This past year, I discovered the NM Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe on their website http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/service/nm_cookie_recipe.jhtml. I have taken them to several book club meetings, dinner parties and get togethers and everyone has raved about these cookies. My friend, Erin, says these are the best cc cookies that she has ever had. One of the things that differs from your recipe is the baking temperature and time. The recipe on the NM website has the cookies baking at 300 degrees for about 20 minutes. I tried it and discovered that this makes for the most perfectly baked cookie EVER. Yes, it takes longer, but it is well worth it! I highly recommend that you try it.
I did not have success with this recipe as others did. My cookie dough came out very crumbly- I had to squish the dough in my hand to get it to ball together, and then I did bake it as another reviewer suggested, at 300 for 20 minutes. They were just too dry and crumbly. I wonder if I did something wrong, although I am sure I measured correctly. Oh well. I will definitely use that baking method again- I've always wondered if a cookie would come out better that way, and I think they do, even with my dry crumbly ones.
Yum! This one is a keeper! I made 30 cookies out of my mix, baking for 7 mins.
