Personal Notes:
I don't remember Mom ever making these but it was important to her to support her friend. On the top of the recipe there was a note that read:

"Somebody that Grace knows called the Mrs. Field's Cookie office and requested the recipe for their cookies. They asked her for her charge card which she gave them thinking the cost would be $15 or $25. It turned out to be $200. Therefore she is giving the recipe to anyone and everyone so someone can get use of her $200. Just keep passing it on. BTW, I've never had Mrs. Field's Cookies, but people say that this is the real thing."
