Despite the fact that I’ve never met a cookie I didn’t like, I found these Blended Oatmeal Cookies to be among the best I have ever baked (or tasted). The recipe was inspired by the infamous Neiman Marcus Cookie recipe, which my sister sent me, but I’ve added the grated Scharffen Berger chocolate and the Baker’s Sugar to make these cookies irresistibly delicious. The blended oatmeal alters the consistency of the cookies by making them softer, while at the same time eliminating big chunks of oats to make for more even baking. Move over Monster Cookies, these Blended Oatmeal Cookies could just be my new all-time favorite …
