Almond Joy Cookies– I don’t eat many candy bars, but when I do indulge in a bar from our Halloween treats, Almond Joy is at the top of my list. Taking the main components of those candy bars and transforming them into a cookie was a delicious choice. All of the coconut and almond, plus a little bit of milk chocolate, make for a cookie that is hard to resist. This recipe has not been through the shipping test. Let me know if you try.
Apple Pie Cookies– As a person who doesn’t get excited about pie crust but who loves the filling, these cookies are just my thing. Full of apples and spice, they are a handheld way to enjoy the flavors of apple pie. This recipe has been tested and passed the long distance shipping test.
Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies– A piece of candy and a cookie all in one package? That’s what these cookies are. Not only are they delicious, but they also ship well. Trust me, I’ve tested them over thousands of miles.
Trail Mix Bar Cookies– I enjoy the way all of the flavors and textures in trail mix work together. Tart dried cranberries, crunchy nuts, sweet white chocolate chips make for a delicious combination. You know where else they work well? In a bar cookie. Yep, these passed the shipping test as well.
