I'm also a fan of sending cookies in the mail.
So long as the recipe makes a lot of extras.
Unlike the seasonal stream of Amazon boxes from my annoyingly on-the-ball sister, which only engender feelings of inadequacy and panic in me, I loved getting these deliveries. The postal-borne bounty was the happy result of The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap**. To hold up my end of the deal, I turned to my already indispensable copy of Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy by Alice Medrich for inspiration, and was drawn immediately to this cookie recipe for three reasons:
a. They were supposed to keep and travel well.
b. I had all the requisite ingredients handy.
c. The photo in the cookbook made me drool like a St. Bernard on a hot day in July.
