The Infamous Neiman Marcus $250 Cookie Recipe Hoax.
The story below is one of the most famous urban legends in history. The story has been going around for over 50 years and it completely untrue. Every few weeks it comes upagain in some newsgroup or listserve.
IT IS UNTRUE BUT IF YOU WISH TO TRY THE COOKIES GO AHEAD. (Ms. MacK has made them and it’s a great recipe, whether or not the story is true….they are GOOOOOODDDD!!!!!)
“My daughter & I had just 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,
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 statement from Neiman-Marcus and it was $285.00. I looked again and I remembered I had only spent $9.95 for two salads and about $20.00 for a scarf. 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 explained to her the criminal statutes which govern fraud in Texas, I threatened to refer them to the Better Business Bureau and the State’s Attorney General for engaging infraud. I was basically told,
I waited, thinking of how I could get even, or even try and get any of my money back. I just said, “Okay, you folks got my $250, and now I’m going to have $250.00 worth of fun.”
I told her that I was going to see to it that every cookie lover inthe United States with an e-mail account has a $250.00 cookie recipe from Neiman-Marcus for free. She replied,”I wish you wouldn’t do this.” I said, “Well, you should have thought of that before you ripped me off”, and slammed down the phone on her. 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….”

Neiman Marcus Responds
Alongside sewer-dwelling bands of alligators, bugs in bottles of soda, and other urban myths resides the Neiman Marcus $250 cookie fabrication. NM has never charged anyone anything for a recipe, but the story still persists. Help stamp out untrue gossip by forwarding our free chocolate-chipcookie recipe to any naysayers out there!
