These cookies are stuffed with chocolate chips, chocolate chunks, oat flour and pecans. You may add other flavors by changing or adding nuts or other ingredients. You can make a big batch or small batch and watch them disappear.

My sister Joyce loves this cookie and puts in a request for them when she comes to visit. I make a large batch at Christmas for gifts for the family. I like to make large size cookies, using golf ball sizes of dough! Yes, I am from Texas and we like being generous with size!

Mrs. Field's Cookie recipe is rumored to cost $250.00 to get the ingredients to make these cookies. The lady buying the recipe thought they meant $2.50 until she received her charge card bill!

  • You can make cookies into golf ball size for a large cookie, you will need to bake longer.

  • Mix and match the baking chips, choose flavors you like, peanut butter, white chocolate.
  • Use your favorite nut instead of pecans.
  • I use a small scoop to dip cookies instead of rolling into balls, for large cookies.
  • Store in tins or zip lock bags; the one in bags are softer cookies.
