I got an email forwarded to me today about a lady who paid $250 for a Neiman Marcus cookie recipe. Supposedly she asked the waitress for the recipe, and the waitress told her it was “two fifty”. The lady, of course, thought it was only $2.50 so she told the waitress to add it to her bill. When she got her credit card statement later in the mail, she then saw the charge for $250. She tried to fight Neiman Marcus on this, and they would not refund her money due to her already “seeing” the recipe. Because she was so mad that they “over charged her” she wants to get this recipe out to everyone in the world with an email address.
Well, I am assuming this is not a true story. I looked into it, and according to snopes, this email is False.
However, the cookie recipe did look yummy, so regardless of where it came from (it is a mystery), I thought I would share it with you all today.
