JC Penny brand stand mixer and smoke started coming off the motor. Its pretty thick. The Goodwill stand mixer died that day but it was worth it. At that time that stand mixer was decades old and it did come from Goodwill as that was all that I could afford.
  2. I’ve never had the pleasure of Christie’s cookies, but this recipe was fantastic. I only used Wilbur dark chocolate chips (from Lititz PA) & the cookies came out moist, chewy & absolutely delicious.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Very tasty cookies. These turned out just perfect for me and my DH couldn't quit eating them. A wonderful recipe. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!!


  1. I made this vegan by replacing the butter with Earth Balance margarine and the eggs with three tablespoons of aquafaba per egg. I do love butter and eggs but was making this for someone in my family who has allergies. I also replaced the toffee bits with extra nuts. Oh, and I toasted the nuts before adding them. Everyone who had these loved them. I did have to adjust the cooking time. What worked for me was 325°F for 12 minutes. My oven may run a little hot.


I am a housewife who cooks purely for pleasure. I usually tell people that cooking is my Prozac. Nothing relaxes me more than going into the kitchen and getting my hands dirty.
