This is a true story and no one had posted it yet so I thought I would.

Woman and daughter have lunch at Neiman-Marcus Cafe in Dallas...have salads, then decide to have a treat so they ordered two chocolate chip cookies. They loved the so much they asked for the recipe, and the waitress said, "I am afraid not" The woman asked if she could buy the recipe and the waitress, with a sly smile said sure. the woman asked "How much" and the waitress said "two fifty" Woman reply's, great just put it on my tab....30 days later the bill arrives, and yes it was $250.00.

When she called to dispute the charge, the lady in accounting said
"Sorry all of our recipes cost this much" and would not drop the charge so the woman said, well I am going to have $250.00 dollars of fun with this and told the accountant that she would see to it that every cookie lover will have the Neiman-Marcus recipe for free.... The woman in accounting said "I wish you wouldn't do that" woman said, "well this in the only way I can get even and I will".

Funny story.

I have made these many times and they are to DIE FOR!!!!
Sorry I don't have a picture yet. Enjoy!
