>> My daughter & I had just finished a salad at Neiman-Marcus Cafe
>>in Dallas & decided to have a small dessert. Because our family
>>are such cookie lovers, we decided to try the "Neiman-Marcus
>>Cookie". It was so excellent that I asked if they would give me
>>the recipe and they said with a small frown, "I'm afraid not."
>>Well, I said, would you let me buy the recipe? With a cute
>>smile, she said, "Yes." I asked how much, and she responded,
>>"Two fifty." I said with approval, just add it to my tab.
>> Thirty days later, I received my VISA statement from
>>Neiman-Marcus and it was $285.00. I looked again and I
>>remembered I had only spent $9.95 for two salads and about $20.00
>>for a scarf. As I glanced at the bottom of the statement, it
>>said, "Cookie Recipe - $250.00." Boy, was I upset]] I called
>>Neiman's Accounting Dept. and told them the waitress said it was
>>"two fifty," and I did not realize she meant $250.00 for a cookie
>>recipe. I asked them to take back the recipe and reduce my bill
>>and they said they were sorry, but because all the recipes were
>>this expensive so not just everyone could duplicate any of our
>>bakery recipes....the bill would stand. I waited, thinking of
>>how I could get even or even try and get any of my money back.
>>I just said, "Okay, you folks got my $250.00 and now I'm going to
>>have $250.00 worth of fun." I told her that I was going to see to
>>it that every cookie lover will have a $250.00 cookie recipe from
>>Neiman-Marcus for nothing. She replied, "I wish you wouldn't do
>>this." I said, "I'm sorry but this is the only way I feel I could
>>get even," and I will.
>> So, here it is, and please pass it to someone else or run a few
>>copies....I paid for it; now you can have it for free.
>>(Recipe may be halved.):
>>2 cups butter 4 cups flour
>>2 tsp. soda 2 cups sugar
>>5 cups blended oatmeal** 24 oz. chocolate chips
>>2 cups brown sugar 1 tsp. salt
>>1 8 oz. Hershey Bar (grated) 4 eggs
>>2 tsp. baking powder 3 cups chopped nuts
>>2 tsp. vanilla (your choice)
>> Cream the butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla; mix
>>together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and soda. Add
>>chocolate chips, Hershey Bar and nuts.
>> Roll into balls and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet.
>>Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes 112 cookies.
>>** measure oatmeal and blend in a blender to a fine powder.
>>Have fun]]] This is not a joke --- this is a true story..
>> That's it. Please, pass it along to everyone you know, single
>>people, mailing lists, etc.....
