Mrs. Fields Chocolate Chip Cookies


     Yesterday I found a recipe for the most amazing chocolate chip cookies I have ever eaten.  What’s even better is that the recipe is beautifully simple and basic.  It is no surprise that this is the Mrs. Fields recipe for chocolate chip cookies.  I’ve never tried one of her recipes that didn’t turn out fabulously.

     What makes this recipe unique is that instead of creaming the sugars with softened butter, the sugars are mixed together and then cold, cubed butter is added.  Also, instead of baking the cookies at the usual 350˚ Fahrenheit, the oven is kept at a low 300˚ Fahrenheit.  The cookies are soft in the middle, chewy around the edges, and basically just the best…ever!  The batch I baked made a little over three dozen, and I only have two and a half cookies left.  (Don’t worry; I didn’t eat them all myself.  I gave a plate away and brought a big plate to work this morning.  Still, though, these cookies won’t last long no matter where they are brought.)

     Please, please, please make these!  Just thinking about them makes me want to run into the kitchen and bake another batch.  Plus, if you make them, you will be able to eat one warm when the chocolate is all nice and gooey. You can even drink a tall glass of milk with them.   Need I say more?

  2. Okay, these cookies are AMAZING! I even had to make some changes (whoops, I ran out of all-purpose flour…so let’s see how half cake flour works, for example lol), and they’re still fantastic. Oh, and I did end up using light brown sugar because it’s all had. Still so good!

    • I actually have no clue. I just used regular dark brown sugar. You could probably get away with light brown sugar, too, but it most likely would turn out a little differently since dark brown sugar has that deep, almost molasses-like flavor.

  3. That’s crazy! I’ve never heard of not creaming the butter and sugar in chocolate chip cookies…I love finding different ways of doing things. I think I may make these tonight…. 🙂

    • You definitely should! Make sure to make them nice and big! I used a tablespoon measuring spoon to scoop the dough and really heaped it high. I found that the bigger cookies were even better than the smaller cookies because they had that nice, soft interior.

  4. Maybe I’m blind, but where is the recipe for the Mrs. Fields cookies? You totally made me want to make and eat 3 dozen of them!
