So, I know a girl whose uncle's cousin's wife's daughter's teacher's daughter's next door neighbor went to Neiman Marcus and asked for the cookie recipe and was charged 250.00 for it. This is supposedly the recipe for their famous cookies. I don't really have a connection to the folks that have claimed this story, but I do know that these cookies are ridiculously delicious. After devouring two of these tasty little morsels, one of my kids told me that he loved me more than all the envelopes in the world. Wow! Mind blown. Do you know how many envelopes there are in the world? That is a lot of love just for making cookies! Now, imagine your friends and family loving you more than all the envelopes in the world. It can happen, and you will thank me for that. This recipe is a keeper!
makes two dozen
1/2 c butter
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c packed brown sugar
1/2 t vanilla
1 c flour
1 1/4 c oats
1/4 t salt
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 oz. milk chocolate bar, grated
3/4 c chopped walnuts or pecans (Optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Measure oats and place them in a blender or food processor until it is a fine powder. Set aside.
In a mixer bowl, cream the butter and sugars on medium speed for 3-4 minutes or until the mixture is fluffy and lighter in color. Add the egg. Mix well. Add the vanilla. Mix.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, oats, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Stir with a whisk to get it well-combined.
Add the flour mixture to the mixer bowl and mix well. Pour in the chocolate chips, grated chocolate, and nuts (if using). Mix to incorporate.
Scoop onto cookie sheets using a cookie scoop, ice cream scoop, or your hands- with each ball of dough being 3-4 tablespoons.
Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
Devour. With a nice, cold glass of milk. Then imagine the love from your family taller than a stack of all the world's envelopes.
