NEIMAN MARCUS COOKIE RECIPE

(posted in 2009)

Last week a bunch of us ladies were invited to an event at Neiman Marcus by one of our friends who works there. There were free massages, drinks, food, facials, and a $50 gift card for going.

It was my first time at Neiman Marcus. We even dragged our poor husbands along so we could get an extra $50 gift card but let’s be honest, you can’t really buy much for $50 at that store.

Anyway, being there reminded me of an email that I have gotten repeatedly over the years about the Neiman Marcus cookie story. I am not sure if this is true or just a myth but it’s entertaining nonetheless…

…supposedly a lady ordered a cookie at Neiman Marcus and enjoyed it so much she asked to buy the recipe. The waitress said she could if she paid “two fifty”. She assumed it meant $2.50 but she was charged $250. She called the account office at Neiman Marcus after receiving the bill and they refused to refund her. So, she told them that she was going to have $250 dollars worth of fun with the recipe. She gave the recipe out to everyone she could think of and told them to give it out to others.

So I have to say with all the hype about the cookie, I was afraid I would be let down but I absolutely wasn’t. They have a crisp outside with a soft middle. The blended oats add a fabulous chewy texture. I will definitely be adding them to my cookie repertoire. Enjoy!
