“You may have heard this story… A woman asks to buy a cookie recipe and is told it will cost ‘two-fifty.’ She thinks this means $2.50, but then she gets her credit card bill back and finds out it is $250.00. Outraged, she spreads the recipe far and wide to try and get her money’s worth. I first heard this story 6 years ago and was given a recipe on a sheet of paper which bore the date ‘1986.’ The supposed originator of the recipe was a well-known cookie company. I have since heard this tale again several times, with the recipe originating from different upscale department stores. True story? Who knows, but it’s a darn good cookie. Here’s my version.”
