I got this from a mailing list I am on and thought it deserved to be passed
along. Enjoy!
My daughter & I had just finished a salad at Neiman-Marcus Cafe in Dallas
and 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. 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 $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

2 cups butter 4 cups flour 2 tsp. soda

Have fun!!! This is not a joke-----this is a true story....................
