Have you heard about the Neiman Marcus cookie recipe legend? Read about it here. Even though it's completely false, the cookie recipe is delicious. Each bite is full of chocolatey-oat deliciousness!
Neiman Marcus Cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
2 cups blended oatmeal (measure 2 cups oatmeal and blend in blender to a fine powder)
½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
12 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
4 oz. milk chocolate Hershey bar (grated) (I used milk chocolate chips and "grated" them with a few pulses in the blender)
1 ½ cups chopped nuts (your choice)
Cream the butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla; mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and soda. Add chocolate chips, Hershey bar and nuts. Roll into balls and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
Notes: The cookie dough was a little too thick, so I decreased the oats from 2 1/2 cups to 2 cups. If you can't control yourself (like me), only make 1 dozen cookies at a time. Freeze the remaining dough in balls. They cook up beautifully from frozen balls. And even Jesse can cook frozen balls of dough for a FHE treat!
