Hey, I just go the email too.

So, just wanted to find out if anyone has actually ever TRIED MAKING this recipe?? I am thinking about it but hoping someone has tried it first and can give feedback.

I make them all the time. They are a fan favourite around here. I think the key is making sure the oatmeal is really fine. Make them, they are the best!

I've had this recipe for 20 years at least. It became a tradition that my daughters and I made these cookies on Christmas Eve for Santa. They are both over 30 now (my daughters, not the cookies). They turned out so good, Santa always cleaned his plate!

I still make them for the holidays.

Hey, it says the recipe makes 112 cookies. (yikes)I will probably make the full recipe when I try this.

When you made them, did they actually yield that many? Are the balls the size of a melon scoop? Or more like an ice cream scoop?

I never got 112 cookies from a batch. I make them closer to a melon scoop than an ice cream scoop... about the size of a ping pong ball.

It's funny how urban legends do change and mutate--this recipe is identical to one that came as the secret recipe for Mrs. Field's Chocolate Chip Cookie--same sort of story, a disgruntled employee, or just a greedy one(the story varies) sold the recipe for $100, $400, $1000, take your pick.

I wonder where this recipe really originated? It makes a fine tasty cookie!

Hey, I just made these last night. Man, it was a BIG batch. Filled my whole KA Aritsan mixer. I actually got about 112 cookies, maybe even more. I used a melon scoop and baked for only 8 minutes. They're really good. Though I also used white choc. chips instead since that was all I had.

I've read that Nieman Marcus denies that story, and in fact posted their actual cookie recipe on the web.
Years ago, when I was in college, my first MIL to be was bridal manager at the Ft. Worth Neiman's, and I often hung out their on Saturday afternoons.
Their chocolate chip cookies were orgasmic. They also had wonderful strawberry jam.
I had so much fun at that store.
One day, the manager of fine jewlery showed me how he treated the millionaire's wives. He took me into a locked room with an armed guard at the door, opened the safe, and let me try on all kinds of fantastic diamond jewelry, including a yellow diamond solitaire ring that almost hid my knuckle.
They did any and everything to please their customers, and treated everyone who came in the same, because a pauper one day, might be a millionaire the next.
Years later, when I started my own business, I remembered that rule, and I loved seeing the Lincolns and Cadilacs out in my parking lot next to the old beat up clunkers.
