Personal Notes:
I got this recipe from an e-mail. Apparently, a very well known department store sells these cookies in their cafe. You can purchase the recipe. Supposedly, a woman thought she would be charged $2.50 for the recipe, but was charged $250! The store refused to refund her money, so she is e-mailing the recipe to everyone she knows. An urban legend for the Martha Stewart set!
