A friend or family member asks you to chip in a dish for Thanksgiving dinner — now what? This can get tricky, especially if you’ve got a long car or train ride ahead of you. Here are some things to consider before you decide what to tote along.

No cookie tray would be complete without an oatmeal option. These crunchy cookies combine vitamin E-rich nuts and high-fiber oatmeal with a touch of ginger — all for only 70 calories and 4.5 grams of fat (2 grams of saturated fat). We like the Food Network Kitchens’ presentation idea; just wrap them in some festive ribbon and you’ve got a take-home treat for party guests.
(P.S.: Don’t forget to give friends with allergies a heads up on the pecans.)

These are chewy, not crunchy — perfect for the younger kids in the family.
