White Chocolate Chunk Cookies – These White Chocolate Chunk Cookies are a Mrs. Field’s Copycat, but I think they are even better than the real thing!

Look, Ma! I’m posting a recipe for cookies! SHOCKER!

No sarcasm here… I really am shocked. I don’t really do cookies. I mean, yes, I DO make cookies, but not for the blog because they’re gone as soon as they come out of the oven.

Scratch that. Not all cookies are demolished as soon as they come out. These Banana Oats Chocolate Chip Cookies lasted a bit longer because some people don’t like oats. (I know! I was just as surprised!)

The issue, really, is that I have two very, very picky eaters. One of them is a 6-foot-3 male – aka, my husband. The other one is an almost 5-year old girl – aka, my daughter. These two drive me banaynays when it comes to eating-time. “Is that meat in there? Is that vegetables in there? Is that food on my plate??” …Sheeeesh! Gimme a break!

Then there’s me and Aleksandra, my about to be 2-year old. Our motto is, Open Mouth —> Insert.

BUT, when we make cookies, ain’t nobody complainin’! The skies open, the sun shines, and the two picky ones stuff their lovely faces with sweet-things.

These White Chocolate Chunk (Macadamia Nut) Cookies are a classic.

They’re exactly like every cookie I ate every day for 3 years when I worked right near a Mrs. Field’s Cookie-Shop. They are sweet, they are soft as pillows, and they are addictive.
Swear, I’m going to wait a few weeks before I make them again because I don’t wanna scare all the pool goers this summer.

I didn’t believe that I could ever recreate Mrs. Field’s cookies, but with the help of this world wide web, you can pretty much do anything you like!
Truthfully, I could not believe how good these were. Melt-in-your-mouth good. I wish I had more!

I think the secret to these cookies, or any cookies for that matter, is to remove them from the oven before they are done baking.

Also? If you look at them closely, you will see that quality white chocolate and butter are all you really need to make these cookies. And no nuts. I just didn’t include the nuts. It was a texture thing. Forgive me.

    I made these for my husband for Valentine’s Day. They’re fine and are what I’d expect from a homemade cookie, but they are no Mrs Fields, IMHO. The first batch I cooked for 9 minutes (were brown around the edges and on the tips of the tops), but the inside was raw. My husband spit out the first one I gave him, a blow to my baker self esteem. Twelve minutes is what I ended up needing. He and the kids say they’re good, but I am far more picky.

    Just made these with my son, 10 minutes of baking and they are probably the most perfect cookies I have ever made. Amazing. Thanks for the recipe!

    Yum!!! I love how these cookies look! Haha my whole family is “open mouth and insert” type, but my kids are the SLOWEST eater… But they won’t have any issue with these cookies though. They will be gone in seconds!

    My inner, ever-hungry, cookie monster approves of these cookies. I’ve already imagined hoarding a plateful and throwing daggers towards anyone who attempts to judge. :p
