Michele's Chocolate Chip Cookies


Here's a recipe I received from Michele Cook, fashioned after the Neiman Marcus $250 Cookies, with just a couple of changes on my part. Very good. Enjoy! 

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 oz bag mini chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. In small bowl, combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to creamed mixture and mix well. Add chocolate chips and pecans. Roll into walnut-sized balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 9-12 minutes until golden brown. Makes 4 dozen.
