Post Cookie Tasting Analysis

The first batch of Rolo Cookies are done! They look delicious and don't taste half bad, but after the taste test and some serious post cookie scoffing analysis I've concluded that the recipe needs some tweeking. Sufficient to say that it's about 30 minutes since I ate half of one and I'm still riding the sugar high! Needless to say I won't be trying out this batch on Gracie, and I wouldn't recommend eating them just before bed.

I think the problem is that the original recipe called for plain/dark chocolate so there's a lot of sugar in it to counteract the bitterness. Obviously that's not the case when you sneakily put in Rolo chunks instead of chocolate chunks. I'll try again with more flour and less sugar for the next batch. So recipe posting will have to wait until it's perfected.
