    Can anyone help me please, I am going to be doing as many kinds of cookies as possible for neighbourhood barbecue planned for next Sunday after church; but it's been hot and humid here, which doesn't help when trying to bake?
    I have a few no bake varieties picked out; but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. :confused:
    Thank you in advance.

    I'd go with varieties that people don't expect to be crisp, such as oatmeal-raisin, brownies/blondies, maybe even shortbreads. The more I think about it, just about any cookies that are okay chewy would work. No meringue kisses, no tuiles, nothing chocolate-dipped, of course, but many others should be fine. You can always tell people it's a new gourmet recipe ;)

    Ditto what Suzanne said. Some doughs can be prepped ahead of time and refrigerated, so you can bake them the day before, if time permits. If you're lucky enough to get a not-too-humid day, they may hold up for a day or two. Also, don't forget to pack in airtight containers.
