This urban legend has to do with Neiman Marcus charging a customer $250 for a chocolate chip cookie recipe. At the time this story started circulating, Neiman Marcus restaurants didn’t even SELL chocolate chip cookies!
However (and this part fascinates me and has earned my respect), as an antidote to this defamatory urban legend, Neiman Marcus chefs did create a chocolate chip cookie recipe after the fact. And, they have posted it on their company website, free of charge! You can download it here!
I’m hoping to test it out over the holiday weekend!
Kudos to Neiman Marcus!
