Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies

Updated: Sep 27, 2020

The famous Neiman Marcus Cookie Recipe comes with its own urban legend! The Neiman Marcus legend goes something like this. A woman was eating lunch at the Neiman Marcus cafe and enjoyed their cookies. So she asked the waitress for the recipe. She was told that the cost was “two fifty” and assumed that meant 2.50 cents. Then, later she received a charge on her card, $250 for the recipe. She then shares it with the world, and here we are today. What makes Neiman Marcus cookies different from other chocolate chip cookies? Blended oatmeal in the cookie dough is the key ingredient that gives these cookies just a little more texture and body.
