Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
We cut down the fat and sugar from the original recipe that we found somewhere years ago. Over the years we have made little changes and have finally arrived at our own "Jackson variation of Mrs. Field's." Margarine works ok in this recipe, but the cookies just don't taste as good!
