>>>>>      My daughter & I had just finished a salad at Neiman-Marcus Cafe in
>>>>> Dallas & 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 and they said
>>>>> with a small frown, "I'm afraid not."  Well, I said, would you let me
>>>>> buy 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
>>>>> 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
>>>>> 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 a $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
>>>>> halved.):
>>>>> 2  cups butter                           4   cups flour
>>>>> 2  tsp. soda                             2   cups sugar
>>>>> 5  cups blended oatmeal**               24    oz. chocolate chips
>>>>> 2  cups brown sugar                      1   tsp. salt
>>>>> 1  8 oz. Hershey Bar (grated)            4   eggs
>>>>> 2  tsp. baking powder                    3   cups chopped nuts
>>>>> 2  tsp. vanilla  (your choice)
>>>>>      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.
>>>>> ** measure oatmeal and blend in a blender to a fine powder.
>>>>> Have fun!!!  This is not a joke --- this is a true story..
>>>>> ************************************************************
>>>>>      That's it. Please, pass it along to everyone you know, single
>>>>> people, mailing lists, etc...
