    Nice recipe, but no way you get 6 dozen cookies if you use rounded tablespoon size pieces of dough. I got just over 2 dozen thick cookies. I reduced sugar to 1/2 cup and used sweetened, dried cranberries.

    I thought they were very good. I did not put in the toffee and I used white chocolate chips instead of the semisweet chocolate.

    With this recipe I didn't have enough semi-sweet available and put in white chocolate chips to make up the difference and still had very tasty results.

    Somewhat dryer than I think of as a cookie.

    Really, Really good. However, the toffee bits were unnoticeable to me. A winner fur sure.

    These cookies are terrific. However, i did alter the recipe a bit the second time I made therm. Instead of using 1 cup of white sugar, I used 3/4 cp. white sugar and 3/4 cp. brown sugar. I feel it made the texture of the cookie much better and added the caramel color they were missing.

    I am making these again right now... I took them to my family gathering and had good reviews. I love the chocolate chip mixed with green mints, it adds a nice Christmas flavor AND color. They are my new chocolate chip cookie!! Thanks a bunch!

    These cookies are the best cookies ever! I made a batch and took them to work and they disappeared so fast I have had to promise to make more.
