    I have made this recipe twice and was NOT at all disappointed! One of the type of chocolate chips I'd used on 3/3/2020 was bittersweet chocolate chips (3/4 cup) and omitted the pecans as there are people who have allergies to nuts. I'd chopped the chips; baked 13 as a drop cookie on a greased baking pan and the rest on a parchment paper-lined 15x10x1" baking pan. Pan cookie baked 20 minutes and drop cookies 10 minutes!

    I have made these a few times and every time they don’t disappoint! I’ve made these for birthdays and they go quickly! Sometimes I don’t have all the ingredients but they still come out great.

    We love these. I leave out the toffee and nuts and use chocolate chunks. My son has requested these for his birthday "cake." I'm wondering if anyone has put them in a cake pan or two and cooked them that way.

    Yummy! The only changes I made, and not intentionally but because of what I had available, was mixed light and dark brown sugar and threw in a 1/2 cup M

    My family loved these cookies! I omitted the pecans because of their tastes but it would have been nice to have for the crunch, although the toffee gave the crunch, too.

    These cookies are amazing. I took dinner to work and my colleagues raved over them. They are sweet, chocolatey, and crispy. These definitely make my go-to cookie list.

    I made these as written with regular shortening, and omitting the pecans because I didn't have any. They were fantastic, and I think the pecans will make them even better.
