I need a good recipe for Thanksgiving dessert?

Question by lonelyheart07: I need a good recipe for Thanksgiving dessert?
I am in charge of desserts this year. My Grandmother is bringing pumpkin pie as per usual. I have to make cookies because there is someone in the family that will only eat chocolate chip cookies. I was thinking something chocolately or fruity or both or anything really. My big problem is I won’t get home until 4 in the morning from work with dinner starting at noon, so I was looking for something that I could make like the Sunday before or Wednesday before work, but this is just a preference not a requirement. Thanks for your help in advance!

    Chocolate Chip and Dried Fruit Cookies

    2 sticks unsalted butter              
    1/4 teaspoon salt                        
    3/4 cup granulated white sugar
    2/3 cup dark brown sugar        
    3 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 eggs    
    1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour                                        
    1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
    3/4 teaspoon baking powder  
    1 1/3 cups rolled oats
    1 cup chocolate chips
    1 cup mixed dried fruit

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. With a beater attachment, using either a mixer or hand-held mixer, beat butter, salt, white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy.

    Add eggs 1 at a time until incorporated, then flour, baking soda and baking powder and mix until smooth.

    In a food processor, finely grind the rolled oats and add to the dough, mixing until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips and dried fruit, and mix until incorporated into the batter.

    Bake cookies in oven evenly spaced on a greased cookie sheet tray for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 3 dozen.
