$250 Cookies

Hands down, one of the best cookie recipes ever!  I use this recipe all the time and people love it.  Sometimes I leave out the Hershey bar and nuts and add in Heath crunch bar pieces or M&M's instead.  Other times, I don't ground up the oatmeal.  I just put it in whole.  Any way you dish it, people will love it.  It really is a recipe that is universally loved!

$250 Cookies

1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups flour
2 1/2 cups blended oatmeal (blended oatmeal: measure and blend in a blender to a fine powder)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
12-ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 ounces of Hershey chocolate bars broken into chunks
1 1/2 cup nuts, chopped

Cream butter and both sugars.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and soda.  Add chips, candy bar, and nuts.  Refrigerate for one half hour.  Roll into balls and place 2 inches apart on cookies sheet.  Bake for 6-10 minutes at 375 degrees.  Makes 56 cookies.

Oh My!! I used to make these all the time--they were one of our favorite cookies that I'd take to like, everything! I haven't seen the recipe in a while (literally, I may have lost it) so I'm thrilled that you've put it on here! Thank you!!!

These are fabulous cookies. We call them Nieman-Marcus Cookies. I don't care what you call them as long as I have some to eat.

This recipe was sent to me by a friend through email. There was a funny story behind it too. I just haven't found the time to make them. I have no excuses now that I have seen yours.
