Neiman-Marcus Cookies

with my changes

I realize that most of you may have this recipe already. But I am going to post it anyway for those that don't.

1 cube butter, softened to room temperature
1/2 tsp soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 oz of Hershey bar, grated (1 regular Hershey bar)
1 cup flour
1 1/4 cup oatmeal, blended
6 oz mini chocolate chips OR for chocolate chunk cookies: break up more Hershey bars into little pieces

Blend oatmeal (not quick oats) to a fine powder in a blender. (I usually blend a lot and then keep it in a tightly sealed container. I use it for meatloaf and other recipes as well.) Measure out as much as you need for recipe. Tip: Sometimes I only measure out 1 cup and see how the dough mixes up before I add the additional 1/4 cup. If it dry, I leave it out. If it is a little too sticky, I add the 1/4 cup.

In a bowl, cream butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Add oatmeal, flour, salt, baking powder, and soda. Mix well. Stir in grated Hershey bar, mini chocolate chips or Hershey bar pieces. Roll into balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes. Makes about 2 dozen+ depending on size of your dough balls.

These are so good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and then drizzled with a little bit of caramel and/or chocolate syrup. A super simple, yummy dessert.
