Neiman Marcus Cookie Recipe


Neiman Marcus Cookie Recipe with Shepherd’s Grain flour

Try this amazing recipe from one of our farmer’s wives- Stacie Shulthesis. This recipe is based from the original and ‘famous’ $250 Neiman Marcus cookie recipe that included blended oats, chopped walnuts, and both grated chocolate and chocolate chips. In our August 2019 Newsletter, Stacie writes:

“While I may pick up a new farm task here and there, some tasks never change. For me that’s baking, making sure the farmers bellies are full of delicious home baked treats all harvest long. While Kyle is in the fields growing and harvesting Shepherd's Grain wheat, I’m in the kitchen baking with Shepherd's Grain flour baking the most delicious farm to table treats.

I grew up baking with my grandmother, mom, cousins and aunts; Christmas cookies were our fun specialty, but harvest cookies were considered a necessity. In every season, whether Christmas or Harvest, we gather to bake a kitchen full of cookies; a tradition that we continue and I now share with my own children. The kids and I enjoy baking Neiman Marcus cookies, as they are my husband’s favorite.”
