Cake Mix Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
A white cake mix works just fine, too. I also added an extra egg b/c it seemed a bit dry. Next time I would try adding 2 tbs. water instead, as the other reviewers suggest.

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
I've made these 3 times. Twice during Christmas and once again yesterday. My 1st 2 attempts were absolutely delicious. My 3rd, not so much! So after comparing what I did differently between attempts,I have this to share: 1) You MUST use real butter. Do not try to sub margarine. It won't work! Use the full 2 sticks. 2) Use a CHEAP store brand saltine cracker. The more expensive Keebler & Nabisco brands end up looking & tasting like a cracker smeared with toffee & chocolate. The cheaper ones absorb the toffee & result in a light & crispy product. 3) The pecans are a must! 4) Make sure you boil the mixture for the required 3 minutes. Otherwise the toffee won't harden properly. If you do it correctly, the finished candy will pull easily away from the foil all in one hard piece. It looks like a giant candy bar.
