    This is almost identical to the recipe I made last night. I found mine on another blog I visit regularly, and they were entitled, “Way to a Man’s Heart” cookies. Instead of butterscotch chips, there was 1 package choco chips, 1 package toffee bits and 1 cup coconut. YUM-O! Thank goodness I hit the gym both yesterday and today. Hope you feel better!

    ok, I will have to shamelessly admit that I have made these cookies (minus the heath chips) a total of 3 times since I discovered this recipe. And, I’ll need to add to my admission that I’ve only shared with co-workers once. (they all loved them, of course).
    wow. That sprinkle of salt on top is the most brilliant thing in the world. I love these cookies!!! Thank you!!!!

    Thank you for the wonderful recipe! I have made these twice in the last week. The first batch was devoured by my family (mostly me), and the second batch I divided into four containers to give to people as little thank-yous for the everyday things they do for me. Everyone raved about them!!

    I made these last week and they are the “ultimate” – I love them! Chewy and lightly crispy – the toffee melts some and – oh my just plain sinful! My sweetheart wants them again next week!
