Mrs. Field’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Copycat Recipe

Mey's husband Richard loves cookies.  Since to love to bake I went to Mey's house and made a batch of these.

Mey's grandson visits every weekend and I told him to grab a few of the cookies. He loved them and said he now has 2 Grandmas! LOL

1 cup unsalted butter, softened 2 sticks
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar packed
2 large eggs
2 1/2 tsp. real vanilla extract no imitation vanilla flavoring
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 
3/4 tsp.  kosher salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 12-oz. bags semi-sweet chocolate chips (or 18-oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips)

Preheat oven to 350°.
In a large mixing bowl, mix the butter, sugars, eggs, vanilla, salt, baking powder and baking soda with an electric mixer until smooth.
Stir in flour and chocolate chips till well combined.
Shape dough * with hands into golf ball-sized dough balls and place a couple inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for  13 minutes or until edges are light brown. 

I like to chill the dough for about an hour.


  1. It's always nice to have two loving Grandma's. Especially if the make cookies. If I make these I would fight Larry in eating them. It's his favorite. With diabetes I best not make them. They look so good.

    1. I sure don't need cookies Dottie! I've gained so much weight but I had to sample a few just to make sure they were ok- LOL.

  2. I missed this one. These cookies look so good. I would eat all of them at once. So cute how Mey's Grandson now has "2 Grandmas " Linda, you are the best baker. Your cookies always come out so even and so perfect. When I do bake, which is very seldom, mine are never even or perfect. I used to always chill my dough before I baked them. What did I do wrong????????

    1. I usually use a cookie scoop but I couldn't add the dough to the fridge this time. Mey's fridge was full. I used a teaspoon and onto to air bake cookie sheets they went.

      I brought my cookie sheets with me- Mey doesn't bake much and I'm use to them- such a creature of habit huh?

  3. Hey. thanks for you suggestion. I will use a teaspoon next time. Yeppo, you are a creature of habit.
