250 Dollar Cookie Recipe

© All Rights Reserved

© All Rights Reserved
I took today off from work and made these cookies this afternoon, after making my Great Grand Mother's Thanksgiving stuffing this morning. Someone forwarded me this cookie recipe in an email (I think back then it was originally the "$200 recipe"). The story was something about the person eating these delicious cookies in a restaurant, asking for the recipe, and getting charged $250 for it, so they were sharing it with everyone. The story is probably an urban legend, but the cookies are delicious. The recipe is below and free for anyone to copy. I made the recipe cut in half, which is shown below the original one.

$250.00 cookie recipe:

2 cups of butter
2 cups of sugar
2 cups of brown sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp of vanilla
4 cups of flour
5 cups of blended oatmeal **
1 tsp of salt
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp of baking soda
24 oz of chocolate chips
1 8oz Hershey bar (grated)
3 cups of chopped nuts (your choice)

** measure oatmeal and blend in a blender to a fine powder

Cream butter and both sugars together. Add eggs and vanilla; mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Add chocolate chips, Hershey bar and nuts. Roll into balls, and place two inches apart on cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes 112 cookies.

Recipe halved:

1 cup of butter
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp of vanilla
2 cups of flour
2 1/2 cups of blended oatmeal **
1/2 tsp of salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda
12 oz of chocolate chips
4oz Hershey bar (grated)
1 1/2 cups of chopped nuts (your choice)

Makes 56 cookies
