Mrs. Fields' Original Cookies, Inc. bakes and sells specialty cookies, brownies, pretzels, and other baked goods. From one store started by Debbi and Randy Fields in 1977, the firm has expanded to over 1,500 stores named Mrs. Fields' Original Cookies, the Great American Cookie Company, the Original Cookie Company, Pretzel Time, Hot Sam, and Pretzelmaker. This is a true success story of an American homemaker and her husband who overcame numerous obstacles to create an international business. However, like many companies that began as family businesses, it reorganized under outside leadership and ownership. The firm's chocolate chip cookies were so popular that they became the subject of a modern urban legend in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Molasses Spice Cookies



MOLASSES SPICE COOKIES
Mrs. Filed's Recipe

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup molasses
3/4 cup shortening
1 egg
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 cup sugar for coating

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix sugar, molasses, shortening, and egg until smooth and well combined. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients together before adding to the sugar mixture. Stir until well combined and stiff. Roll the dough into one-inch balls and then roll each ball in the sugar coating twice. (This gives your chewy cookie a nice, sweet “crust.”) Place prepared dough balls on a prepared cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove cookies and allow to cool on a baking sheet.
