Neiman Marcus – Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

On one of my internet surfing expeditions, I somehow stumbled on a recipe for these famous Choc Chip Cookies  .    I saved the recipe into my favourites, with a view to making them some day.

Well… today is the day of the American Neiman Marcus Choc Chip Cookie Recipe  ..


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) / 4 ounces butter, softened
  • 1 cup / 6 ounces light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-3/4 cups /  8.75 oz cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons instant espresso coffee powder
  • 1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chipsDirections
    1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F / 150 degrees C / Gas Mark 2. Cream the butter with the sugars using an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy (approximately 30 seconds)
    2. Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract for another 30 seconds.
    3. In a mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients and beat into the butter mixture at low speed for about 15 seconds. Stir in the espresso coffee powder and chocolate chips.
    4. Using a 1 ounce scoop or a 2 tablespoon measure, drop cookie dough onto a greased cookie sheet about 3 inches apart. Gently press down on the dough with the back of a spoon to spread out into a 2 inch circle. Bake for about 20 minutes or until nicely browned around the edges. Bake a little longer for a crispier cookie.
    Yield:   2 dozen cookies

    In my blog earlier this week I set myself a task to analyse how much it costs me to make the things I cook… so a rough cost for the cookies would be around £2.00
