If I could give this recipe SIX stars, I would! I have made this over and over again - it's my family's ALL-TIME FAVORITE! If I'm making cookies for neighbors, friends, or get-togethers, this is the recipe I make. I go a little further, though - I double the recipe and also add a bag of white chocolate chips. If I don't have time to bake all of the batter, I freeze it, and it's ready for next time. This is the best cookie recipe ever! Thanks for sharing!

I made these several months ago when I was searching for recipes with toffee. They were good, but I'm not sure I would make again. I don't think I was in love with the cinammon-suger/ toffee combination.

This is a wonderful recipe! The five stars are for taste and time in the kitchen. These cookies bake up higher than they do wider so you can fit about 2 1/4 dozen on a 12X15 cookie sheet. Quick to make, easy to bake, the dough need some hand help in the end once the toffee bits are added. A BIG hit with the snickerdoodle lovers at the office!

Toffee makes these snickerdoodles amazing.. plus it's one of the few snickerdoodle recipes that stayed soft after a day! Highly recommended.

Delicious! A wonderful variation on the classic Snickerdoodle cookie.

Surprisingly, this is a cookie that tastes better after cooled rather than fresh out of the oven. I think the toffee bits had melted in the oven, but after they're cooled, they caramelize again and it really does kick this cookie up a notch! I added some cinnamon to the batter and flattened the individual dough balls b/c I find that cookies with shortening tend to keep shape and not flatten on their own.

This recipe is wonderful. I made it for a Thanksgiving snack and everyone in the family LOVED it. This recipe was very easy to follow and it turned out perfectly. The toffee definitely did add a wonderful taste to the usual snickerdoodle.

I didn't use the shortening I used 2 sticks of butter instead. I also used 2 cups of oatmeal and only 1 3/4 cups of flour. They tasted AWESOME!!!
