This recipe does taste like Mrs. Field's. When I make them it does not take long for my husband and three boys to make them disappear.
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Finally, mix in the chocolate chips. Shape dough into golf ball sized balls and place them 3 inches apart into ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
