Been meaning to bake these since Monday .
Blame it on the weather . I just love winter . At least I could cover up my jiggly stomach tsk !
Hey ! It's the season to be FAT and jolly anyway hahaha
And yet another Mrs Fields recipe , except for the cookie name and some added variations -her recipe has the same main ingredients in almost all of her cookie recipe ^o^". As long as you reduced the sugar , add more flour , in my opinion , 'tis the best cookie recipe you'll bake again and again :D
