Mrs Fields Best Cookie Book

Updated on March 11, 2018

Cookies and More

Mrs Fields has the best recipes for COOKIES! I got this cookbook as a gift over 20 years ago. It was one of those gifts that was a hint, hint to learn to bake cookies for the hubby to keep him sweetened up. I remember when I unwrapped it; everyone was all around me telling which ones to make first. It was kinda funny. If I remember right I was supposed to make ones with chocolate chips, nuts, raisins. Of course I chimed in with chocolate mint to say something different. To be honest I made one with raisins first.

About The Cookie Book

This cookbook has five sections for easy searching for the kind of cookie you want to bake. The sections are drop, filled, fancy, bar and special treats. There are 130 recipes total in this book. Lots to choose from. The recipes are super easy to follow with a picture of the cookies you are making next to it. It even has some extra how-to photo's with some of the recipes. I really like the ease and simple recipes that this cookie book has to offer. I'm sure glad Mrs Fields shared her prize winning recipes in this book.

More Than Just Cookies

As I sit here and re-look at the special treats sections which is the last section of the book; I see a recipe for Creamy Mocha Ice Cream Shake. Now doesn't that sound good for dunking a cookie in. I know that cookies are best dunked in milk but its fun to try something different. It's nice that there are other shared dessert recipes other than cookies in this cookbook.

Even after so many years of owning this cookbook, I still love to look through it to find a cookie recipe I haven't tried yet. As the saying goes oldies are always goodies!

      Of all the dessert cookbooks out there, 'cookies' has to be my favorite. This one looks like a really good one! A cookie recipe for every taste! My favorite is 'chocolate' with nuts. :) Thanks for sharing this cookbook on the 'Books on Squidoo' Pinterest board.
