The cookbook has this note: As its name suggests, $250.00 Cookies are very, very rich. About 15 years ago, Kathy Blalock said her boss brought a tin of very expensive cookies back to the office from a business trip. Later, one of her co-workers found the recipe and they jokingly started calling them “the $250.oo cookies” every time a batch was made and brought to the office. The name stuck and so did everyone’s taste for these exquisite cookies.
