Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe - 1999

Home | Tim's Cooking Blog | Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies - 1999

There was an urban myth that Neiman Marcus once charged an unsuspecting customer $250 for their chocolate chip cookie recipe. The story is untrue—they have never charged anyone for a recipe—but the fact is that this is a GREAT recipe.

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons instant espresso powder, slightly crushed
8 ounces semisweet chocolate chips


1. Cream the butter with the sugars until fluffy.
2. Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract.
3. Combine the dry ingredients and beat into the butter mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips.
4. Drop by large spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to10 minutes, or 10 to 12 minutes for a crispier cookie. Makes 12 to 15 large cookies.
