The Mrs. Fields' Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
1 C. Butter* 1/2 tsp. Salt
1 C. Sugar 1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 C. Brown Sugar 1 tsp. Baking Soda
2 Eggs 2 1/2 C. Oatmeal
1 tsp. Vanilla 16 oz. Chocolate Chips**
2 C. Flour 1 C. Chopped Pecans (optional)***
Pre-Heat your oven to 375.
Cream softened butter with both sugars until pale and creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until well incorporated.
In a separate bowl combine flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda and add to wet ingredients in two batches, mixing well in between each addition.
Mix oatmeal (by hand), chocolate chips, and nuts (if using) into the dough until well incorporated.
Portion cookies, about a tablespoon, onto nonstick cookie sheets and bake approximately 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
*If you want softer cookies substitute margarine for butter. I often do half butter and half margarine.
**Use any combination of chocolate, butterscotch or candy that you like.
***Use any kind of nuts or dried fruit.
I make these cookies anytime I need to donate something for a bake sale. You can also freeze the the dough and then thaw and bake.Pin It
