The story goes, that a customer of Neiman Marcus (a very expensive shop in New York) bought the recipe for this cookie in the restaurant of this shop, thinking he paid $2.50. He was shocked when he found out that he was charged for $250 afterwards and decided therefore, that for such a price he might as well share the recipe with the whole world.
