Neiman-Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies

Is there anything better than a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie and a cold glass of milk? The melted chocolate oozes when you take a bite and coats your tongue and lips in smooth bliss...

My Go-to chocolate chip recipe goes by many names "Neiman-Marcus, Macy's, Mock Mrs. Fields..." I don't know where the recipe originated, but every time I bake-up a batch I thank that unknown, unheralded baker.

Pictured below is the cast of characters. The key to this cookie's moistness is grated chocolate and finely ground oats. Don't omit either one, and add more grated chocolate if you dare.

Here are the stages of cookie construction. 1) creaming butter and sugars; 2) mixing in the dry ingredients; 3) Adding the grated chocolate and chocolate chips; 4) scoops of cookies dough waiting for their turn in the oven.

I use a tablespoon size ice cream scoop and scoop the dough to overflowing. Bake for just 8 minutes until just the edges start to brown. The cookies will continue after you remove them from the oven, so you want to take them out before they look finished.

COOKIES... Next to brownies, chocolate chip cookies are my favorite. Want some?
