They are so convenient to make and just as delicious as the mall option!
Tips for PERFECT Mrs. Fields White Chocolate Chip Cookies:
Use Parchment Paper so Cookies don’t stick
Three kitchen items make these cookies come together really fast. I actually use these items in nearly every cookie recipe I make, so they’re quite versatile. First, I line my cookie sheets with a piece of parchment paper. They’re sold in sizes that fit a 12×16 cookie sheet perfectly and enable to cookies to bake well without sticking- and no mess from spraying oil on the cookie sheets!
Even Mixing with a Stand Mixer
The second item is a KitchenAid mixer. I love mine! I have a Bosch as well but I find I use my KitchenAid for cookies. There is a cookie paddle that comes with every mixer that you attach to the top of the mixer. They’re easy to use and help you mix the ingredients uniformly. I also use the metal whisk attachment in this recipe to make the frosting. It whips it up super fast! Add this to your wish list because it’s one of my all-time used small appliances ever!
Identical Cookies using a Cookie Scoop
The third item is a cookie scoop! Years and years ago I used to use 2 spoons to measure and scrape cookie dough onto the pans. It wasn’t a perfect process and I often ended up with oblong cookies in various sizes. A friend of mine brought cookies to a party and I noticed each and every one of her cookies looked PERFECT. Her secret? A cookie scoop! They come in three sizes- 1/2 tablespoon, 1.5 tablespoon and 3 tablespoon scoops. I used the large and middle size- 3 tablespoon and 1.5 tablespoon for these cookies. (Although when I’m serving a large crowd, I use the small cookie scoop. People love having a smaller cookie, especially at an event with several other desserts.

How to make Copycat Mrs. Field’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
Get started by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F. Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat, set aside.
Next, in a small bowl, combine and mix the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
Then, in a separate larger bowl, mix together the sugar, brown sugar, melted butter and eggs, until completely combined. Then add in the vanilla extract and mix again.
Now, add the dry flour mixture to the wet ingredients and stir to combine. Now, fold in the white chocolate chips and mix until just combined.
Proceed to drop cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet using a cookie scoop. If you want small cookies, use a medium, 1.5 TBSP cookie scoop. If you want the cookies large, use a large 3 TBSP scoop.
Next, place the cookies in the preheated oven and bake. For large cookies bake for 12-14 minutes, the smaller cookies will take 9-11 minutes.
Be sure to leave the cookies on the baking sheet for 5 minutes after removing from the oven, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Serve cookies slightly warm and enjoy!

Why are my cookies flat?
If your cookies are flat there are a couple solutions. First, make sure you didn’t melt your butter instead of softening it. If that’s the culprit, then place your bowl of cookie dough in the freezer for 30 minutes. Second, try adding a few tablespoons of flour to the batter and see if that is enough to help the shape of your cookies.
How Long to Let Cookies Cool
Cookies are best left to cool on the baking sheet they’re cooked on for 3-4 minutes, then you can transfer them to a cooling rack to cool further. This way, they don’t fall apart as cookies are pretty soft still when they’re pulled out of the oven. After a couple minutes on a cooling rack, cooking are usually cool enough to eat! Warm cookies are the best!
How long are these cookies good for?
These cookies can be kept stored in an airtight container for up to 3-5 days. To keep the cookies nice and chewy I recommend keeping them stored in the fridge
HOW DO YOU SOFTEN BUTTER?
I like to soften butter by using the defrost function on my microwave. If you need the full 1/2 cup cube of butter, you can leave it in the paper wrapper, otherwise, place the amount of butter you need in a glass or porcelain bowl. I use the lowest defrost setting on my microwave and just let it run for 20 seconds. Check the butter and see how soft it is by pressing it with a rubber scraper. If it is still not soft to the touch, meaning it doesn’t indent when you press into it, let it warm for another 5-10 seconds. Watch it closely! Butter softens very quickly.

Can you use pastry flour to make these cookies? Would the measurements be the same?
We have not tried or tested this recipe with pastry flour so we honestly can’t say for certain. Sorry 🙁

Can’t wait to make it! Which butter do you use when making cookies, unsalted or salted butter?
I always use salted butter! I like salt, LOL!
