Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Recipe

This is the fake Neiman-Marcus recipe that circulates on the web every once in a while. But the cookies are really good!

2 cups butter
2 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
4 cups flour
5 cups blended oatmeal
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
24 oz. chocolate chips
1 8 oz. Hershey bar, grated
3 cups chopped nuts (optional - I don't like nuts in cookies so I don't put it in)

*Measure oatmeal and blend in a blender to a find powder.

Cream butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add choclate chips, Hershey bar and nuts. Roll into balls and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 375. Makes 112 cookes (recipe may be halved).
