Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Accidental Chef

I found this on MSN.com in the context of wooing your guy with food. I was hesitant to use shortening but they taste great. This recipe reflects a different size and cooking time from the original and creates a cookie very much like a "Mrs. Field's" in looks and taste, tell me what you think.

Oh wow this are delicous!! I think I found my new favorite cookie!! I have a few, I am known as the cookie lady to friends and family!!These are easy to mix up, as easy as a cookie can get! I love the combination of chocolate and oatmeal. The timing is a bit off I only baked mine for 13 minutes but that maybe my oven. Delicious cookie you have Accidental chef thanks so posting this recipe!!
