Cheating at a Million...

...Million Dollar Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Nothing is as satisfying as fresh baked cookies from the oven and the infamous Million Dollar Chocolate Chip Cookies are probably some of the best. You are probably all familiar with the story...
A woman and her daughter are having lunch at <insert department store name> and decide to have cookies for dessert. The woman is so impressed by the cookie that she asks for the recipe. After being told no, she offers to buy the recipe. The waitress tells the woman that the recipe will cost two-fifty. Thinking this is a bargain, the woman tells the waitress to add it to her bill. One month later, she discovers while looking at her credit card statement that the cookie recipe cost her $250. Not able to convince the department store to take back the recipe and credit her money back, the woman proceeds to email the recipe to all of her friends and so on.
This story has been around for decades; the only thing that changes is the name of the
department store. The recipe is pretty much the same, a delicious cookie containing oatmeal, nuts, and chocolate chips. Here is a simple way to recreate the recipe without all the fuss.

Ingredients
2 eggs
2 sticks salted butter (softened)

1.   Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
2.   Stir softened butter and egg in medium bowl.
3.   Stir in both packets of cookie mix.
4.   Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased
cookie sheet.
5.   Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown.
6.   Cool 1 minute before removing from cookie sheet.

Makes approx. 4-5 dozen cookies.
