The Neiman Marcus Cookie Receipe- Urban Myth or not- you be the judge!

I’m in the process of getting not only my homes, but the other Mermaid Cottages ready for the holidays. Besides the decorating of the homes, this also includes starting to get ready for the holiday baking. This is one heck of a cookie to make but also has an interesting story behind it….. Part of the Internet landscape- Urban Myths- be it the dog from Mexico that turns out to be a rat or now this great story about the $250 recipe for cookies- they make life interesting! Everything I’ve found on the Internet says this is a good old fashioned urban myth- but no matter- this is an un believeable cookie recipe! Try it and see what you think! Yum is what I say!!!
