Ok has anyone else tried these luscious little cakes of goodness? Well if you haven't you may just want to restrain yourself from ever trying them they are totally addicting. These are not like the oreos you are ate as a kid oh no my friends these are soft and cake like with tons of white creamy stuff in the middle. I would say that the white stuff in the middle is pretty much like the other cookie stuff but so much smoother and so much more of it. Now I have heard some others say that they are to sweet but to me there is no such thing. I haven't tried the chocolate yet since the regular chocolate on the outside white in the middle is so good why mess with perfection? If you try these and decide you don't like them feel free to send them my way!

I remember Sept. 11, 2001 like it was yesterday as I am sure many do and always will. Although I didn't lose anyone that I personally knew in the tragedies I did lose my best friend just a few short months later. I remember her coming over to my house (she lived only 2 doors down) and asking if I had seen the news. I of course was on the computer and had not. It only took one instant to have so may things taken from us. We lost not only many lives that day but America as a country lost some of it's innocence, our belief that we were such a strong country that no one would ever dare attack us here on our own soil. I remember sitting with my friend shedding countless tears for our country, for fallen hero's and a way of life we new would never be the same.
A few short months later I was shedding more tears of sorrow for my loss of a good friend I knew I could not replace and would not see for a long time. A woman who was practically a second mother to my son, who called her Aunt Hen. SO though I did not directly lose someone in the 9/11 tragedy some how for me they always will be connected. I spend the day remembering how many lost their lives so needlessly that day and how many hero's we lost. I also spend the day remembering an irreplaceable friend.
I miss you Hen!
