Going to make a BIG bunch of cookies Thursday for some hard workin' guys& gals doing nasty work. I'd like to make 10 to 12 dozen good sized (4")cookies.
Need simple yet energy-packed cookies that transport and travel well. Will wrap each if necessary.
Simple recipes = mo' betta. But I shy away from cake mix recipes cause of the weird chemically off-flavors. Maybe you have a brand that you like?
Bar cookies that can be made in 1/2 sheet pans a plus. Or drop cookies. I have lots of add-ins if needed.
Your ideas, please, 'Hounds!
Magic Layer Bars/Seven Layer Bars/Nanaimo Bars are always a hit... just google 'em.
Rice Krispie Treats, while low-brow to some, are also popular, and you could coat em in chocolate if you so desire, but I like em unadulterated.
Energy packed. How about a ' power bar' which is baked in sheets then cut? Many good recipes out there, some with peanut butter etc. Agree about no cake mixes. Quick individually-wrapped idea: pop each one into a snack size zipbag. Or wax paper of course.
Oatmeal Cookies on the Quaker Box. Easy and healthy. You can add lots of good stuff, like: nuts, chocolate chips, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, grated coconut, orange peel...almost a meal in a cookie. You can make these big, but you'll probably have to double the recipe.
You can do the same with blondies, recipe on the Hershey Toll House Morsel bag.
thank you all for your replies. Unfortunately, logistics were too complicated to deliver the cookies.
I particularly want to try the pumpkin cookies. And Alton Brown's idea for using puffed brown rice for the Krispie Treats.
Couple times a year I make goodie packs for our local fire team, CDF, as they are the first responders in our small community for everything from fires to stuck-in-the-bathtub. They are the greatest, so I'll use these ideas for the next treat basket.
Thanks to you all.
