I got this story to my e-mail today. Hope the story is true, because I help a little this lady to get her revenge :flickoff: by putting this on the forum....
And if somebody of you try this recipe, please tell, if the biscuits were worth of... $$$
one thing bothers me: when she payed with Visa, didn´t she get any receipt.....


BISCUIT RECIPE
This is a true story. Please forward when you finish reading!
A little background: Neiman-Marcus, if you don't know already, is a very expensive shop; I.e. they sell a typical $8.00 t-shirt for $50.00.Let's let them have it! THIS IS A TRUE STORY

My daughter and I had just finished lunch at a Neiman-Marcus Cafe in Dallas.
Because both of us are such biscuit lovers, we decided to try the "Neiman-Marcus cookie". It was so excellent that I asked if they would give me the recipe. The waitress said with a small frown, "I'm afraid not, but you can BUY the recipe." I asked how much, and she responded; "Only two fifty - it's a great deal!" I agreed to that, and told her to add it to my bill. Thirty days later, I got my VISA statement, and the Neiman-Marcus charge was $285.00. I looked at it again, and I remembered I had only spent
$9.95 for two sandwiches and about $20.00 for a scarf. 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 had 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."

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.

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 said, OK, you've 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 world with an e-mail account gets a $250 cookie recipe from Neiman-Marcus... For free.
She replied, "I wish you wouldn't do that." 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 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 from this recipe!

You are not a fool at all....The web is full of mis-information, one just has to be careful.

Hehe I was hoping you can bake and send me some since I can't bake :D

Well, obviously, if you are more than 50 kg and can't ride on the back of the Brutale, you must get one for your self! I'm sure Mike wouldn't mind another one.
