Chocolate Chip Cookies

Nobody makes chocolate chip cookies like Mrs. Fields does! I just love this recipe. These cookies are always a hot seller and don’t last for more than a day in my house. Sometimes I double the dough recipe and keep some unbaked dough in fridge so I can keep making the cookies fresh.  I under-bake these cookies slightly as I love them gooey and chewy. If you cannot find brown sugar, you can substitute with Demerara sugar. It works just as well. Check out the mouth watering picture below and I’ll betcha you’lle be hankerin’ for the cookies right about now!
