OMG, Mrs Field's Cookies

I have never met a chocolate chip cookie I didn’t like. But, there’s something special about Mrs. Field’s recipe that takes me back to hanging out at The Mall in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Like, totally. The oat bran (Mrs. F used ground oatmeal) adds another layer of flavor – OMG, so delish.

½ cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature

½ cup (100 g) sugar

½ cup (106 g) light brown sugar, packed

1 egg

½ teaspoon vanilla

1 cup (120 g) flour

1 ¼ cups (132 g) oat bran

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon baking powder

¼ teaspoon baking soda

¾ cup (85 g) walnuts, chopped

8 oz (225 g) chocolate chips

Makes 28 cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit.

  • Line cookies sheets with parchment paper.

  • In a large bowl, cream the soft butter and sugars. Beat for a few minutes until the color changes to a pale yellow and sugar granules dissolve.

  • Add the egg and vanilla. Beat until well combined.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, oat bran, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Slowly add to the large bowl. Mix well.

  • Stir in the nuts and chocolate chips until well combined.

  • Scoop out dough in one-ounce balls (like, the size of a golf ball). Place balls two inches apart on lined cookie sheets.

  • Place cookie sheets in the fridge for 5-10 minutes to chill slightly; this will help the dough from spreading too much.

  • Bake for 15-18 minutes until circle in shape with light golden edges and slightly soft centers. A little under-backed is good and will continue to back after removed from the oven. Cool on a wire rack.
