I wanted a recipe to mimic the flavor of Mrs. Field's because I needed to make a 12" round cookie cake for a family function, and they always rave about Mrs. Fields cookies. This recipe yielded a 12" "cake" and 20 extra cookies. The cookie "cake" was perfectly cooked in 20 minutes. Thanks for the delicious recipe. January 28, 2010: I made this again using a 17.25'x11.5'x1' cookie sheet/jelly roll pan and it came out great. I used parchment paper instead of greasing the pan. Cooking time remained the same at 22 minutes.

I just finished making these. They are a so-so chocolate chip oatmeal cookie. My 9-yr-old said they taste "icky" and threw hers away. Mrs. Field's recipe? No way! I bought some real Mrs. Field's cookies yesterday and these are nothing like them. At all!

well, not exactly Mrs. Fields - but I do like the texture of this cookie. I don't know why people are saying they taste funny - they taste like whats in them - oatmeal choc chip cookies! I recommend baking them 12 minutes (although I am high altitude) and letting them cool for at least 5 minutes on the pan before removing them. I took my first batch out after 10 minutes and the cookies still had a big raw looking mound in the middle. After tasting both once they cooled I thought the texture and flavor was much better when cooked 12 min.

YUM YUM YUM!!!! Everyone is right, DO NOT overbake! I thought about what this meant, and I concluded it means it's alright to underbake. You may think they are not done but do not despair, an underbaked cookie is scrumptious!

I made these one time and was hooked!!! Better than store bought! This recipe is great for smaller batches of cookies. The other recipe for Mrs.Field's Cookie II is great for a bigger batch. Both recipes are winners!!!.

I make cookies very similar to this recipe.They are always a huge hit. Try them with macadamia nuts as well. One thing I do differently from this recipe is I only grind half the oatmeal and leave the rest whole. It makes for a nice hearty cookie. My husband, who is a chef, loves these.

Perfect chocolate chip cookie! Same as "Mrs Fields Cookie Recipe II" except this one is a single batch vs. a double in II. I use pecans instead of walnuts, and bake 12 minutes.

YUM!!! This is a great chocolate cookie recipe. Grinding the oats is KEY. They will not be the same if you don't.
