Thread: Cookie Recipe

  1. #1
    One of my buddies sent this to me over the internet. I thought it meritied posting.

    A little background:

    Neiman-Marcus, if you don't know already, is a very
    expensive store, i.e., they sell a typical $8.00 T-shirt for $50.00. Let's
    let them have it.


    My daughter and I had just finished a salad at a
    Neiman-Marcus Cafe in
    Dallas, and we decided to have a small dessert.
    Because both of us are such
    cookie lovers, we decided to try the "Neiman-Marcus
    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, ideal!" I agreed to that, and told
    her just to add it to my
    tab. Thirty days later, I received my VISA
    statement, and the Neiman-Marcus
    charge 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
    Department and told them
    the waitress said it was "two fifty", which clearly
    does not mean "two
    hundred and fifty dollars" by any reasonable
    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 the Accounting Department
    lady the criminal statues
    which go! vern fraud in the state of
    Texas. I threatened to report them to the Better
    Business Bureau and the
    Texas Attorney General's office for engaging in
    fraud. I was basically told,
    "Do what you want. Don't bother thinking of how you
    can get even, and don't
    bother trying to get your money back." I just said,
    "Okay, you folks got my
    $250, and now I'm
    going to have $250 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 cookie recipe from Neiman! -Marcus....for free.
    She replied, "I wish you
    wouldn't do this." I said, "Well, perhaps you
    should have thought of that
    before you ripped
    me off!" and slammed down the phone. So here it is.
    Please, please, please
    pass it on to everyone you can possibly think of. I
    paid $250 U.S. for this
    and I don't want Neiman-Marcus to EVER make another
    penny off this recipe!

    NEIMAN-MARCUS COOKIES (Recipe may be halved)

    2 cups butter
    24 oz. chocolate chips
    4 cups flour
    2 cups brown sugar
    2 tsp. soda
    1 tsp. salt
    2 cups sugar
    18 oz. Hershey Bar (grated)
    5 cups blended oatmeal
    4 eggs
    2 tsp. baking powder
    2 tsp. vanilla
    3 cups chopped nuts (your choice)

    Measure oatmeal, and blend in a blender to a fine powder.
    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.


    Have fun!!! This is not a joke-it's a true story.
    Ride free, citizens!

    You know, I&#39;m actually tempted to try this too.

    The rest of you, lay off him. He hasn&#39;t done anything wrong. Even if this story is bull, if the cookies work, and they taste good, then no problem... I&#39;ll have a new cookie recipe because of him.

    Though I can&#39;t pinpoint exactly, but I feel something is wrong with this recipe. Something doesn&#39;t look right....hmmm

    Kiss the cook.

    Do you realize how much you just fucked up&#33; We have the angency&#39;s breathing down our necks because of you&#33; Your&#39; Urban Ledegend has caused the ULAOTOCAPUL(Urban ledgend associatoin of the online community against posted
