Big Becky's $1,000.00 Oatmeal Cookies

Mistee Powers


My mom (Big Becky) was reading in a magazine a story of the Thousand Dollar cookie. It goes that a lady was out to lunch and for dessert ordered the cookie she loved it so much she asked for the recipe and they said they would sell it for a grand. Of course the unknowing patron didn't understand the slang for $1,000.00. She got her bill with a big surpise. The resturant wouldn't let her return the recipe because she could have written it down. She was so upset and sweet revenge she gave it to the magazine to publish along with the story so everyone could enjoy the 1 grand cookies!!
