Taken from "Rosie's Fresh Cream Sugar-Packed Baking Book" one of my all time favorite recipe books! This cookie dough also works beautifully when refrigerated a minimum of 4 hours, it tends to produce a thicker chewier cookie that is crisp around the edges, and also may be frozen, and yes, measure 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour! This is one of my all-time favorite chocolate chip cookie! :)

These are excellent although I had some problems. my first batch came out flat so I re read the recipe and noticed I did everything as directed. Before getting dissapointed I decided to add 1/3 c more flour and I made them smaller. Worked perfectly. Thanks for a keeper. I love the little crunch the toffee pieces give. yum

Yummy! I shared these with some friends and they said it's so good and praised my baking. Thanks to you, of course! After dropping them by the spoonful, I pressed them a bit with my palm as it didn't look like it'll spread much. True enough and they still came out thick. :) I also like shortenings mixed with butter. It gives a texture from cookie packages which isn't too soft. My kind of cookie! Thanks!

Just when you think chocolate chip cookies can't get any better this recipe comes along. The English toffee is a wonderful addition! This is one of the best chocolate chip cookie recipes I've ever had and I will make these often. Thanks, Kittencal!
