Another Great Cookie
Hello, It's time for the Secret Recipe Club for the month of October. My secret this month was with Susan at permanent posies.
Susan is one busy woman, Susan cooks along with a lot more. She is a wife to her sweetheart from College, she is a mom and a grammie! I introduce you to Susan.
I had a hard time deciding on what to make from her blog, she has alot. But being the Cookie Lover that I am I decided on Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies. I have seen this recipe around for a long time. AKA as the $250.00 cookie. So I had to do a little research on them and the story goes that a lady claims that during a lunch at a Neiman Marcus store, she asked the waiter if she could purchase the recipe for the wonderful cookie she just had, he said yes for two-fifty. So she said ok, only to be somewhat surprised when her bill arrived later that month with a $250.00 charge plus her meal for the day. Not able to get her money back she started a chain e-mail sending to everyone she knew. At least this way she could get even, and share the recipe with all who wanted it. According to the internet the Neiman Marcus Cookbook says this is a urban legend. Well, for me I say thank you to Susan for posting this recipe and it's a keeper for me. A great cookie. Happy Baking Andi
The orginal ingredients for this cookie is double of what is listed below. I think to make this one would need a industrial mixer and I was not serving the US Army today. My changes are below. I made a good size cookie and got 40 of them.
Neiman Marcus Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cups butter
1 cups sugar
1 cups brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 1/2 cups of quick cooking oatmeal
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
12 ounce package of chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts
3 (1.55) ounce Hershey's Chocolate bar (grated)
Cream the butter and sugars, then add the eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl add the flour, oats, salt, baking powder and the baking soda. Whisk this together then add to the batter in mixing bowl. Stir in the chips and grated chocolate and the nuts.
Bake at 350 degrees and bake according to the size cookie you make. I used a cookie scoop that holds almost 2 tbsp of dough and baked for about 11 minutes.
