2014 Cookie Exchange

Of course this is the first year that I’m doing this and I’m changing the rules. I have a cookie recipe, but I also wanted to include a holiday tradition in our family that is technically a bar. I’m sure you will all forgive me when you taste them.

NEIMAN-MARCUS COOKIES (Recipe may be halved)
2 cups butter
24 oz. Chocolate chips
4 cups flour
2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Salt
2 cups sugar
1 8 oz. Hershey Bar (grated)
5 cups blended oatmeal
4 eggs
2 tsp. Baking powder
2 tsp. Vanilla
3 cups chopped nuts (your choice)
Measure oatmeal, and blend in a blender to a fine powder. Cream the butter
and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla, mix together with flour, oatmeal,
salt, baking powder, and soda. Add Chocolate chips, Hershey Bar and nuts. Roll into balls, and place two inches a part on a cookie sheet Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes 112 cookies.
I’m not sure why they are called Neiman-Marcus Cookies, maybe my father got the recipe when he worked there in the early 80s. They are just really nice as they do not spread out too much on the pan and the recipe makes more than enough to share. Admittedly, I use more chocolate chips rather than the grated Hershey bar, but it’s up to you. It’s awesome both ways.
Pumpkin Bars
4 eggs, beaten
1 c. salad oil
2 c. sugar
2 1/2 c. flour
1 c. pumpkin
½ tsp salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 c. nuts or raisins (optional)
Mix well & spread on greased & floured cookie sheet with sides.
Bake at 350 D. for 20-25 minutes.
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
6 T. butter or oleo, softened
¾ lb. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. milk
Combine with mixer at medium speed. Spread on pumpkin bars when they are cool.
This has been a family tradition at our Thanksgiving and Christmas parties for years. They are actually better the second day after the frosting can really saturate the bar. I don’t do it with nut or raisins and they are wonderful plain.
I wish everyone a happy holiday and cannot wait to see everyone else’s recipes. Please see the link list below to everyone’s blog that is participating today.

    From one rule breaker to another (I did a candy recipe) I’m glad you shared the pumpkin bars.

  • Cat

    I’ve seen the Neiman-Marcus recipe floating around the internet but haven’t seen the pumpkin bars…those look awesome! Thanks so much for sharing.

    Hugs and Blessings…

  • ronnie

    Never seen a recipe for pumpkin bars. Both recipes sound yummy. Thanks.


  • Tom Allen

    That Neiman-Marcus hoax has been around since the late 80s or early 90s.

    This is definitely something different, though. Except that I’m not sure I believe you that they are better the next day. Do they actually last that long, or do you bake a double batch?

  • Jz

    But really…
    if a cookie is as good as this looks, who cares about the name??
    Just pass the plate, please! 🙂

    Very yummy and holidayish looking, both!
    Thanks for playing along!

  • Grace

    Mmmm, the pumpkin bars sound yummy! I think my dad would particularly like them. I’ll have to pass this recipe on to my mom. 😉

  • Katie

    I’m definitely going to try the pumpkin bars! YUMMM! Both look great! Thanks for sharing. Many hugs,

    <3 Katie

  • Christina

    I broke the rules too and posted a candy recipe 😉 I’ll take a taste of the pumpkin ones please! 😀

  • rose

    I’ll admit, being from the Down Underverse, I just don’t really understand the whole pumpkin-is-a-dessert-thing-thing.
    But this recipe kinda makes me want to. Thanks for sharing!


  • Sofia Hisservant

    O, yummy, a fwo-fer! The pumpkin bars sound great. The Neiman-Marcus cookies have oatmeal in them, so they’re good for you too! – how cool is that?

  • Blondie

    The first recipe sounds soooo delicious. I would probably add chocolate chips too. The pumpkin bars, I could see becoming a holiday tradition here at my house, no raisin but maybe chocolate…..

  • Sillyone

    Oh my, both sound wonderful.
