I am having a cookie swap party and am looking for something very different
to make. Any suggestions?

Without knowing what is usual to you, it's difficult to offer suggestions
for what might be different. However, I very much like florentine cookies.

http://www.cookierecipesonline.com/florentines.htm is a recipe for the usual
florentine cookie. The other type is a bar cookie, which often has a sugar
cookie crust and the same almond mixture as the usual cookie.

Or Langues de Chats that have been sandwiched with a white chocolate mint
flavoured filling. Yum!

Chocolate Delights

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups pecans, ground coarsely in food processor
7 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1/4 tsp. salt
2 extra large egg whites, slightly beaten*
1 tsp. vanilla


Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar,
pecans, cocoa, and salt. Add egg whites and vanilla and stir until mixture is
combined well. Spoon onto lightly oiled foil-lined sheets (or unbuttered
parchment) and bake 12 - 15 minutes or until the tops appear dry and light in
color. Let cool and remove from cookie sheet. Makes about 24 cookies.

*Be sure and use extra large egg whites - I've tried large and cookies don't
turn out as good.
