Neiman Marcus Cookies

I have been hanging onto this recipe for far too long and I just can’t wait to share this fun chocolate chip cookie recipe with you. There’s a story floating around about famous Neiman Marcus cookies – someone asked for the recipe and then the restaurant billed them an exorbitant amount for the recipe. So to spite the restaurant, the woman shared it with all of her friends. I have no idea if that story is true or not, but I’m just glad this recipe isn’t a secret!

What makes this Neiman Marcus cookie recipe a little different than a traditional chocolate chip cookies recipe is that it has ground oats (which add great texture and flavor to the cookie), lots of butter, and mini chocolate chips which means you get a little bit in every bite. Ground oats can be made by placing dry oatmeal in a blender, coffee grinder, or food processor and processing until the oats turn into flour. It’s a small extra step, but it’s what makes these cookies unique.

This recipe is from my sister-in-law. She always makes these cookies pretty small (as indicated in the recipe) and that is another thing that I love about them. When the cookies are mini, you feel like you can eat a bunch of them, right?! These are great to make when a crowd of kids are over at your house or for a party too since small cookies go extra far.

The famous Neaman Marcus Cookie recipe made with ground oats, butter, and mini chocolate chips, is sure to be a family favorite in no time.

Tips & Tricks for Making the Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe:

  • Don’t even think about subbing margarine or shortening in this recipe… don’t. even. think. about. it.
  • You can sub the grated Hershey bar for more mini chocolate chips, though the bar melts into these little pockets of chocolate and it’s wonderful.
  • Measure out the oats first and then grind them into flour and use all of the flour it creates.
  • My sister-in-law has a mini cookie scoop just for this recipe. I’m telling you, mini cookies are extra fun!
