Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are incredibly soft and chewy. Full of oatmeal and plenty of chocolate chunks. They are baked to perfection with a slightly crispy edge and a soft center.

For years I didn’t think I liked oatmeal. Oatmeal on it’s own for breakfast or even in recipes like desserts.

Crazy, right?!

The older I’ve gotten the bigger fan I’ve become of such a great grain. I especially love them in these cookies!

Sometimes oatmeal can dry a recipe out when added, but these cookies are supremely moist, slightly chewy and just full of great texture.

Famous Neiman Marcus Cookie Recipe Worth $250

I’ll let you in on a secret.

I’ve had this recipe for years and can you guess what the name of them was originally called?

Neiman Marcus Cookies!

Oh yes! Do you remember when these were all the rage? There was a rumor going around that a lady who dined in their restaurant ordered one of these cookies.

She loved it so much she asked to get the recipe. The waiter politely told her they don’t give it out and she proceeded to tell him that she would pay for the recipe. He told her it would be two fifty. She said to add it to her bill.

She discovered it was $250 rather than the $2.50 she thought it was. The woman was so outraged that she decided to share the recipe with her friends and put it out on the internet.

Or so the story goes.

Come to find out it’s an absolute urban myth. A complete legend and false.

As I was doing my research I found that a few years ago Neiman Marcus unmasked it and posted the actual recipe for this famous cookie! That’s the way to clear up any rumors.

And here is another guess what?

It’s nothing like the recipe that was going around through your inbox like an old fashioned chain letter! All these years I was making this cookie I’m sharing down below and thought I was (kind of) real deal.

Even though their recipe looks superb, I’m a fan of this cookie even more. And don’t let all that texture fool you. This cookie is super tender, soft with slightly crispy edges. The way a perfect cookie should be. Here is how it all comes together.
