I love to cook but am not much of a baker. I love making Christmas cookies, but..... My dad is currently working in Afghanistan (he's a civilian working for the Dept of Defense) I usually send him biscotti- he loves it, I have found a bunch of different combos (sweet and savory) and it ships really well because it's already hard! He has requested home baked goodies for the holidays - he'll share with service members he works with, not just for him. I have a couple recipes I know I'll do - stollen biscotti, gingerbread biscotti, savory cranberry & thyme biscotti, sweet & spicy pecans....But none of my other "go to" Christmas recipes seem like they'll ship well (peanut blossoms - chocolate kisses will melt, etc) Snickerdoodles might work. So if anyone has experience with things that will ship well - please let me know!!! Peppermint candy cane something or other? (I plan to bake next weekend in the hopes that I *might* be able to get stuff delivered in time, but shipping can take 2-6 weeks, I never know) Thanks!!
