Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

This was my first taste of cookie lore from the internet (before the web existed), back when Mrs. Fields was supposed to be the one charging $250 for the cookie recipe. I have no idea whether Mrs. Fields ever made cookies like these, but I sure have made a lot of them. Actual yield is usually 12 dozen. >8^)

CHOC-CHIP-1 - Chocolate chip cookies like Mrs. Fields makes These cookies are a combination of oatmeal and chocolate chip. They are very rich, but very tasty. The recipe was obtained from a friend of a friend, who supposedly paid a large amount of money for it. However, the cookies do not taste exactly the same as the name brand.
