Widely recognized in the field of sweet treatery, Mrs. Fields employs a host of baking buffs to build handheld sweets and plus-size cookie cakes. Shoppers fill a tin or platter with eight different stripes of cookies, customizing collections with any combination of flavors, from simple cinnamon-sugar concoctions to decadent white-chunk-macadamia, semisweet-chocolate-chip, and oatmeal, raisin, and walnut options. The delectable desserts may be placed inside a brightly colored tin for a romantic Valentine’s gift or piled high on a platter for easily accessed food-fight ammunition.
Mrs. Fields cookie artists also shape sweet circular messages for family and friends with their selection of 16-inch cookie cakes. Made from real butter, whole eggs, and pure vanilla, the delicious and doughy circular treat can also be shaped in a heart and adorned with a pre-selected message or personalized phrase, inside joke, or bank-account password.
Debbi Fields opened her first cookie shop in 1977, launching what would soon become a household name. Today, Mrs. Fields bakers from all over the world carry on her legacy, whipping up her signature semisweet chocolate-chip cookies with the same top-secret recipe that Mrs. Fields invented. They carefully fold real butter, whole eggs, and pure vanilla into delicate, buttery batters to create soft, chewy cookies that fill nearby nostrils with irresistibly sweet aromas. Using these same ingredients and recipes, they also bake up cookie cakes that can be decorated with colorful icing and personalized messages such as birthday wishes, inside jokes, or bank-account passwords. When they’re not handcrafting milk-chocolate-chip, cinnamon-sugar, and peanut-butter cookie batters into mini, regular, or cake-size cookies, these bakers are busy making gourmet brownies with pecans and walnuts.
