Mrs. Fields Chocolate Chip Cookies Mrs. Fields Chocolate Chip Cookies

A classic childhood favorite of chocolate chip cookies.













Trans-fat Free, Low Sodium


1 cup butter
½ cup sugar
cups brown sugar
2 large eggs
teaspoons vanilla extract
cups flour, all-purpose
¾ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
6 ounces chocolate (semi-sweet)
semi-sweet chips
* not incl. in nutrient facts


Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).

In a larger mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla well.

Sift together the flours, salt baking power and baking soda.

Combine the wet and dry ingredients.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

With your fingers place golf ball size dough portions 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 9 minutes or until edges are light brown.

NOTE: It is very important you not exceed the cooking time given above, even if the cookies appear to be underbaked.

When the cookies are removed from the oven the sugar in them will stay hot and continue the cooking process.

The finished product should be soft in the middle and crunchy around the edges.

For variation of this cookie substitute milk chocolate for the semi sweet chocolate and or add 1½ cups chopped walnut walnuts or macadamia nuts to the recipe before baking.

Although you can sub margarine for butter you will have the best results from butter.

The cookie will have a richer taste and will be crisper around the edges like the original.

I made the half batch of these cookies as well, and I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1/4 cup of white flour; 1/4 cup of the butter and 1/4 cup of the olive oil to reduce the saturated fat. And the cookies came out buttery and fluffy, they were definitely not the crispy cookies, they were soft in the center and crispy at the edges. Definitely a keeper and it is a everyone-loved recipe!
