Neiman Marcus Cookies




I'm not sure of the validity of the email, but the urban legend is that this recipe was purchased by a woman from Neiman's for $250. She thought the price was $2.50, so in an effort to "get back" at Neiman's, she has shared the recipe with everyone she knows. The email has been in circulation for years, but I decided to make the cookies for a Super Bowl party later today. I made them today and they are very yummy. I broke a couple so I had to sample those! The pups were good "watch-dogs" as I baked today.

NEIMAN-MARCUS COOKIES (Recipe may be halved)

2 cups butter
24 oz. chocolate chips
4 cups flour
2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 cups sugar
1 8 oz. Hershey Bar (grated)
5 cups blended oatmeal
4 eggs
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups chopped nuts (your choice, optional)
Measure oatmeal, and blend in a blender to a fine powder. 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 112 cookies.
