Mrs. Fields is a chain of cookie stores which was started in the Utah area. I don't know if this is really her recipe, but it's sure a good imitation. This really makes a lot, so when I make them, I freeze several after them have been baked for later use.
- 1⁄2 lb butter (use real butter)
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups flour
- 2 1⁄2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal
- 0.5 (16 ounce) bag chocolate chips
- 1 1⁄2 cups chopped nuts
- Cream butter, sugar and eggs.
- Gradually add remaining ingredients and mix well.
- Shape into good size balls and place 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
- Press slightly.
- Bake at 400°F for 6 minutes only--no longer.
- Do not remove from pan until cool.
This makes a large batch--too large to mix in my heavy-duty Kitchenaid. Next time, I will only make half of the recipe at a time to make mixing easier. I also found they cooked better if I smashed the balls to about 1/2 inch thick before baking. Overall, a very nice cookie.
You should know Mrs.Fields started out in California,and that's where her first shops were,you can check yourself at mrsfieldsdotcom I'm sure these are great cookies though!
These are S-O-O-O-O yummy!!! I have a version of this recipe that is basically the same except that it calls for 24 ounces of chocolate chips plus an 8-ounce bar of plain Hershey's chocolate, grated. I made these without the grated chocolate. I also used all fructose instead of the white and brown sugars. Instead of the white flour, I used a mixture of three-fourths whole wheat pastry flour and one-fourth soy flour.
