Winner: Worlds Best Chocolate Chip Cookie!!

       Well folks, the moment has arrived!! It has been a tough competition, but we have a winner for the worlds best chocolate-chip cookie recipe. I received 10 entries....I almost had to join a gym to finish the contest!
       Kristen N (Krisdi78 on the Nest) sent the recipe for the famous "Neiman-Marcus" cookies - there is an old wive's tale floating around that this recipe cost $250! A quick google search showed the rumour to be false, but wherever they came from, they are truly the BEST chocolate chip cookie in the world.
       I made some of the cookies with nuts, and some without - they were tasty either way. I also threw some white chocolate-chips into some of the cookies, which I highly recommend.  They are slightly more time-consuming than some cookies since you have to blend the oatmeal & chop some of the chocolate, but it is well worth the extra few minutes. Thank you so much to Kristen for sharing, and congrats on the win!
        I'm going to make a separate page tab with all of the recipes submitted, because they were all really, really good. So keep an eye for that in the coming weeks.
