Mrs. Fields

Who doesn’t love Mrs. Fields? Honestly, I hadn’t thought much about her until recently. We were visiting friends in Maryland, and our host made these delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies. I couldn’t get enough of them. I even took a baggie of them “to go” for our car ride home. Her recipe? Mrs. Fields!

There is a shocking (well, it was shocking to me) secret in this recipe. Mrs. Fields takes oatmeal, grinds it into a fine powder, and then adds it to the cookie dough. CRAZY!!!

I put some Quaker Oats into my mini prep....

A few pulses later, it looks like this!

I am not sure how Mrs. Fields came up with this technique, but it makes a really delicious chocolate chip cookie. The rest of the recipe is pretty standard.

This is a hearty dough...a little thicker than my typical cookie dough.

Scoop out the cookies as usual.

Then bake at 375° for 6-8 minutes. Mine took the full 8 minutes. I have to say, these cookies are really magnificent (especially when they are still warm). If I had to rate this cookie, I would say that I prefer the dough of the Nestle Tollhouse cookie. But once the cookies are baked, I prefer the Mrs. Fields cookie.

They are best fresh out of the oven. Enjoy!
