I recognized these cookies as one of my Christmas favorites from childhood. Only thing is, they are missing the chopped pecans that make them taste like "toffee" bars. For all those who thought they lacked taste or taste of toffee, add 1/2cup pecans and give it another whirl.

Tasted good but I thought the dough was hard to spread- it was very sticky. I think these are more suited for the candy category, mine turned out very crispy almost like brittle. Taste good but I was hoping for more of a cookie bar consistancy.

These are very good! I did add 1 egg to get a more chewy bar. Sweet and tasty. I will make again.

This is the same recipe my mother used and it's delicious. However, instead of mixing the chocolate chips into the bar, she would melt the chocolate chips on top after she removed the bars from the oven. Either way, these bars are scrumptious.

Very similar to bars my mom used to make. I halved the recipe and put in an 8x8" with the chips spread on top as others mentioned. Very easy with ingredients that are always around.

This is a really good recipe. My mom always made these when we were kids too, and it's always been one of my favorites. Another way to make these is to not put the chocolate chips in the dough, but rather spread them on top of the bars when they come out of the oven. If I do it this way, I usually use a whole bag of chocolate chips. Either way, these are awesome!

I used to make these cookies all the time. But somewhere along the line, I lost the pan I baked them in! I used a 1/2 sheet cake pan, but it was too big, and the dough spread really thin. I didn't overbake them, but they were darker than usual and VERY crunchy. My co-workers still enjoyed them, but I was a little disappointed. Not your fault, Mary Ellen - the dough itself (from the KA paddle) was DELICIOUS. Just need to replace my missing pan. MORAL: Use the right size!!

Hmmm doesn't really taste like toffee. Tastes more like chocolate chip cookie squares. Anyhow everyone in my family loved them! Yum!
