Neiman Marcus Cookie Giveaway
Today was the 100th anniversary of Neiman Marcus. The retailer celebrated by giving away free chocolate chip cookies in most of its stores, as a tongue-in-cheek nod to the $250 Cookie Recipe legend that has caused it so much trouble over the years.

And if you missed the cookie giveaway, you can still download the recipe for its cookies free from its website. One of these days I'm going to have to try them out to see how they are. (via David Emery)

They're really good cookies. I work in the computer training industry where the NM cookie hoax is very well known. One of my colleagues cooked up a batch for a holiday party. Clever idea and tasty. grin
