How to Make FAUX MRS. FIELD'S COOKIES
- In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla.
- In another large bowl, mix together flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
Add to butter mixture slowly until well incorporated.
Add chocolate chips and nuts
- Make golf ball size cookie balls. Space 2 inches apart on UNGREASED cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 6-10 minutes(for soft, chewy cookies). Cookies will be soft but will harden slightly as it cools.
You may have to test the first batch; if cookies are still too soft after it has cooled, then increase baking time by a minute or two until you have the texture you desire. Caution: The longer you bake it, it will get even harder as it cools. The most I've baked it was 12 minutes for a crispier cookie although I prefer the soft chewy kind.
**Footnote**: If adding additional ingredients, you can reduce the choc chips to 1 and half bags, chopped nuts to 2 cups and add 1 cup of golden raisins and/or dried cranberries or dates if preferred.
**You can also reduce this recipe in half because it makes a LOT of cookies. I always give away to family and friends so I use the full recipe.
