    Is there a way to say "the one [out of a set] which/who...", when the relative clause can't be compacted into a single adjective? For example, "I'd like the one with chocolate chips inside and cherries on top." Is there any other way than the obvious, English way "haexad she..."? Is "ze she..." restricted to sentences like "I (not another) am the one who...", or is "ze she" "the one who", not "which"?

    EDIT: I messed up the example... if I wanted to say "I want the one which doesn't have cherries on top" would it be OK to say "ani rotze et ze sheein lo duvdevanim milemaale"?

    I think most of us would say: אני רוצה את זה עם שבבי השוקולד והדובדבנים מלמעלה.

    אני רוצה את זאת שאין לה דובדבן למעלה

    אני רוצה את העוגייה ללא הדובדבן למעלה. literary
