Mrs. Fields Cookies

My family has had this recipe for who knows how long.  The copy we have is stained, torn, faded.  But the cookies the recipe makes are oh-so-good.

The story behind it I first heard from my Uncle Moky, and then I read it again on the copy of the recipe we have.

A woman bought the recipe for the some of the delicious Neiman Marcus/Mrs. Fields cookies, thinking that it cost $2.50.  But no, it cost $250.  So she determined to share this recipe with others, to get her money’s worth out of it.

And here it is.

Mrs. Fields Cookies

Cream together:
2 cups butter
2 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar
Add:
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
Mix together:
4 cups flour
5 cups oatmeal (put small amounts in blender until it turns to powder. Measure first, then blend. Follow exactly.)
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda

Mix together all ingredients and add 24 oz. bag of chocolate chips and 1 large Hershey bar (8 oz) grated and 3 cups chopped nuts, any kind. (note: 2 cups chocolate chips enough)

Bake on ungreased cookie sheet. Maybe golf ball size cookies, place 2 inches apart and bake at 375º for 10 -12 minutes approximately. Makes 112 cookies.
