I don’t know Mrs. Fields personally, I just know she makes some good cookies! Mrs. Fields Cookies was founded by Debbi Fields, born 1956 in Park City, Utah. She and her husband started their business in the late 1970s, opening the first of many retail bakeries in Palo Alto, California. Mrs. Fields cookies are now commonly sold across the country in grocery stores and malls. Honestly though, they are not that hard to make at home, and anything homemade always tastes better!
1/4 Teaspoon salt
1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
2 Cups flour
2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
1 Cup creamy peanut butter
1 Cup softened butter
1 1/4 Cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 Cup dark brown sugar
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F.
In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix together with a wire whisk. In a large bowl, blend the sugars using an electric mixer at medium speed. Add butter and mix until it forms paste. Next, add the eggs, peanut butter, and vanilla extract. Mix at medium speed until the batter becomes light and fluffy. Add the flour mixture and change the mixer to low speed. Continue until just mixed.
Drop by tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet, 1 1/2 inches apart. With a fork, gently press a crisscross pattern on top of each cookies. Bake for 10-20 minutes until cookies are slightly brown along the edges. Transfer cookies from the pan immediately with a spatula and allow them to cool.
