    Hey, I'm from New Jersey and we have a lot of fresh fruit in the summer, so any cookie with blueberries, peaches, or strawberries would fit. Blueberries are our state fruit, but I don't know any recipes.  Once Fall hits though, cranberries are everywhere. New Jersey is the 3rd largest producer of cranberries (right behind Massachusetts and Wisconsin). I found a recipe for Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies here: http://www.state.nj.us/jerseyfresh/recipes/njcrancookie.htm
    And if it doesn't work for New Jersey, maybe it would fit for another state. I know oatmeal cookies were mentioned before.
    Also, I know this isn't my place, and perhaps I'll get attacked too, but I don't think Madeleine09's comment was big deal.  Certainly not enough of a disruption to cause a problem...until it was explained and complained about. Maybe she didn't post a recipe because she didn't have one yet, or at all. Who cares? And maybe she saved someone (who is searching for that delicious fudge) from making a serious error in their travel plans in the future...

Cookies aren't exactly a southern tradition, but I found this recipie online. I'm not sure how coconut is southern, but its delicious, so I'm not complaining!

Alabama Cookies:

More coconut cookie recipes below.
INGREDIENTS:
1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar firmly packed
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
2 cups regular oats
2 cups chopped pecans
1 cup Rice Krispies
1 cup flaked coconut
PREPARATION:
Cream shortening, gradually add sugars, beating well at medium speed of mixer. Add eggs and vanilla, beating well. Combine flour and salt, add to creamed mixture, mixing well. Stir in oats and remaining ingredients.

Drop dough by heaping teaspoons onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 325 for 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool slightly on cookie sheets, remove to wire rack to cool completely.
Makes about 6 dozen cookies.

I found this website. http://www.foodtimeline.org/foodfaq4.html#official
Unfortunately Delaware is only known for Scrapple (a weird meat-like product) and Crab Puffs according to that website. Neither of which make a good cookie. You could find a way to make a "polluted water" cookie, since we're known for that one too. A semi-decent idea would be plain sugar cookies in the shape of 1, since it's the first state. Sorry I couldn't be much help for Delaware.

EDITED WITH BRILLIANCE (11/16):
 I can't believe I didn't think about this before. Every year Delaware does this thing called "Pumpkin Chunkin". (http://www.punkinchunkin.com/main.htm) Basically they make these contraptions to see who can fling the pumpkin the farthest. So why not pumpkin cookies? I made these a few weeks ago and they turned out great. They taste like pumpkin pie with a cake-y texture. They are a bit greasy though.

Pumpkin Cookies

1/4 cup butter softened
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup pumpkin puree
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
4 tsp. cinnamon*
2 tsp. nutmeg*

Preheat oven to 350F. Cream together butter, oil, and sugar. Beat in egg, vanilla, and pumpkin. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Combine flour mix gradually with pumpkin mix. Put golf ball size balls onto ungreased cookie sheet and flatten a bit. Bake for about 10 minutes.

* Bake a few cookies and taste. Add more cinnamon and nutmeg as desired.

I'm still loving the MR. T sock monkey and thanks for the Alabama recipe!   I would encourage people to included a recipe even if they see their state (obviously don't include it - if it's the same cookie - but I can tell Ohioans love them some BUCKEYES!

Seriously... it's buckeye-CRAZY here.  I live in the capital city, so maybe that's why... but it's quite ridiculous the amount of buckeyes you see at parties, stores, etc.

Hi Everyone,

I think this is a cool idea and here is mine from GEORGIA.
This recipe was given to my by a friend and is different, not sure where she got it. 

GEORGIA LIZZIES

1 pound red candied cherries, halved
3 ounces green candied cherries, halved
1 pound candied pineapple, cut in pieces
1/2 pound pitted dates, chopped
1/2 pound golden raisins
1 pound pecan pieces
1/4 cup all-purpose flour, for the dredging fruits and nuts
1/4 pound butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 cup peach brandy

In 7 quart mixing bowl, dredge cherries, pineapples, date, raisins, and pecans with the 1/4 cup flour.  In a separate bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter and brown sugar until fluffy.  Add eggs, mix well.  Sift together 2 cups flour and baking soda.  Add flour mixture to butter mixture; mix.  Add milk and peach brandy, mix well.  Add the batter to dredge fruits and nuts; mix until fruits are incorporated.  Mixture will be very stiff.  This dough is more fruit then batter.  Drop dough by tablespoons onto well greased cookie sheets.  Bake in a preheated 275 degree oven 18 to 20 minutes, or until almost no imprint remains when touched lightly.

Variation: The recipe makes wonderful mini fruitcakes using the mini muffin cups and baking pans.  Use one tablespoon batter in each greased mini cup(a vegetable spray works better the solid shortening); decorate with a cherry half.  Bake in a preheated oven 275 degree oven 18 to 20 minutes.

I hope you will enjoy these.
Elli, Mableton, GA

I'm from Pennsylvania, the only state where residents regularly refer to it as letters.
P-A! So the state cookie is the chocolate chip, and yes there was heated debate on the subject, Here's a link to 20 good chocolate chip cookies.

Just wait until they begin debating over square dancing or polka as the state dance. Sadly, I'm not kidding.

http://www.kicked-up-cookie-recipes.com/butter-pecan-cookie-recipe.html

and last but not least  hubby is from Louisianna.  have to say the king cake is not a cookie  but  BY FAR  one of the best things Louisianna  makes!   but the  (I know I will spell this wrong but this is how it sounds)  benyeah,  those are really good.
Louisana is known for spicy hot stuff can't imagine taht in a  cookie.  But  some of their things are just plain old RICH!    but  hubby  likes  these
