The story goes that the original recipe came from Neiman Marcus Department store. Over the years, I have made some changes. &nbsp These cookies are given to our guests when they leave.   I tried to substitute other cookies, but returning guests quickly told me that they wanted these chocolate chip cookies.   You will understand if you make them.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Combine the ingredients in the following order:
1 cup oil or butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
Let set for 5-10 minutes.

Then add:
2 cups flour (when doubling, use 3 1/2 cups flour)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

(The choc chips mix with the batter better if added before the oatmeal.)

2 cups chocolate chips, some semi sweet, milk choc, dark choc. or bitter-sweet choc.
1 1/2 cup nuts
2 1/2 cups blended oatmeal

(Measure oatmeal; blend in blender to a fine powder)
(Nuts can be added to blender)

I have found that if I let the cookies sit on the counter for 20 minutes to 2 hours,
they have a nicer consistency after they are baked.

Place 2″ apart on cookie sheet.   Bake about 10 min at 375 deg.   Enjoy!
