"A friend shared this delicious recipe with me," writes Jean Andrea from Burkesville, Kentucky. The crisp yet chewy cookies are bound to satisfy big and little kids alike, "They're a hit wherever I take them," Jean adds.

    I love this recipe! I make it frequently, and use about a 1/2c of dark chocolate chips to balance the sweetness. It's a new favorite in our house.

    I always make these with mini chocolate chips instead of the toffee bits and they are perfect every time!

    My family really likes these cookies. After reading the reviews I'm going to try some of the changes and see how we like them.

    I used 1/2 c unsalted butter and 1/4 c light butter, 8 oz English toffee bits, 1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips, and 1/2 c pecan halves, chopped and toasted. I chilled the batter before shaping and baking. I got 60 cookies total. The batches cooked 9 minutes (slightly undercooked) tasted best.

    I made these cookies for a youth group function and they were gobbled up! When I make them again, I think I will let the dough chill a little because the cookies spread a bit more than I would like. They were delicious though!

    These have nice flavor. Crisp on the edge, soft in the center make them a good balance. Will definitely make again

    My mom makes these cookies nearly every time we go camping. She makes one minor change and substitutes the toffee bits for butterscotch chips. We have nicknamed these cookies "bear cookies" because they were once stolen by a bear cub off our picnic table. We later found the container, but the cookies were all gone!
