Best-Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies


This child friend-maker is supposedly the recipe for cookies made and sold by Neiman Marcus, per the legend that travels the Internet. Neiman Marcus claims no ownership, and in fact, they have posted their own recipe on their website at: NM Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe. Although the origin of this Internet recipe below is unknown, the truth is that these are darned good cookies! I thought everyone and their mother had the well-circulated recipe by now, but I continue to get requests for it. Much thanks to the originator of a truly great urban legend! - Joanna
