USE YOUR IMAGINATION AND THE MATERIALS AVAILABLE TO YOU.

Hoax Cookie Recipe

The story with the following recipe is a hoax! The only reason I have included it, is so if you run across it elsewhere, you'll know it is a hoax. I saw this posted on a company bulletin board where I used to work. Wanting to verify it, I called the person named on the letterhead. He said he had been receiving calls from all over the world, mostly from within the company, and that the people calling had been taken in hook, line, and sinker! Ron said he was NOT the person who started it. Presumably someone on the college campus nearby had gotten it into company mail with his name on it. He said he had tried the recipe though, and the cookies were really good! My wife made a batch, and they are.

 GREETINGS!
 Subject: Pass it on..........EXPENSIVE LESSON - $250.00 COOKIE RECIPE
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------

   My daughter and I had finished a salad at the Nieman-Marcus Cafe in
 Dallas and decided to have a small desert. Because our family members are
 such ; Cookie; monsters; , we decided to try the Neiman-Marcus Cookie. It
 was so good that I asked if they would give me the recipe. She said with
 a frown, ; I'm afraid not. Well, I said, Would you let me buy the recipe?
 With a cute smile, she agreed. I asked how much, and she responded ; two - Fifty.; 
 I said with approval, 'Just add it to my tab.'


   Thirty days later I received my statement from Neiman-Marcus and it was
 $285.00. I looked again and remembered I had only spent $9.95 for two salads
 and about $20 for a scarf. As I glanced at the bottom of the statement it
 said 'Cookie recipe-$250.' Boy was I upset! I called Neiman's accounting
 office and told them the waitress said it was ; two - fifty;  and did not realize
 she meant $250 for a cookie recipe. I asked them to take back the recipe and
 reduce my bill, but they said they were sorry, but all the recipes were this
 expensive so not just anyone could duplicate the bakery recipes...the bill
 would stand.


   I thought of how I could get even or get my 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 will have
 the $250 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
 can get even and I will.' So here it is, please pass it on to someone else
 or run a few copies...I paid for it, now you can have it for free!!!


      2 cups butter                    1 tsp. salt
      2 cups sugar                     2 tsp. baking powder
      2 cups brown sugar               2 tsp. soda
      4 eggs                           24 oz. chocolate chips
      2 tsp. vanilla                   1-8oz. Hershey bar, grated
      4 cups flour                     3 cups chopped nuts
      5 cups blended oatmeal*

  See next screen for instructions:


 Cream 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. Makes 112 cookies (recipe may be halved).

 * Measure oatmeal and blend in a blender to a fine powder.

Well, this was a hoax, but at least a delicious one!
