When Sandy told me that she was going to bake the Neiman Marcus $250 Cookie I thought, what a perfect cookie choice to come from my fabulous fashion blogger friend! Sandy and I both started blogging around the same time frame, and even though we have two totally different blogs, we support each other 100% in the goals we are trying to achieve. It is so much fun seeing our creative outlets bloom together and I would want to share it with none other than my sweet and beautiful friend. So be sure to follow her on all social media and her website – http://sandycfuller.com/ – Now back to the cookie!
The story has it that a woman visited Neiman-Marcus in Dallas and ordered a dessert — the Neiman Marcus cookie. The woman was so impressed by the delicious cookie that she asked an employee if she could have the recipe. When the employee declined, the woman asked to purchase the recipe, and was told that it would cost her “two-fifty.” When the woman received her VISA statement, she’d been charged $250 for the famous cookie recipe. Taken back by being charged $250 instead of the couple bucks she expected to pay, the woman published the recipe online as revenge, and could you blame her?
You won’t be disappointed with this priceless cookie!
