What would be the ONE baked good you’d just die to have delivered to you?
In all seriousness, I’m baking goodies for a friend of Darling Husband and I’s tonight who is deployed to Iraq. His wife is kitchen challenged so she put me in charge of his Christmas baked goods box
So far i have pecan pie bars and fudgy brownies–two of his favorites. She said he likes nuts in his baked goods. What else should I throw in there? I’m packing this flat shipping box to the max, dammit!

Chocolate and peanut butter fudge. Mmmm.
P.S. What a sweet (no pun intended) gesture!

Hmm… depends on what type of island – if it were a tropical island, then key lime pie, hands down.
What about Magic Cookie Bars? Google it, I’m sure a lot of recipes would come up – also called 7 layer bars!

Yeah it definitely has to package up and ship nicely. Cakeballs would be great, but would probably not arrive safely =]

I’m a cookie freak! So, mine would be cookies. Either chocolate chip and/or shortbread!

Cupcakes! I know that won’t work, but it’s what I’d want! But that won’t work for your purposes. Otherwise brownies, but I see you have those, so I’d opt for lemon bars but I don’t know how well those travel?
Sorry. I seem to be more of a hinderance than a help!
ETA: Actually, maybe you can send cupcakes with a can of frosting???

I’m with teaandtoast–oatmeal cookies. They’re my favorites, but they always remind me of the holidays and of being at home, even if I eat them in the middle of summer :).

Mmmmm cakeballs are delish! But I think I would want Pizzelles, or some chocolate chip cookies.

You are so awesome! What a sweet idea! Could you make a chocolate chip cookie bar with walnuts? I’m thinking bars not cookies, for shipping reasons…. I love rice crispy treats, but I don’t think they’d hold up well and might get stale…. what about making candied nuts and filling in the spaces? 🙂 I’m a sucker for anything peanut butter and chocolate – if he likes peanut butter… that might be the route to take to round out the box!

Those everything cookie bars called “magic bars” that have chocolate chips, butterscotch, pecans, coconut… I love those things.

Fudge brownies would be my first choice, but you have already done that. I also love the cookies with the Andes mint bits in them. Or what about rice crispy treats? They would atleast be easy to ship. Hope that helps!

@BanditGirl: my first reaction was cupcakes too. I eat waaaaaaay too many cupcakes.
