I'm not big on posting recipes here on Curbly, but a recent tete a tete with my bud Kestrel resulted in a request for this yummy chocolate chip cookie creation. It was given to me with the title ‘Mrs. Fields’ Chocolate Chip Cookies.’ If it's one of the cookie queen’s authentic recipes, I’m really not sure. What I am sure of is, they are to DIE for. Warning: this recipe makes a very large batch, but it’s really easy to halve or even quarter.
Mrs. Fields’ Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups butter
2 cups light brown sugar
1 ½ cups white granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla
5 cups oatmeal (don't worry, they don't look at all--or even taste very--oatmeal-y!)
4 cups flour
24 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
½ of a large bag of milk chocolate M & M’s
Cream together the first 5 ingredients. Next, grind the oatmeal in a blender into a fine powder. Mix oatmeal with the flour and add to the creamed mixture. Stir well, and then add the chocolate chips and M & M’s. Drop onto un-prepared cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes in a 375 degree oven.
