Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I miss Mrs Fields’ cookies! Those chewy, moist, soft baked gooey cookies are to die for! No, I don’t work for them. I’m only responsible for contributing to their profit margin. Sadly, they are not available here anymore. I tried buying off the shelves cookies (labelled soft and chewy) but they are just not the same. When it comes to cookies, I’m that particular. I don’t believe in wasting calories on sub-par food. So when I came across this recipe, I was very eager to try it out. They are not 100% Mrs Fields’-like, but equally chewy and moist. My brother said they tasted like subway cookies, so I guess that was a compliment?? Up till today, I’ve already baked 3 batches of these heaven-on-a-bite cookies. 😀

Using a large spoon or ice-cream scoop, scoop the mixture and drop it on the baking tray lined with baking sheet. Arrange them about 2 inches apart as they will spread out during baking.

Depending on the size of your cookies, bake for exactly 9 – 11 minutes (any longer will result in dried out cookies). Remove from the oven and let cool slightly on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

 

See how large and flat they become?
