Here's to you Nieman-Marcus! - UPDATED

UPDATE: found out this is a hoax. But the recipe might be worth a darn. Who knows?

A fellow scrapbooker of mine shared what's below:

A friend of mine and her daughter recently had lunch at Neiman-Marcus. After their meal was finished, my friend’s daughter wanted a cookie. To make a long story short, the Neiman-Marcus cookie was delicious so my friend asked the waiter if she could have the recipe. The waiter said “yes” for two fifty. My friend thought “great”. She got the recipe but to her surprise when she received her statement, the recipe was $250.00. She tried everything to get her money back but to no avail so she is sharing the Neiman-Marcus cookie recipe with all of us cookie lovers! With the holiday season approaching, which means extra baking, I thought I would pass this on. Enjoy!

NEIMAN-MARCUS COOKIES
2 cups butter 24 oz. chocolate chips
4 cups flour 2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt
2 cups sugar 1 - 8oz. hershey bar (grated)
5 cups blended oatmeal 4 eggs
2 tsp. baking powder 2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups chopped nuts (your choice)

Measure oatmeal, and blend in a blender to a fine powder. Cream the butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla, mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add chocolate chips, hershey bar and nuts. Roll into balls and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes 112 cookies. (Recipe may be halved)

It's a VERY good recipe --I had received a copy of it under the guise of it being Mrs. Fields' recipe. In any case, it's a good one.
