$250 goodness

So, the story goes... a lady was finishing her lunch at Neiman Marcus with some chocolate chip cookies. She asked the waiter if she could get the recipe. He said yes and that they charge "two-fifty" for it. Later should found she was charged $250.00 not the $2.50 she expected.

The story then goes that she vowed in vengence "to give everyone she possibly could the recipe."

Whether the story is true or not, I don't know. However, I can vouch that the cookies are truly delish.

There are two key ingredients in the cookie, 1) ground oatmeal and 2) chocolate shavings

Mo really liked using the food processor to grind the oatmeal (and the chocolate as I was too lazy to shave chocolate with a grater).

Like her big sister, she is getting really good at handling the mixer on her own -- and, is quite proud of the ability to do so.

Mo also loved using the scooper to make the cookies, though they were a lot less exact and uniform with her at the dough-distributing helm.

I also caught her more than once eating cookie dough. I myself don't eat it, as the mere thought of raw eggs grosses me out. But alas, I could not convince her this was yucky.

And finally, the "can I have one more puh-lease" face.

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 C. softened butter
1 C. sugar
1 C. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 C. flour
2-1/2 C. blended oatmeal
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 bag chocolate chips (12 oz)
1 (8 oz.) Hershey bar grated (I used 1 C. of chocolate chips and food processed them)

Blend oatmeal to a fine powder. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. In a separate large bowl cream butter and sugars together. Add egg and vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients. Bake 12 minutes at 375 degrees turning once half way through.
