Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies

Taken from the Neiman Marcus website. I like soft cookies, and these got a bit crunchy by that night, so we put them in a baggie with a piece of bread and the cookies were soft the next day. The only change I made was omitting the espresso powder. Take note – they’re baked at 300!

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons instant espresso coffee powder
  • 1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Cream the butter with the sugars using an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy (approximately 30 seconds)
    2. Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract for another 30 seconds.
    3. In a mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients and beat into the butter mixture at low speed for about 15 seconds. Stir in the espresso coffee powder and chocolate chips.
    4. Using a 1 ounce scoop or a 2 tablespoon measure, drop cookie dough onto a greased cookie sheet about 3 inches apart. Gently press down on the dough with the back of a spoon to spread out into a 2 inch circle. Bake for about 20 minutes or until nicely browned around the edges. Bake a little longer for a crispier cookie.
    Yield: 2 dozen cookies

      Read an article some years ago about a mother and daughter having lunch at
      Neiman’s. After enjoying a cookie mother asked for the recipe. Mother paid for lunch but didn’t really look at her credit card statement. She didn’t realize that the recepie would cost her $200.00. I think this is how the storie went. So thanks for the expensive and great recipe. I will try this one too.
