If you've ever had Rita's cookies, you know they look nothing like this.
Right away when they came out of the oven, though, I knew something was wrong. For one, they were way too big. For two, the color didn't look the same, and to make matters worse, the chocolate sauce that goes on top the cherry had oozed down to the pan and sort of burned. The cookies stuck to the cookie sheet - and I've never had cookies stick to the cookie sheet. Oh, well, maybe they'll taste the same, I thought. But, no, they don't. Except I thought they didn't taste chocolatey enough, but Chris said they taste too chocolatey. Huh? It's not that they're so bad they're inedible, but they're definitley different. The other night when Chris was in the kitchen and I asked him to bring me one, he said "I'll bring you as many as you want. I don't think I'm having any more of them." Oh, my husband, never one to mince his words.
