What is it about giant cookies that makes them so irresistible?

Who knew that a gingerbread cookie with HEATH Milk Chocolate Toffee bits and a cookie glaze made with HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Mildly Sweet Chocolate Chips could taste so heavenly? Break the finished cookie for a more rustic-looking treat, or cut them in triangles to stick in bowls of ice cream for a more refined finish.

Stir together flour, pumpkin pie spice, salt, black pepper, baking soda and baking powder; set aside.
Beat butter and brown sugar in heavy-duty mixer about 5 minutes or until light and creamy. Beat in egg and molasses. Reduce mixing speed; gradually blend in flour mixture. Stir in 3/4 cup toffee bits. Divide dough into four equal portions. Flat each portion into flat disk; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until firm enough to roll.
Heat oven to 350° F. Roll one disk at a time between two large sheets of parchment paper until about 1/8-inch thick. Transfer parchment paper and cookie to cookie sheet; remove top sheet of parchment paper. Bake cookie 18 to 20 minutes or until very crisp. Cool completely on cookie sheet on wire rack. Repeat for remaining cookie disks.
Make Cookie Glaze; immediately drizzle over cookies and quickly sprinkle with remaining toffee bits. Allow glaze to set. Cut or break each cookie into 10 pieces.
Place 1-1/3 cups HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Chocolate Chips and 4 tablespoons unsalted butter in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at High (100%) 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave at High an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, until chips are melted and smooth when stirred. Using whisk, blend in 1/4 cup hot water. Use immediately.
