    Neiman-Marcus cookies

    Nieman -Marcus cookies RECIPE FOLLOWS


    I love it when the little guy strikes back!

    A little background: Neiman-Marcus, if you don't know already, is a very
    expensive store; i.e., they sell your typical $8.00 T-shirt for $50.00.
    Let's let them have it! THIS IS A TRUE STORY!

    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 cookie." 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, I asked how much, and she responded, "Only two fifty-it's a great
    deal!" I agreed to that, and told her to just add it to my tab. Thirty
    days later, I received my VISA statement, and the Neiman-Marcus charge
    was $285.00! I looked agai n, and I remembered I h! ad 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 statutes which govern 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 ev en, and don't bother tryi! ng to get any of 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 for this, and I don't want Neiman-Marcus to EVER make
    another penny off of this recipe!

    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

    PLEASE READ THE RECIPE AND SEND IT TO EVERY PERSON YOU KNOW WHO HAS AN
    E-MAIL ADDRESS! THIS IS REALLY TERRIFIC!!

    Even if the people on your e-mail list don't eat sweets send it to them
    and ask them to pass it on. Let's make sure we get these ladies $250.00
    worth. Enjoy the cookies, they are good....

    That really sucks - times where slang really messes a situation up.

    Well, I do thank you very much for the recipe, I do plan to try them out for a bunch of hungry firefighters at an upcoming "social" - thank you again!
