Copycat Mrs Fields Chocolate Chip Cookies. If you have had Mrs Fields cookies you know what I’m talking about. Super thick, chewy and big chocolate chip cookies. Crunchy on the outside soft in the middle.
We all love a GOOD chocolate chip cookie and on my blog you will see I have a particular fondness for them. From my chocolate chip cookie recipe, to my candied pecan chocolate chip cookies right through to chocolate chip cookie bars! I’m adding to the list today with a classic. The Queen of chocolate chip cookies that is Mrs Fields copycat recipe.
I first saw the recipe on Popsugar where they actually visited Mrs Fields and made the Mrs Fields Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe so you know this recipe is the real deal, copycat recipe! How cool is that?
There are a few things in this recipe that makes them stand out from other chocolate chip cookie recipes.
Firstly we use cold butter. Usually recipes call for softened butter but these specify cold, hard butter to achieve perfectly thick and chewy cookies. We also use dark brown sugar to get the rich almost caramel like flavour in these cookies. Also the darker the sugar the more moisture the cookie will have so the softer they will be. You can skip the dark brown sugar and use regular brown sugar if you wish.
We also add 2 whole cups of chocolate chips! This means lots of chocolate chips in every. Single. Bite! Chocolate chip cookie heaven!
I used two tablespoons of dough for each cookie but it you want big, bakery style cookies I recommend using 1/4 cup of dough per cookie or alternatively you could use this large cookie scoop. Much each than rolling and shaping the cookie yourself.
You can now enjoy making your own Mrs Fields Chocolate Chip Cookies with this copycat recipe. I hope you enjoy having fun in the kitchen and as always be sure to #lightscamerabake on Instagram if you make these or any of my other recipes.
