Have you ever enjoyed a warm, chewy chocolate chip cookie fresh from the oven at Mrs. Fields and wondered how they make the cookies taste so good? We have, too; that's why we went inside Mrs. Fields's kitchen to learn all of the bakery's secrets. Watch the video now to see how the iconic cookies are made.
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup dark brown sugar (firmly packed)
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup cold salted butter, cut into cubes
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 300°F.
- In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix well with a wire whisk.
- In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, blend the sugars at medium speed.
- Add the cold butter, and mix to form a grainy paste, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add eggs and vanilla extract, and mix at low to medium speed just until blended. Do not overmix.
- Add the flour mix and chocolate chips, and blend at a low speed just until mixed. Do not overmix.
- Drop by rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart.
- Bake 20-22 minutes until golden. Transfer cookies immediately to a cool surface with a spatula. You can line sheets with parchment and transfer to a cold surface to do it faster.
