Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

27 Apr

I know I make chocolate chip cookies quite often on this blog. It’s just so simple, a crowd pleaser. This one is definitely one of my favorites. The cookies are soft, plump yet airy, just the right amount of sweetness and a little nutty from the ground oatmeal. It’s quite perfect, actually.


I have been using this “top secret”(but not really) recipe for about 8 years now. It never fails me. Sometimes, I eliminate the nuts, add in some raisins, whatever. They turn out good any way.


So there is some history to this recipe. These cookies are actually called the Neiman Marcus cookie. There is a whole back story/legend behind this special recipe (fine it here). I won’t get into it. You be the judge. I will just share the recipe.

Again, recipe from here.


2 cups butter

4 cups flour

2 tsp. baking soda

2 cups granulated sugar

2 cups brown sugar

5 cups blended oatmeal (measure oatmeal and blend in blender to a fine powder)

24 oz. chocolate chips

1 tsp. salt

1 8 oz. Hershey bar (grated)

4 eggs

2 tsp. baking powder 3 cups chopped nuts (your choice)

2 tsp. vanilla


Cream the butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla; mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and soda. Add chocolate chips, Hershey bar and nuts. Roll into balls and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet..Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes 112 cookies.
