Recipe by Bertha C.
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.

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.
