$250 Cookie Recipe

I got an e-mail chain for this recipe a few years ago and didn't believe how good they actually would be until my co-worker made them.  They really are as good as they sound!

The story goes as follows...
A woman had lunch at The Hedges at Neiman Marcus in New York City in November. For dessert, she had a cookie. She thought it the most wonderful cookie she had ever tasted and asked if the recipe was available. It was, but for a two-fifty charge. She said fine, got the recipe and told them to charge her account. When she got her bill in December, there was a charge for $250.00. She called and told them there was a mistake, the charge should be $2.50. She was then told that there was no mistake - the charge was correct. She vowed to get back at them. All she asks is that everyone who gets a copy, send it to everyone they know.

You will need to quarter this recipe (see parens) as it will make 112 cookies and you'll be baking all day.
2 c. butter (1/2 c)

2 c. sugar (1/2 c)
2 c. brown sugar (1/2 c)
4 eggs (1 egg)
2 tsp. vanilla (1/2 tsp)
4 c. flour (1 c)
5 c. blended oatmeal (1 1/4 c)
2 tsp. baking powder (1/2 tsp)
2 tsp. baking soda (1/2 tsp)
1 tsp. salt (1/2tsp)
24 oz. chocolate chips (6 oz)
1 (8 oz.) grated Hershey bar (1/4 oz)
3 c. chopped nuts (3/4 c)

Blended oatmeal: Measure and blend in blender or food processor to a fine powder.
Cream butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix together with flour, oatmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add chips, candy and nuts. Roll into balls and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 6 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes 112 cookies. Recipe can be halved or quartered and the size made smaller. Possible to get four dozen of a 1 1/2 inch cookie from quartered recipe.
