I'm looking for a cookie recipe that is easy to make and will transport well.
Because everyone wants more food around Thanksgiving, I'm looking for an easy, inexpensive cookie recipe that will satisfy a crowd of adults. Some kind of quick bread might also work, but I know that the host is already making a bunch of banana bread so that's out.
I love to bake and have a stand mixer, but I'm pretty short on time. I also don't have a lot of time to do a very elegant job of packing the cookies up. I'm hoping for something that is relatively easy to make and pack. I am a fairly OK baker, but would like a recipe that is pretty fool-proof.
I'd like to bring them on an airplane with me. I have limited space in my luggage and don't want to mess with packing things "just so" so that the cookies don't get crushed or ruined. I was thinking that jam bars or lemon bars would be perfect, but they're very crumbly and I think they would just fall apart when packed.
One of the people that will be there has a heart condition, so it would be nice if the recipe doesn't have too much fat in it. However, that's not a requirement -- if she can't eat them, I think that will be OK.
I also know that at least two of the people are huge chocolate fans, so if the recipe has chocolate in it that is a nice bonus as well.
Also! I need to make them tomorrow evening, start to finish, so I can't use any recipes that have you freeze the dough for hours. :( That leaves out my go-to oatmeal crispies
, or, sadly, world peace cookies
, which is what I had intended to make before I realized I was out of time.
