Well I finally decided to give it a try, and test it out for myself!
The recipe makes 112 cookies, and considering I shouldn’t have been eating them in the first place, I decided to cut the recipe in half. Here is what I did:
Neiman Marcus Cookies
1 cup butter
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups blended oatmeal (measure oatmeal and blend in a blender to a fine powder)
12 ounces chocolate chips
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 -8 ounce Hershey Bar (I only had a 1/5 oz. bar, so added more chocolate chips)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts (your choice, I like pecans and walnuts)
- Cream the butter and both sugars
- Add eggs and vanilla
- Mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and baking soda
- Add chocolate chips, Hershey bar and nuts
- Use an ice cream scoop to ball dough onto cooking sheet (place two inches apart on a cookie sheet)
- Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees.
Consensus? It was a little more involved than a standard chocolate chip cookie and the end result wasn’t really worth it to me. I may be a chocolate chip cookie purist, but the blended oats and grated chocolate bar didn’t really bring anything extra spectacular to the table for me. If you love a soft cookie with some texture, this is for you… but if you are more into chewy/crispy cookies, these aren’t the ones for you.
