Big Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies

P2122042

 

A friend of mine at the gym said she was going to make Mrs Fields chocolate chip cookies. She mentioned that a friend use to work at Mrs Fields and gave her the recipe. I’m thinking that this is just the same recipe that has been going around for years. I would think that now days any cookies that are baked at a Mrs Fields comes from a mix, not made from scratch. My friend also claimed that these cookies need to be mixed by hand with a wooden spoon because the secret to making them is to not over mix them. Well, I wasn’t about to mix these up with a spoon seeing that they call for 1 pound of butter and 6 cups of flour. (Maybe I should have, it would have been an awesome workout!) It was really a workout for my Bosch mixer! I had to mix the last 2 cups of chocolate chips in by hand!

These are by far one of the best batches of cookies I’ve made in a while! It makes a hug batch so it’s great if you want to bake some and put the rest of the dough in the fridge. You can also drop them onto a cookie sheet and freeze, then just pop them into a ziplock back and put in the freezer for fresh cookies anytime!

Big Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 lb of butter, room temperature

2 cups brown sugar

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 tablespoons vanilla

3 eggs

1 1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoon soda

6 cups flour

6 cups chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk dry ingredients in a bowl.  Beat butter and sugars for 3 minutes. Add vanilla and eggs. Change beaters in the mixer to a dough hook and add the flour mixture. Add the chocolate chips. I had to finish mixing the chips in with a wooden spoon. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove to cookie racks to cool.

I have a Mrs. Fields Chocolate Chip Coookie Recipe from the Top Secret Recipes book, and it's a very good recipe. The amounts are different though. I might try yours and see if it makes a difference.
