I Don’t Care, and if You Do...God Help You

"This year, Cindy McCain sent in a recipe for oatmeal butterscotch cookies, while Michelle Obama opted for a very original and different kind of cookie from an old family recipe: shortbread cookies with a kick that contain lemon, orange, and Amaretto. So far Cindy McCain's oatmeal cookie recipe has been winning the hearts of Family Circle readers, but she could be facing a bit of a cookie controversy." many ways are there to make cookies? I mean, really now? I figured all these recipes were stolen from someone, but more importantly, I just don’t care.

"...that was an almost exact replica of one posted on Hershey's website"

All cookies are "almost" like other cookies.

Ay. There is the rub.

That little "almost". You add an ingredient or two, subtract another, et, la voila, a new cookie is born, with new rights to cookie glory. Often the genius of a cookie is in the change of an ingredient from some original and well-tested recipe.

I'd have Cindy's simple traditional cookies anytime - they sound nicer than Michelle's Cookies with a Kick - seriously - lemon and Amaretto?!
