Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies

I make half a batch, 48 cookies.  I also omit the candy bar and the nuts.  These are the best cookies that I have ever made.  This is the exact recipe from my grandmother who would be 110 years old if she were still alive.  

Makes 96 Cookies

2 cups butter
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 cups sugar
5 cups blended oatmeal
24 ounces chocolate chips
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 (8 ounce) Hershey Bars (grated)
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups chopped nuts (your choice)

  1. Measure oatmeal and blend in a blender to a fine powder.
  2. Cream the butter and both sugars.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla.
  4. Mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder and soda.
  5. Add chocolate chips, grated Hershey Bar and nuts.
  6. Roll into 1 inch balls and place 2-inches apart on a cookie sheet.
