My husband and I attend a cookie exchange every year. I LOVE baking cookies and have several favorites which I've brought throughout the years. The problem is that even though I like them and think they are great, they aren't usually very popular with the other attendees.
Here's what I've made:
Mint Chocolate Chip Bonbon Cookies
Russian Teacakes aka Mexican Wedding Cookies
My husband doesn't really like cookies or have any favorites, but his are always very popular. So far, he's done confetti meringues (with M&Ms), Peanut Butter Cookie Cups with a Reese's Mini Cup in the center and Butter Toffee Cookies.
I would really like to make gumdrop cookies, but everyone turns their nose up at them when I mention it. I think it's because I'm from the South originally, but now live in California and no one has ever heard of gumdrops. My husband has absolutely no idea what to bring, but I want something easy because I'm usually the one that has to make most of them.
Do y'all have any suggestions? Drop or slice cookies would be good as I won't have a lot of time to spend on baking them and I need a TON!
