I just got this email: When decent people are taken for a ride, this is the result! A little background: Neiman-Marcus, if you don't know already,is a very expensive store they sell your typical $8.00 T-shirt for $50.00. THIS IS A TRUE STORY! My daughter and I had just finished a salad at a Neiman-Marcus Cafe in Dallas , and we 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, but you can buy The Recipe.' Well, I asked how much,and she responded; 'Only two fifty - it's agreat deal!' I agreed to that, and told her to just add it to my Tab. Thirty days later, I received my VISA statement,and the Neiman-Marcus Charge 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 was outrageous! I called Neiman's Accounting Department and told them the waitress said it was 'two fifty', which clearly does not mean 'two hundred and fifty dollars' by any reasonable 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 the Accounting Department lady the criminal statutes which govern fraud in the State of Texas . I threatened \ to report them to the Better Business Bureau and the Texas Attorney General's office for engaging in fraud. I was basically told, ' Do what you want. Don't bother thinking of how you can get even, and don't bother trying to get any of your money back.' I just said, 'Okay, you folks got my $250, and now I'm going to have $250 worth of fun.' I told her that I was going to see to it that every Cookie Lover in the United States with an e-mail account has a $250 cookie recipe from Neiman-Marcus...for free.' She replied, 'I wish you wouldn't do this.' I said, 'Well, perhaps you should have thought of that before you ripped me off!' and slammed down the phone. So here it is! Please, please, please pass it on to everyone you can possibly think of. I paid $250 for this, and I don't want Neiman-Marcus to EVER make another penny off of this recipe! NEIMAN-MARCUS COOKIES (Recipe may be halved) 2 cups butter 24 oz. Chocolate chips 4 cups flour 2 cups brown sugar 2 tsp. Soda 1 tsp. Salt 2 cups sugar 1 - 8 oz. Hershey Bar (grated) 5 cups blended oatmeal 4 eggs 2 tsp.. Baking powder 2 tsp. Vanilla 3 cups chopped nuts (your choice) Measure oatmeal, and blend in a blender to a fine powder. 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 PLEASE READ THE RECIPE AND SEND IT TO EVERY PERSON YOU KNOW WHO HAS AN E-MAIL ADDRESS! THIS IS REALLY TERRIFIC!! Even if the people on your e-mail list don't eat sweets, send it to them and ask them to pass it on. Let's make sure we get this lady's $250.00 worth. Enjoy the cookies, they really are good.

Just in case anyone wants them here is the actual Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe. You can grab it right from their website for free. NEIMAN-MARCUS Chocolate Chip Cookies Ingredients # 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened # 1 cup light brown sugar # 3 tablespoons granulated sugar # 1 large egg # 2 teaspoons vanilla extract # 1-3/4 cups all purpose flour # 1/2 teaspoon baking powder # 1/2 teaspoon baking soda # 1/2 teaspoon salt # 1-1/2 teaspoons instant espresso coffee powder # 1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips Directions 1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Cream the butter with the sugars using an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy (approximately 30 seconds) 2. Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract for another 30 seconds. 3. In a mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients and beat into the butter mixture at low speed for about 15 seconds. Stir in the espresso coffee powder and chocolate chips. 4. Using a 1 ounce scoop or a 2 tablespoon measure, drop cookie dough onto a greased cookie sheet about 3 inches apart. Gently press down on the dough with the back of a spoon to spread out into a 2 inch circle. Bake for about 20 minutes or until nicely browned around the edges. Bake a little longer for a crispier cookie. Yield: 2 dozen cookies I have other recipes but I have to dig through some boxes to find them. Maybe I will do so this weekend. :) Everyone else keep them coming I've grabbed a few that sound really good.

Thanks all for sharing your recipes! Now I could use some that will travel well too- last year I sent out packages of cookies and some ended up demolished and a little melted. I need to figure out a better solution this year...

Govoni My grandma always made cherry winks too. Now I bake them every Christmas. Here is a "new" recipe I made last year and it won our official taste test with the kids on our cookie baking day. Nutella Ravioli Ingredients * 1 (18 ounce) package refrigerated sugar cookie dough * 1/2 cup nutella, spread * 3 tablespoons chocolate chips Directions 1 Preheat oven to 350°F 2 Roll out cookie dough to about a 1/4 inch thickness. 3 Using a cookie cutter or a glass dipped in flour, cut out rounds. (I used a 2 3/4 inch round cookie cutter.). 4 Using a piping bag or plastic bag with the end snipped off, pipe about 1/2 teaspoon of Nutella into the center of each round. 5 Fold rounds over to create half moon shapes and gently seal edges. 6 Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 9-10 minutes. Remove to racks and cool completely. 7 When cookies are completely cooled, melt chocolate chips in microwave (about 1 minute.). Remove and using a fork, drizzle chocolate over cookies.

Rum balls?? I've never made them, but here's a recipe from cooks.com

RUM OR BOURBON BALLS

1 c. powdered sugar
1/3 c. rum or bourbon
1/4 c. light corn syrup
2 1/2 c. crushed vanilla wafers (food processor makes this step easy!)
1 c. chopped pecans

Stir together powdered sugar, alcohol and corn syrup. Then add the crushed wafers and chopped nuts. Mix until evenly moistened and pinch a walnut sized piece and roll it firmly between the palms of your hands, repeat until all balls have been made. Then sift 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon cocoa powder onto a plate, roll the balls in the powder until evenly coated. Store in an airtight tin with doilies or wax paper between layers. Recommend candy sized Christmas cups for serving.
Makes about 20 balls.

My extended family gets a tin of treats every year for their gifts. I make toffee,macaroons,candied pecans,fudge,snowball cookies,and assorted mini muffins. No the kids don't help. They are 14 and 12 and they are good for maybe 10 min. and then the complaining begins. That and when I get started I get in the zone and hate anyone in my kitchen when I get like that.LOL I do make a gingerbread house every year that my kids and husband decorate. It's a tradition around here that they still like.

Yum...I'm already hungry and reading this thread is just making my mouth water. LOL Going to have to try out some of these recipes. Now for another question.. Previous years I've always made a lot of cookies and treats about 2 weeks before Christmas and gave out most of them, but this year I dont think I'll be giving many, so what do you all do with most of the cookies? In other words, do you freeze them? Do they freeze well? If you freeze, dont they get soggy when you thaw them out? I love to make cookies, but am worried about wasting them. Please share some ideas about keeping them as well!

*you can also add a few craisins to this and make them pretty good for christmas just take out a few of the raisins and a few chocolate chips! Oatmeal Raisin Cookies 1 cup raisins 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened 2 cups light brown sugar 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 2 large eggs 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon Pinch grated nutmeg 1/4 cup buttermilk 2 cups quick-cooking oats (not instant or old-fashioned) 3/4 cup chopped toasted pecans 3/4 cup white chocolate chips Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease 2 large baking sheets and set aside. Place the raisins in a medium bowl and cover with boiling water. Let sit until plump and moist, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain well. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the vanilla extract and eggs, and beat to combine. Into a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir into the butter mixture, and add the buttermilk, stirring to mix. Fold in the oatmeal, raisins, nuts, and chips, blending well. Drop the dough onto the baking sheets by rounded tablespoons, spacing them 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool on the sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool.
