"Neimann Marcus" cookies

the baking itch hit me again and today, i decided to use the recipe i got from my email a couple of months back. it was the recipe of "Neimann Marcus" cookies. it was said that a lady bought the recipe from a Neimann-Marcus branch and thought that it costs only $2.50. when she got her credit card bill, she was surprised that it was $250.00! so, to get even, she decided to share the recipe with everybody.

Bengorts, to whom i forwarded the same email, had tried the recipe before and it turned out okay. so i proceeded to make the cookies, but only after Bengorts answered all my endless questions. baking cookies was another first for me just like the lasagna i made a week ago.

all the while i thought it was the true recipe. it was only a few minutes ago that i learned that it was an urban legend. oh well, i've already made the cookies and from my biased point of view, it tasted good! even my mom agreed that i did a good job... which is definitely, another biased opinion. she probably knew i would never bake again if she said something else.

and now i'm running out of recipes. i'd like to try baking brownies from scratch and not the ready-made mix often seen in groceries. i want to make food for the gods too, a personal favorite. but i have yet to find the recipe...hopefully the same recipe becky's kitchen uses.
