"These cookies are fantastic! I made them smaller and got 5 dozen but didn't adjust it any other way. My son LOVED them! I will definitely make these again!"

"I prepared this recipe fir the first time today, 12/15/13! I used my new Taste of Home Christmas recipe book & I made some adjustments to this recipe: I used 3/4 cup each packed brown sugar and white sugar and I used 1 tsp. salt. I greased baking sheets as it's easier for me to remove the cookies from greased baking sheets and I baked 10 minutes! I dropped by teaspoonfuls on purpose to stretch the dough & I used a combination of Nestle's chocolate/peanut-butter chips from the store! I omitted the pecans-I usually do not add any nuts to my cookies in the event there are people who either do not like nuts or are allergic to nuts! I did used the specified amount of toffee bits (Heath Bar) & flaked coconut and white baking chips. I sampled one of the cookies and they are delicious! I found that this recipe made 5 dozen cookies! Thank you for sharing this recipe! I'll turn to this recipe when I want to prepare Chips Galore Cookies! delowenstein"
