Here are a couple to get you started:

Chocolate Orange Cardamom Cookies
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp cardamom

Whisk dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl, place:

3/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 Tbsp orange zest

Cream until fluffy. Add:

1 egg
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Beat well. Stir in flour mixture.

Form dough into a 2 inch diameter log and wrap in wax paper. Chill in fridge for at least one hour.

Brush log with beaten egg white. Roll log in demerara sugar.

Slice cookies 1/4 inch thick. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.

Apricot Almond Truffles
1/2 cup whole unsalted almonds, toasted
1 1/2 cup dried Turkish apricots
1 Tbsp honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp salt
3 oz good dark chocolate, chopped

Pulse almonds in food processor till coarsely chopped. Add apricots, honey, cinnamon, ginger, and salt; process about 45 seconds till ingredients are finely chopped and beginning to stick together.

Roll fruit and nut mixture into balls (about a heaping teaspoonful each) and set on wax paper.

Melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave. Roll balls in melted chocolate and place on wax paper. Chill in fridge till firm.

Both of these recipes are more "adult" in flavor and form than the cookies I used to make with the kiddos.

I like to make these http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Pumpkin-Chocolate-Chip-Cookies- III/Detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=pumpkin %20chocolate%20chip%20cookies&e8=Quick%20Search&even t10=1&e7=%2fmy%2frecipebox%2fdefault.aspx&soid=sr_re sults_p1i2Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies from Allrecipes.

This year I want to make http://jamiecooksitup.net/2011/12/chewy-gingerbread-bars/gingerbread bar cookies from Jamie Cooks it Up.

We always make a batch of fudge, 7 layer cookies (with sweetened condensed milk) and pumpkin roll. This year, dd will do most of the baking since she'll be home and I'm working.

I take some to church gatherings, some to my mom (who doesn't bake any more) and some to my sister or sister-in-law when we visit. I still have a teenaged boy, too, and he eats plenty. Very Happy
