Need help choosing a chocolate cookie for my Holiday boxes!

AGM_Cape_Cod | Nov 30, 2012 05:16 AM

This is my current list (which has a number of reoccurring items on it:). In the time between Thanksgiving I make about 80 dozen cookies. I make all my doughs in advance and bake as I need boxes. I use the Takealong containers to pack the cookies and candies (except the caramel corn). It isn't elegant but I ship them around the country and have had no complaints.

Apricot Foldovers
Lemon Stars
Champagnebrod- a press cookie filled with apricot jam
Macadamia Lime cookies
gingerbread people for the half eaten cookie cutters a warped friend gave me

candied orange, lemon & grapefruit rind
caramel corn (vats!!!)
almond buttercrunch
white chocolate, pistachio craisin bark

I have decide to change my biscotti to one with orange rind and pecans, add a dried cherry & pistachio icebox cookie and now need a chocolate cookie. NO ROLL cookies since I already have two that take a lot of time to make. These are the ones I am considering:

Any comments, suggestions or snarks? TIA
