Contraband Chocolate Cookies

Have you ever heard the story of the Mrs. “F” cookie recipe? Somehow the story goes that a woman was in Neiman Marcus or some fancy store and she asked for the recipe to the cookies she was eating in their cafe. The waiter told her it was seven fifty so she said to put it on her card and she got the bill and it was $750! For revenge she gave out the recipe to all her friends. I don’t know if this is an urban legend or not but I always loved that story so I will share the recipe here with you. My Mrs. F cookie recipe is one of my favorites, with double the chocolate and also oatmeal ground to almost a flour like texture, which really adds a great flavor. So if you want to change up your typical chocolate chip cookie recipe you have to give this a try!

Mrs. Fields Cookies

Cream: 1/2 c butter, 1/2 c sugar, 1/2 c brown sugar. Add 1 egg. Add 1/2 tsp vanilla

Take 1 1/4 c of oatmeal and blend in blender till it is powder. Set aside.

Take a 2-3 ounce chocolate bar and grate in blender or chop finely, set aside.

Mix oatmeal powder with 1 c flour, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp baking soda.

Combine all ingredients except chocolate and mix well.

Add 6oz of chocolate chips (I prefer Ghirardelli) and your grated chocolate and mix by hand.

Make into golf ball sized cookies and space evenly on baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 6 minutes. Yum!
