I received an email years ago with this recipe and a story about the recipe. A lady was dining at a Neiman Marcus restaurant and love the cookie so she asked the server if she could buy it and for how much. She was told it was two fifty and had it charged to her credit card. When she got her statement she saw that she was charged $250, not $2.50 like she thought she should have been. She called the store and asked to have the charged reversed, but they refused because she had already seen the recipe. She was furious and decided to email the recipe to everyone she knew with the request to forward in on.
I have no clue if the story is true, but the cookies are delicious!
