    " It was excellent "
    AGSinNC ate it and said...
    These are the best cookies EVER! I followed the recipe exactly, except for two substitutions (because I didn't have ingredients). I used one cup of butter rather than the 1/2 cup each butter and shortening. I also used a 1/2 bag of the toffee chips, rather than breaking up the candy bars. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly and they were AWESOME - sending them to my daughter's boyfriend who is deployed in Iraq... After the first batch came out of the oven, I wanted them to have a bit more coffee taste, so I stirred in 3 teaspoons of instant espresso powder to the remaining batter. I think that may have even made them better! Chewy, crunchy and a guaranteed hit for the coffee lovers in your life - try them!
