Now when you make these cookies at first they seen very dry. You have to have real muscle to stir these babies up! Carmen did the honors. She is trying to get big muscles. Ha ha! I like my cookies to all look the same and if you use a scoop it really helps out. I used a medium scoop from Pampered Chef. Oh, yes and on a stone.

Carmen's favorite cookie
Now That I'm off from school and Christmas vacation has begun it's time to bake more cookies. Yea! A few years ago my sister came for a visit. You have to know my sister is a fantastic cook. So naturally she made us some of her best cookies.
Neiman Marcus cookies.Well, now these yummy cookies are my daughters' favorite cookie. All the kids are asking for Aunt Kathy's cookies.
I bagged up several up for my friends and neighbors. The recipe make a huge batch which is a good thing. Recipe:
2 cups butter
2 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar2 tsp vanilla 4 large eggs
4 cups flour
5 cups blended oatmeal ( blended in a processor )
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder1 tsp salt
3 cups chopped nuts ( optional ) my kids don't care for nuts
16 oz chocolate chips
16 oz butterscotch chips
Cream butters and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and mix. Mix with dry ingredients a bit at a time. ( this is very dry ) Add chips and nut. Bake cookies at 375 degrees for 10 min. I like my cookies soft so don't let them get to brown on the tops.
I hove you all are having fun this holiday season.
