Original E-Mail Story: "My daughter and I had just finished
a salad at a Neiman-Marcus Cafe in Dallas and decided to
have a small dessert. Because both of us 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 the waitress said with
a small frown, "I'm afraid not but, you can buy the
recipe." Well, I asked how much, and she responded,
"Only two fifty, it's a great deal!" I agreed
with approval, just add it to my tab I told her. 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". That was outrageous! I called
Neiman's Accounting Dept. and told them the waitress said
it was "two-fifty," which clearly does not mean
"two hundred and fifty dollars" by any POSSIBLE
interpretation of the phrase. Neiman-Marcus refused
to budge. They would not refund my money, because
according to them, "What the waitress told you is
not our problem. You have already seen the recipe. We
absolutely will not refund your money at this
point." I explained to her the criminal statues
which govern fraud in Texas. I threatened to refer them
to the Better Business Bureau and the State Attorney
General Office for engaging in fraud. I was basically
told, "Do what you want, it doesn't matter, we're
not refunding your money." 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, 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
in the United States with an e-mail account has a $250.00
cookie recipe from Neiman-Marcus... for free. She
replied, "I wish you wouldn't do this." I said,
"Well, you should have thought of that before you
ripped me off," and slammed down the phone on
her. So here it is!!! Please, please, please pass
it on to everyone you can possibly think of. I paid $250
for this...I don't want Neiman-Marcus to ever get another
penny off of this recipe..."
the story is...I have used this recipe many times
and its always a big hit.
email may be a hoax, but the recipe is real...
and it's yummy!!
always use an ice cream/cookie scooper to shape
dough, works better.
has to be the best tasting cookie recipe EVER!!
seem to be a fairly good chocolate chip oatmeal
cookie reciepe. I have used something similar for
years, and have people yelling for more. Of
course, I stole it from Quaker Oats, it was on
the side of the container.
got this recipe almost a year ago. I tried it and
made a few changes. I found 5 cups of oatmeal
just a little much. I dropped it to 3 and for
some THAT might still be to much. Try different
amounts to your liking. The other change I made
was to use peanutbutter chips OR butterscotch for
HALF the chocolate chips (12 oz. chocolate chips
and 12 oz. butterscotch (my favorite) chips) Give
these different additions a try and make your own
was wondering if this was a true story and if the
receipe is for reals. On the top of this recipe
it says, "Recipe from: E-Mail Hoax. Just
curious. Also, did they served it on a fancy
cookie plate or did they just put it in one of
those waxed paper baggies? Maybe you were
supposed to keep the $250.00 plate that the
cookie was served on! :) (Or the $250.00 waxed
paper baggy imported from Europe)!
1985 I worked for Mrs. Fields Cookies. A woman
came in informing me she no longer had to buy our
cookies because she now had the recipe. I
explained to her that that was impossible as the
recipe was a much guarded secret. kind of like
CoCa Cola, no one person had the complete recipe.
She said she had proof and showed me the exact
recipe you have listed as Neiman Marcus! AND her
story was the same. She tried to buy the recipe,
got ripped off, yada yada yada....I doubt this
recipe is any more Neiman Marcus's recipe than it
is Mrs. Fields. People are so gullible!!!
