“Neiman Marcus” Cookie

I needed to take still life shots for photography class, so I decided there’s no better still life than a freshly baked cookie.  I’d been holding onto the famed Neiman Marcus cookie recipe for years and just happened to have all the ingredients on hand, so it was the logical choice.  The cookies were tasty and chewy, but very dry.
