To dispel the urban legend of the $250 recipe in the infamous chain letter, Neiman Marcus created an actual recipe for chocolate chip cookies and displayed it on the Neiman Marcus website. Since I get so many request for that formula, I've posted the real Neiman Marcus chocolate chip cookie recipe here.

Made these for my office & my sister's office as well & they were a big hit. Wonderful taste & even better when dipped in a cup of coffee!

These cookies were the best I've ever made. My children take them when I'm not looking and they are gone fast. I have never gotten anything but good comments on these cookies.
