Chocolate Chip Recipe

Chocolate Chip Cookies –Actually this is Neiman Marcus Cookie recipe!!!!!

The story goes that a woman visited Neiman Marcus and tasted their cookies. She asked the clerk if the recipe was for sale and she said yes for 250. She asked her to add it to her bill. When she received her credit card statement there was a charge for $250.00. After contacting Neiman Marcus and hearing their refusal to refund the charge she decided to get even by sharing it with everyone that she knew, after all SHE DID PAY FOR IT. So here it is.

Makes 12-15 large Cookies

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 semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cream the butter with the sugars until fluffy. 2. Beat in the egg and 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 375F for eight to 10 minutes or 10-12 minutes for a crispier cookie. (I only use 4 ozs. of chocolate chips and add ¼ cup of nuts)
