This recipe circulated in an "urban legend" email about 5 years ago. As the legend went, a customer in a fancy restaurant asked for a cookie recipe and was charged $250 on their bill for it at the end of the meal. The legend turned out to be false, but these remain the BEST chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted, and certainly the best to ever come out of my kitchen! NOTE: Do NOT leave out the oats. Even if you don't necessarily like oats in your cookies, they will not bake right without them. Also make sure that the cookies are SMALL - roll them up into balls that are a bit smaller than a golf ball. They don't bake right if you make them too big. Recipe can be halved.
