Subject: FW: VIRTUAL PROTEST: A great cookie recipe

THIS IS TRUE --PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ IT, GET BACK AT NEIMAN MARCUS.
AND PLEASE SEND THIS TO EVERY SINGLE PERSON YOU KNOW WHO HAS AN E-MAIL
ADDRESS.

THIS IS REALLY TERRIFIC.

My daughter & I had finished a salad at Neiman-Marcus Cafe in Dallas &
decided to have a small dessert. Because both of us are such cookie
lovers, we decided to try the "Neiman-Marcus Cookie". It was so
excellent that I asked if they would give me the recipe and the waitress
said with a small frown, "I'm afraid not." "Well," I said, "would you
let me buy the recipe?" With a cute smile, she said, "Yes." I asked
how much, and she responded, "Only two fifty, it's a great deal!" I said
with approval, "Just add it to my tab".

Thirty days later, I received my VISA bill from Neiman-Marcus and it was
$285. As I glanced at the bottom of the statement, it said, "Cookie Recipe
- $250.00." That's outrageous!! I called Neiman's Accounting Dept. and told
them the waitress said it was "two-fifty," which clearly does not mean "two
hundred and fifty dollars" by any *POSSIBLE* interpretation of the phrase.

Neiman-Marcus refused to budge. They would not refund my money, because
according to them, "What the waitress told you is not our problem. You have
already seen the
recipe - we absolutely will not refund your money at this point."

I told her that I was going to see to it that every cookie lover with an e-mail
account has a $250.00 cookie recipe from Neiman-Marcus... for free.

So, here it is!!! Please, please, please pass it on to everyone you can
possibly think of. I paid $250 dollars for this... I don't want
Neiman-Marcus to *ever* get another penny off of this recipe....

(Recipe may be halved.):
2 cups butter
4 cups flour =20
2 tsp. soda
2 cups sugar
5 cups blended oatmeal**
24 oz. chocolate chips
2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 8 oz. Hershey Bar (grated)
4 eggs
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups chopped nuts (your choice)

Cream the 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 degrees.

Makes 112 cookies.

Have fun!!! This is *not* a joke --- this is a true story.
