Copycat recipe #2 – Mrs. Fields Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

Mrs. Fields Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

I had so much fun with my first copycat recipe Homemade Strawberry NutriGrain Bars, that I decided to try another. 🙂

This time, I chose Mrs. Fields Cinnamon Sugar Cookies. I don’t know about you, but every time I go to the mall, the first thing I seem to smell when I walk through the entrance doors are the fresh-baked cookies from the Mrs. Fields cookie stand. I love their cinnamon sugar cookies, so I was very pleased when I came across this copycat recipe.

This recipe turned out to be remarkably close in taste to the cookies sold at the cookie stand. The recipe is easy to follow, and everyone probably has all the ingredients already stocked in their pantry. The only thing I did differently, was to chill the dough for about 20 minutes before rolling it into balls. After mixing all the ingredients together, I found the dough to be really soft and almost impossible to roll into balls. Chilling the dough definitely helped make the whole rolling process go a lot smoother. 🙂


Mrs. Fields Cinnamon Sugar Cookies (copycat recipe)

3 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup salted butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon for topping. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, soda and salt. Mix well with wire whisk and set aside.

In a large bowl, blend sugars with an electric mixer set at medium speed. Add the butter, and mix to form a grainy paste. Scrape sidesof bowl, then add the eggs and vanilla extract. Mix at medium speed until light and fluffy.

Add the flour mixture and blend at low speed just until combined. Do not over mix. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and roll each ball in cinnamon-sugar topping.

Place onto ungreased cookie sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Immediately transfer cookies with a spatula to a cool, flat surface.

Yield: 3 dozen

  3. I love Mrs. Fields! These look so yummy!!

  4. Yummy yum yum! I love cookies, these look so good!

  5. These certainly sound terrific and definitely have me craving them so like now! Nicely done!

  6. Chilling the dough will definitely help create thicker, chewier cookies, that hold their shape better, more like those irresistible cookies at the Mall!

    Mrs. Fields is the only woman I know who suggests baking cookies at 300 degrees, but it’s hard to argue with success.

    These are on my must try list.


  7. These look incredibly delish! I must try these soon ;o)
