cookie woes

I went to a birthday party this weekend and thought I'd be nice and bring some cookies to share with the other guests. I had bought some cookie dough in a tub from one of my coworker's kids a while back as part of a school fund raiser and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to bust it out (and get it out of my fridge). I read the directions on the label of my chocolate chocolate chip cookies, preheated the oven and spooned the dough onto the cookie sheet for baking. Upon removing the cookies from the oven, I placed them on a paper towel for cooling and everything looked fine. I even tasted one and deemed it pretty good for pre-made cookie dough...

The problem came when I took the cookies off the paper towel and put them on a plate to take to the party. You see, chocolate chocolate chip cookies are a lovely dark brown color (like chocolate - duh), and when soft cookies are stacked on a plate to that color, they sort of melt into each other. Basically, I went to the door with what looked like a plate full of cow poo. :(

On the plus side, they did seem to taste good, so people ate them anyway! See? A happy story in the end!
