Mrs. Fields Cookies {My Favorite}

by Megan on March 4, 2010

So these cookies are called Mrs. Fields cookies, but my mom refers to them as Megan’s Cookies. These are my most favorite and I hadn’t made them until now because I didn’t have a blender for the oatmeal! Ok… I’ve had a blender since last summer, so what’s my problem? Well, one of my friends is having a birthday today and he love love loves oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. So there you go. I made him the best ones.

P.S. After work today I’m out. Out of chocolate chips. Out of town. Out of Michigan. Driving up a storm. I’ll be back Sunday and depending on the time I get back… I’ll bake something for you.

P.P.S. Look at this dough! It’s packed with semisweet chocolate chips, grated milk chocolate and ground oatmeal. These are my favorite, and you guys are my favorites. You totally deserve these in your life!

Mrs. Fields Cookies {makes about 6 dozen}
Recipe from Mrs. Field’s + Mrs. DeCookie

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks), room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 cups ground oatmeal*
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 12 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
  • 4 oz. grated milk chocolate

* Put the oatmeal in a blender until coarsely ground.

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer beat the butter and the sugars together until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla. Beat until combined.
  2. In another medium bowl whisk together the flour, ground oatmeal, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Beat into the sugar and egg mixture until all mixed together. With a wooden spoon, and using some muscle,  stir the chocolate chips and grated chocolate into the dough.
  3. Bake at 375°F for 7-8 minutes or until golden on top and set. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling. Then maybe eat them for dinner, or give them to a hip friend of yours for their birthday.

Been following your blog for a few months now. Made these cookies and they’re yummy! They came out a little flat, but all my cookies seem to do that. Keep up the mega-bites!!

Hi,
I just found your blog and think it is simply wonnderful.
I have a question about the ground oatmeal…is it 2 1/2 cups of oatmeal that you then grind, or it is 2 1/2 cups of already ground oatmeal?
Thank you. I look forward to going through all of your blog.
Warm regards from Australia,
Angela

Hey Angela,
It’s 2 1/2 cups oatmeal before it’s ground.

I’m glad you found me!
