My younger brother comes in every now and then to cook and play video games with us, and happened to join me for the cookie-making extravaganza. This recipe makes a TON of cookies, so I ended up freezing a ball of the dough and baking it later (oh, and it also makes a great snack when you're having one of those bad days...), to find that it was just as good as when I first made the dough.
Anyhoo, most of the photos here are thanks to my brother and his awesome photography skills! Guess the appeal of the camera runs in the fam. There are a lot of "Mrs. Field's Cookies" recipes out there, and so far I haven't found this exact one. I'm guessing it was tweaked somewhere down the line. I assure you this is by far the best one. I promise, if you're a copyright hunter and you're here to shoot me down, I have no idea where this recipe came from NOR do I claim it as my own! I'm just sharing it with the world is all.
You can always half the recipe if this is just too much cookie dough to have in your house (trust me, I'm restricted on how many sweets I can make because otherwise I'd be at the dentist every week), but like I said it freezes well for up to a month.
