Famous Neiman Marcus Cookies

Ingredients

2.5 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)

2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon table salt

1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

1.5 cups chopped walnuts

parchment paper

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
[1]
Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
[2]
Blend the oats in a food processor or blender to a fine powder. In a large bowl whisk together the blended oats with the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
[3]
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, 3-4 minutes. Scrape down the sides and beat in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract. On low speed gradually mix in the flour mixture, beating just until incorporated. With a rubber spatula fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts.

Roll the dough into 2-ounce balls (or about 2 heaping tablespoonfuls worth) and place about 2 inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Cookies should be lightly brown and set on the outside but still look a little undone in the middle. That's okay they will finish setting up after you remove them from the oven. Let cool 2-3 minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
