Years ago, shortly after I got my very first email account, I received a chain email entitled “The $250-dollar cookie recipe.” It’s about how a woman goes to a department store café, tastes an amazing cookie, and asks to buy the recipe for the price of two-fifty, which she believes to be $2.50, but turns out to be $250. In a revenge of sorts, she emails the recipe to everyone show knows. Enamored by the story (and the wonder of email!) I saved the recipe and fully intended to make the cookies. I finally got around to testing out the now classic recipe. It’s a solid cookie, which urban legend or not, satisfies any sweet tooth!
