"Bravo! A new favorite! For My Grand-Jewels, I substituted Bitter sweet chocolate for Mini-baking M & M's and omitted Pecans. The rest of us Love it just as written."

"These were incredible, and I will make them again and again. I upped the amount of vanilla chips and left out the bittersweet."

"I loved the combination of using shortening and butter. I used butter flavored Crisco shortening. I think it made a nice, rich dough and helped hold the shape of the cookies better. I didn't have any toffee bits but I will put them in next time. They were delicious even without the toffee bits! A new favorite cookie!"

"Quite nice. I enjoyed that it was chewy but crisp when you bit into it. I didn't have the required chips on hand. I used: Ghirardelli bittersweet baking chips (larger sized), dark chocolate morsels, mini chocolate chips and left over milk chocolate chips along with the toffee and nuts. Good over-all flavor, the base dough would be a good starter for other cookies."

"After I got started on these cookies, I realized that I didn't have toffee bits or white chocolate chips, so I used 2 cups of chocolate chips and about 1/2 cup each of butterscotch and peanut butter chips. Yum!"

"Nice and chewy. They turned out exactly like the picture. Make sure you use a sturdy spoon to stir in all the chips."
