I don't know what it is about this cookie recipe, but it is the only one that I make now for my family. David loves it when I make these.....he really just eats the dough. It is that Neiman Marcus recipe that many of you have...or maybe you don't. I would love to know how many of you out there really make this recipe. After I make the cookies, we do something different with them. We freeze them in little sandwich bags....three or four per bag. David, the girls, and I (on occasion of course) eat these cookies but frozen. There is something wonderful about these cookies, when you make them and take them out of the oven slightly undercooked and then freeze them. We wait like a minute or two after they are out of the freezer and then eat them! This recipe reminds me of great times with my family. These cookies bring out the best of my husband and my girls! For those of you that don't have the recipe, here it is. Let me know what you think:
1 C. white sugar 1 t. baking powder
1 C. brown sugar 1 t. baking soda
1 C. soft butter ½ t. salt
2 eggs 2 C. flour
1 T. vanilla 2 C. chocolate chips
2 ½ C. whole oats
Heat oven to 375. Cream sugars and butter. Add one egg at a time. When blended, add vanilla. In blender, mix oats and baking powder, soda and salt until a fine powder consistency. Mix in mixer and then add flour, one cup at a time. Blend in chocolate chips. Bake 8-10 minutes on cookie sheet. Enjoy!!!!

Can I just say THANK YOU! You saved an otherwise disastrous dinner! Katie had been wanting to try some new recipes out of a children's recipe book from the library and needless to say it was awful! Salmon Fishpatties and fries with a special sauce. Not! Not a do over!
So I pulled up your recipe and made your cookies!
YUMMO! A total hit! Thank you for saving our FHE! I love you sis!
The kids said that the cookies are 100% a "do over"!
