These are supposed to be similar to Mrs. Fields cookies, but I haven't tried them out yet.

Little drops of heaven!! I made these again today but I reduced the baking time to 15 min because I prefer a soft, chewy cookie.

I got this recipe from a girl I used to work with about 10 years ago & it is a favorite in my house. They are really good!!

I don't know where you got this recipe from, but it is a winner in my household. I saw a previous reviewer writing about the sticky dough, and how hard it was to roll. I put the topping in a wide coffee mug, and swirled the little dough bits around individually after dropping them in until they were evenly coated, made it very easy to handle. I will be halving this recipe next time, as I am sending five people home with these taystee cookies today. Thank you Zusie!!
