Recipe Comments & Reviews

Fabulous cookies!! Who could resist pecans, chocolate chips and toffee bits :) These were a family favorite and will be made for years to come. We also made smaller cookies, using a cookie scoop rather than the 1/4 cup.
This has become a staple of our holiday celebrations every year even though it's not a "seasonal" cookie. The only adjustment I make is to use a small 1" cookie scoop rather than baking at 1/4 C fulls. That way they can be enjoyed in smaller quantities and you don't OD on the sugar!
I made this recipe with carob chips instead of choco chips, for a sister-in-law who can't have chocolate. They tasted great and she loved them! Thank you for such a tasty recipe.
I have made this cookie often, and it always is consumed with joy. It has become one of my standards.
My husband said I never need to make another cookie! Everyone that has had one of these cookies loves them!
