Neiman Marcus Fishing Cookies

I know, it seems like an oxymoron...
Neiman Marcus and fishing are not typically words in the same sentence.
But believe me when I say, it is a magical combination!

Legend has it that a woman asked for the infamously delicious Neiman Marcus Cookie recipe and was charged $250 for it when she received her credit card bill.
I was given a copy years ago under the guise that it was the top secret, pricy recipe.
I have been making it for years, 
not only because it makes incredible oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, 
but also because it yields a boatload of them!

Flash forward to this summer.
My husband and son have become addicted to salmon fishing 
and have had quite a few adventures at sea on a local charter boat.  
It is customary on said boat, to bring a big "school" of cookies,
 for the crew and fisherman to enjoy....
and so the Neiman Marcus Fishing Cookies were spawned!

Of course after a long day of reeling them in, 
you're going to be hungry, right?

and you need a high end cookie to go with that million dollar view.

Even when not fishing, we've fallen for them hook, line and sinker...

You have to catch some!
