Mrs. Fields Copycat Cookies

These Copycat Mrs. Fields Cookies were a huge hit when I made them a few weeks ago for the Miami Dolphins Locker Room. I think I will make them again this week for my house guests. For that matter, I think I will make a bunch so that I can freeze some for all the other people I have visiting in the next 2 months, more for the football team, some for my friendly neighbors, and a couple for my friend Christy, The Girl Who Ate Everything, who asked for the recipe.

What's better than getting fresh homemade cookies on a plate? Getting the cookies AND the Mrs. Fields Cookie Copycat Recipe. Christy my friend, make room for cookies cause here they come!! ;)

On another note, Dan's sister and her family were here visiting last week. We had so much fun with them and their kiddos. The kids helped me cook and bake every chance they got, we made orange and teal necklaces for Dan and the Miami Dolphins Game, we toured private jets and helicopters, ate at a crab house a hibachi grill and a taco joint, picked shells at the beach, went to the children's museum, spent lots of time in the pool, and shared many laughs. How lucky we are to have them in our lives. We wish they lived closer...Hated to see them leave:(
They did get Mrs. Fields Copycat Cookies for the plane ride home though:)
