The famous Neiman Marcus Biscuit

July 11, 2009
Why is it so famous??? Well.... email has been circulating around... about this lady who dined at this 'Neiman-Marcus' restaurant in the US. She tried this biscuit, liked it and asked for the recipe... To make long story short - she was charged US$250 for the recipe... not happy (obviously!!) she circulated the recipe via email.... just to spike the restaurant!! How authentic the story?? Your guess is as good as mine!

So we decided to try out the recipe.... no harm done....

Verdict~the cookies are really good... of course with all the chocolates... hazelnut thrown in....

These cookies do not have a long life span in our cookie jar....just like 'that biscuits' advert...

Now you see it ... now you don't

250 g butter
340g chocolate chips
500ml flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp bicarbonate soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
250g Hershey bar or Cadbury bar - grated
1 1/2 cup oatmeal - blended
2 eggs at room temperature
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 1/2 hazelnut or pecan - chopped

Cream the sugar and butter. Add eggs and the dried ingredients. Mix well. Roll into a ball and bake at 180C for 10-15 minutes. Leave it to cool on the rack...
