Here's the first recipe I created for the Top Secret Recipes books back in 1987. Inspired by a bogus chain-letter cookie recipe, this is my version of the delicious Mrs. Fields cookies that are crispy around the edge and chewy in the middle. Be careful not to cook these too long. I know it becomes tempting to keep cooking these—they don't seem to be done after 10 minutes—but they will continue to cook for awhile after you take them out of the oven, and when cool, will be chewy in the middle.

Lately, I've been trying to make cookies from scratch and the first ones I've made came out too puffy and soft (this was the toll house recipe). I like my cookies crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside and a bit more flat. Then, I made this recipe and oh my goodness, best cookies ever! Exactly how I like my cookies! These cookies came out so well I can't wait to share them with my family! I do reccommend to chill the dough before baking them just to make the process easier.
