Back At School/Mrs. Fields Copycat Chocolate Chip Cookie

I love making homemade cookies for Amber’s lunch box. One lucky kid I say!! I have been thinking about redoing the recipe that has floated around for many years of Mrs. Fields chocolate cookie. You may have seen it. You know the one that someone supposedly thought that the recipe was $25 but the transaction on their visa was $250 and they wouldn’t retract it so the person shared the recipe with the world. It is what urban legends are made of!!! Anyway I have had the recipe for years and yesterday got jiggy with it. This is a fantastic cookie that is soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. When Amber and her friends came home from school these were waiting for them hot out of the oven. I got lots of ooohhs and aaaahhs from them, they loved them.

This recipe makes a huge batch so it could easily be cut in half. I put 2-3 cookies in a small Ziploc bag and freeze them so they are ready for Amber’s lunch box.

    Aww, I wish I had someone to bake me cookies (instead, I’ve gotta bake them for myself)! This looks and sounds like a great cookie. Can you believe I’ve never had or made Mrs. Field’s cookie? That has to change ASAP :)

    These were great and such a huge hit with the kids. They even bragged/teased their dad over Skype about how good they were and they weren’t going to save him any!
