Short version of the story
behind the original cookie recipe....

Supposedly, someone asked Neiman Marcus / Mrs. Fields "how much" for the recipe for their chocolate chip cookies, and the answer was "two fifity." They thought two dollars and fifty cents was a good deal for the cookie recipe so charged it to their credit card.

When they received the statement it read two hundred fifty dollars! When they tried to get a refund for the mistake, Neiman Marcus / Mrs. Fields held their ground and refused a refund.

So out of spite the buyer decided to share the recipe with the world for free.....
