When it comes to homemade cookies, especially chocolate chip, it’s hard to go wrong…usually you just end up with variations of gooey goodness! The Neiman Marcus recipe for their original chocolate chip cookie is somewhat controversial – there are a number of versions floating around online. This version is said to be the original (and it’s one I’ve had for more than 25 years). Either way, the results are amazingly good cookies. You don’t have to bake them….you can always buy them online at Neiman Marcus’ website.
Measure oatmeal and then blend in a blender or food processor 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, shaved chocolate, nuts and stir until combined. Roll into balls and place two inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet or parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees.
