Mrs. Fields Cookie Recipe

Years ago  my brother gave me a copy of this recipe with the story of someone paying $250.00 for the recipe.  The story of the infamous $250 cookie recipe from Neiman Marcus (or Mrs. Fields), is a decade-old tall tale kept alive. Whether it is true or not, it is one of the best cookie recipes we have ever had and have been making them for years.  My missionary daughter called the other day asking for the recipe, which sparked my desire to post it to my blog so we would have it when we need it.

This makes a huge batch so you can half the recipe or make the whole recipe and freeze some of the dough to make at a later date.
 Mrs. Fields Chocolate Cookie Recipe


2 cups butter
4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups brown sugar
5 cups blended oatmeal (measure oatmeal and blend in blender to a fine powder)
24 oz. chocolate chips
1 tsp. salt
1 8 oz. Hershey bar (grated - I do not add this if we have added different kinds of chips – vanilla, peanut butter, or butterscotch, I will add them)
4 eggs
2 tsp. baking powder
3 cups chopped nuts (your choice-optional we usually do not add because my little ones do not like nuts in their cookies but they would be good)
2 tsp. vanilla

Cream the butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla; mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and soda. Add chocolate chips, Hershey bar and nuts. Roll into balls and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet..Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes 112 cookies..
