Just in time for your back-to-school baking, I present a mini-list of cookies any kid would want in his or her lunchbox.
1) Copycat Compost Cookies. Visions of lunchbox-size baggies of chips and pretzels instantly transport me back to my elementary school cafeteria, which is perfect because pretzels and chips are exactly what I used in this recipe.
2) Cranberry Crunch Cookies. My award-winning recipe will take away all traces of first-day jitters.
3) PB & Jelly Cookies. The classic sandwich in cookie form.
4) Sweater Weather Cookies. Because these remind me of those warm, early fall days at the beginning of school.
These are just a few that called out to me. I'm sure there are other lunch-worthy cookies on The List. Try a few (or a lot). Consider it fun and tasty homework!
