  1. Has anyone ever tried this recipe? I’ve always wanted to but never gotten around to it.

  2. Of course, the recipe story isn’t true, though, and the recipe from the chain letter isn’t as good as the one from the actual Neiman Marcus site, which had to post up their own recipe as part of a debunk of this malicious chain letter story. You can read about it plus various other recipe chains at One link even has an experiment where someone tried out the rumor recipe, and the real Neiman Marcus one, and the results were the Neiman Marcus one is a better recipe according to their page.

    • So I guess you got the same email…haha

      The story was pretty fake, how could you charge so much on your credit card without you knowing?

      I think it’s time to post up the “Free Cookie” recipe!

      Thanks for the link.
