Urban Legend Cookies

This recipe comes to me via e-mail from my dad. The website he got this from claims that the $250 Neiman-Marcus Cookie recipe story is just an urban legend. Whatever the case, a recipe is a recipe, and this one looks great! Makes quite a few cookies, too!

2 cups butter
4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 cups sugar
5 cups blended oatmeal (measure oatmeal and blend in blender until a fine powder)
24 oz. chocolate chips
2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 8 oz. Hershey bar, grated
4 eggs
2 tsp. baking powder
3 cups chopped nuts (your choice)
2 tsp. vanilla

Cream the butter and both sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Add the chocolate chips, Hershey bar, and nuts. Roll into balls and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees.

Yield: 112 cookies
