These are almost better after they have been sitting for a while. They have a crisp outside with a soft middle. The blended oats add a fabulous chewy texture. I got this recipe from I hope you enjoy these cookies too!

How to Make Authentic Nieman Marcus Bars


  • 1Preheat oven to 375°. This is a thick dough. If you have a KitchenAid, use it.
  • 2Measure oatmeal, and blend in a blender or food processor to a fine powder. Cream the butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla, mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and soda. Stir in chocolate chips, milk chocolate bar, and pecans.
