This recipe shouldn't be called Mrs. Fields if you are going to change it. The baking powder in this recipe that the actual Mrs. Fields recipe doesn't call for makes the cookies too fluffy. 'Fluffy' is not a word that should be used to describe cookies. Omit the baking powder and just bake at 300F like her other cookie recipes.
