You can't go wrong with a batch of cookies for a summer picnics. They're universally loved, perfectly packable, and impervious to sun damage (unlike our other favorite: ice cream). Here are ten cookie recipes that deserve to be at your next picnic. • Raspberry Cream Sandwich Cookies from Martha Stewart - Given our fondness for sandwich cookies, this one is a quick sell. • Louisiana Pecan Balls from Sunset Magazine - These sound deliciously similar to Mexican wedding cakes. • Watermelon Sugar Cookies from Megan's Cookin' - Too cute! • Cherry Double Chocolate Cookies from Gourmet - Chock full of cherries, chocolates, and crunchy nuts. • Peanut Butter Crunch Cookies from Real Simple - Classic peanut butter cookies pick up some crunch with rice krispies! • Black and White Cookies from Smitten Kitchen - I've always wanted to attempt making these classic New York cookies at home. • Petite Lemon Curd Cookies from Epicurious - I fear I may eat a great many of these "petite" cookies. • Lime Sugar Sandwich Cookies with Blueberry Cream Filling from Tasty Kitchen - I would make these for the bright purple filling alone. • Double Ginger Crackles from Fine Cooking - Perfect with a glass of lemonade. • Chocolate Nutella Cookies from Simply Recipes - This recipe is about the only reason I'd voluntarily part with a cup of Nutella.
