Neiman Marcus Cookies


1 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup white sugar

1 cup unsalted butter; softened or at room temperature

2 1/2 cups rolled oats

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 eggs

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips (eye ball it)

1 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat the oven to 375F and line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a standing mixer (with the whisk attachment) cream together the 2 sugars, butter, eggs and vanilla.

Once smooth, add in the oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt and either mix with a wooden spoon or change your stand mixer attachment to the flat beater attachment.

Note: for more “classic” Neiman Marcus cookies, blend the oats into a coarse powder in a food processor before mixing into the batter. I prefer the texture of the full oats.

With a wooden spoon, fold in the chocolate chips and the chopped walnuts.

Roll into 1 inch balls and place on the baking sheets.

Bake for 10 minutes and let rest for another 5-10 minutes until the cookies harden slightly.
