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.





Mrs Field's Recipe

2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon soda
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 large egg
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup crispy rice chocolate bar, coarsely chopped

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a medium bowl combine flour, salt and soda. Mix well and set aside. In a large bowl blend sugars with an electric mixer  at medium speed. Add butter and mix to form a grainy paste. Scrape down sides of bowl and add egg and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add flour mixture, rice cereal and chocolate chunks. Blend at low speed just until blended. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Bake for 22 to 24 minutes. Immediately transfer cookies to a cool flat surface.
