Neiman-Marcus Cookies

Back in college, my roommates made these awesome cookies that are called the Neiman-Marcus cookie. Supposedly, a woman and her daughter were eating in the Neiman-Marcus restaurant and she asked the chef for his cookie recipe. She was shocked to later receive a bill for $250 for the recipe so she decided to give the recipe to everyone she knew.

While this story is not true (checkout Snopes), the cookies are awesome!


1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
2 1/2 cups oatmeal
4 oz of grated Hershey's chocolate bar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
12 oz of chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups of chopped nuts (optional)

Mix butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla. Separately combine flour, oatmeal, baking powder, baking soda. Mix both sets of ingredients and add chocolate bar and nuts.

Bake at 375 for ten minutes.

These are great cookies. I'm a big fan of the Hersey's chocolate in cookies.
