Santa’s Cookies

I don’t know about you guys, but one of my favorite parts about the Holidays is baking. I’ve always made Christmas cookies since I was a little girl. The tradition has stuck with me and I’d like to pass on my favorite cookie recipe to you all! Of course you all know the classics; chocolate chip, sugar cookie and even snicker doodle but my absolute favorite? Neiman Marcus cookies. I’m telling you once you try these cookies there is no going back.

Neiman Marcus Cookies

Ingredients:

2½ cups rolled oats
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
4 ounces milk chocolate, grated or finely chopped
1½ cups chopped walnuts

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line three baking sheets with parchment paper or spray pan with nonstick baking spay.
  2. Blend the oats in a food processor or blender to a fine powder. In a medium bowl, whisk together the blended oats with the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  3. Using a mixer(or a whisk) Mix the cream, the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, 3-4 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract. Reduce the mixer speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture, beating just until incorporated.
  4. With a rubber spatula, fold in the chocolate chips, grated chocolate 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.
  5. Bake one sheet at a time until the edges are set but the center still looks undone, about 10 minutes.
  6. Cool the cookies completely on the baking sheets.
