Neiman-Marcus Cookies

I received this recipe recently in an email. It was an interesting story about a woman who asked to purchase the recipe, and did so believing she was paying $2.50 for it. When she found out it was actually $250.00, she tried to get her money back, and the company refused. She then emailed the recipe to as many people as she could to "get back at them" for charging her so much. As with most emails, I have no idea if this is a true story, or if this recipe actually comes from Neiman-Marcus. Either way, they sounded delicious, so I decided to try them. I cut the recipe in half and ended up with about 6 dozen small cookies, using my small cookie scoop. They really are as good as they sound!

Neiman-Marcus Cookies

2 cups butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
5 cups oatmeal
4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
24 oz chocolate chips
1 8-oz Hershey bar (grated)
3 cups chopped nuts

Cream together butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla, mixing well. Meanwhile, place oatmeal in a blender and blend into a fine powder. Add blended oatmeal, flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda to sugar mixture. Mix well. Add chocolate chips, grated Hershey bar (Symphony is best), and nuts.

Roll into balls, place 2-inches apart on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 375°. Recipe makes 112 cookies.

Sure seems like it would be tasty but so many cookies :) Maybe when I have the day to myself!! oooh I guess you could make it up and freeze it huh!


I actually did make a full batch of these and freeze them, and they are awesome! Just take a couple out and let them sit for a few minutes, and they are tasty!
