Chocolate chip cookies like Mrs. Fields makes

These cookies are a combination of oatmeal and chocolate chip. They are very rich, but very tasty. The recipe was obtained from a friend of a friend, who supposedly paid a large amount of money for it. However, the cookies do not taste \fBexactly the same as the name brand.


(Yield approximately 60)


  1. Preheat oven to
  2. Cream together the butter and the sugars.
  3. Sift together flour, oatmeal, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and shredded chocolate bar.
  4. Add eggs and vanilla to creamed sugar and butter, then mix all ingredients together.
  5. Mix chocolate chips and nuts into mixture.
  6. Drop by onto ungreased cookie sheet in small drops.
  7. Bake 6 minutes or until done.


A blender works very well to powder the oats and the chocolate bar. The blender chops the oatmeal finer than a food processor. The powdered chocolate bar should melt at the touch of your fingers.

I prefer my cookies just barely done, so that they remain chewy. If you want to send your taste buds into heaven, butter the cookies as they come out of the oven (still hot), and eat them still warm with a glass of \fBcold milk.

Note that cocoa is not the same thing as a shredded chocolate bar. Note also that oatmeal is not the same thing as quick-cooking oats or instant oatmeal. Oatmeal means "rolled oats," such as Quaker oats.


Difficulty: easy to moderate.
Time: 30 minutes.
Precision: measure the ingredients.
