Memorable! And in a very good way! First, they have great eye appeal. You can see the bits of toffee, pecans pieces and chocolate chips in this chunky, hefty, buttery looking cookie. I was already pleased and impressed before I even tasted them (ok, I tasted the dough and it was pretty darned good too). I made them larger than the recipe specified, so my intention was just to break off a corner to try them for this review. Wow, one bite to know these are eye popping, jaw dropping, socks knocking off good. The rest of that cookie went down real quick and easy. :) I don't like a too-soft cookie and I knew that all brown sugar could possibly result in that effect. So I used half white, half brown. I don't use butter-flavored Crisco (I don't like it) so I used regular Crisco and added a half teaspoon of butter-vanilla baking emulsion to compensate for the loss of (artificial) butter flavor. I also took a gamble and omitted the milk. Finally, I wanted some CHOCOLATE to go with all those wonderful toffee chips and pecans so I used a full cup instead of the half cup indicated in the recipe. What I got was a beautiful, hefty, hearty, buttery/toffee/pecan/chocolate cookie that was kind of sweet and salty at the same time! Only two reviewers on this awesome recipe?! Hope my review and pic help change that! This one's a real winner.
