Cash for Cookies!

I just came across an Urban Legend and wanted to share!

Long story short. A lady has sandwich and a cookie with her daughter at the Neiman-Marcus cafe’.  She LOVES the cookie so much she asks for the recipe. Waitress says she can’t give it away for free, it cost two fifty. So the lady buys it! Fast forward a month ahead, the lady checks her statement and saw that two-fifty actually means $250.00. The store won’t refund her the money since she’s already seen the recipe…so as revenge she passes it along to everyone for free and encourages people to continue to forward!

If you end up making this PLEASE let me know how it turns out. Rumor has it these bad boys are GREAT!
