So urban legend says that this amazing chocolate chip oat cookie recipe was sold by “Neiman Marcus” to a customer for a whopping $250. Obviously when the customer realized her misinterpretation of “two fifty” she tried to have the charge removed and the department store refused so as a woman scorned she gave the recipe away!
In reality I have no idea where this recipe came from but word on the Internet is “Neiman Marcus” and what source is more reliable than the web?
**Please note the sarcasm dripping from my text**
Yes, I may have bit the cookie before I snapped a shot.
Don’t judge me. I have no self control.
