In a previous review, the reviewer stated that Mrs. Fields recommends baking times that are too long. This isn't true. She uses lower oven temps in her recipes, and this calls for longer baking times. (The lower temperatures keep the cookies from burning easily.) Just wanted to pass this info on. Have fun baking cookies! :)
Divided into the sections of:
and special treats, it makes it easy to locate a cookie that suits your mood, especially because there are color photographs of every cookie at the top of every recipe.
Instructions are simple and even include photographs to illustrate certain steps, such as rolling cookies or dipping in chocolate, so that all is clearly understood.
All recipes are printed on glossy paper--easy wiping.
You will find all variations of cookies, such as basic sugar cookies, snowy white chocolate crescents, chocolate sandwich cookies, fruit fille jewels, custard filled cookies, triple layer lemon bars, Caramel filled brownies, and even cakes and pies.
Will you find a chocolate chip cookie recipe? You betcha...but don't expect to replace your trips to the Mrs field's counter. Mrs. Fields noted herself that this is simply a collection of recipes she loves but not those of her store. To get the taste of her cookies, you gotta make flour from grinding oatmeal to a powder which won't be found herein.
But if copycat taste of her brand isn't your goal but, instead, a truly solid collection of recipes I have personally tested for years with flawless results...I think you will find it here. It is my go-to book for cookie batches and truly a "keeper".
Negatives: some recipes are common and for a small collection, that may or may not be appreciated. No nutritional info.Read more ›
Another nice thing about her cookies is men love them and so will women. But having sons and a husband who LOVE great tasting non frilly cookies her cookies are the ONLY ones they have given 5 STARS too. That says ALOT!
Follow the recipes EXACTLY and you can't go wrong.
I have baked many batches of cookies and I was really taken back by how much butter the recipes was calling for. I followed the book to the tee. I even tested and made sure the oven was the perfect temperature, and used a scooper that makes perfect tablespoon sized balls. and all I got was flat ugly cookies. I made a second batch immediately afterwards thinking I might of overmixed. Same results!
I suspecting the amount of butter is the cause of the flat cookies. I definalty think the recipes need adjustments.
I'm sorry to say that I really trusted the recipes because of the name on the book.
Duh! why would a million dollar francise sell the very recipes that makes the real dough.
