My English teacher is writing me a recommendation letter for college apps, so I told him I would bake him something fall-ish as a thank you. Which of these would be better? (Any other ideas?)

Make sure you hide whatever you bake. Wouldn't want anyone saying it was a bribe. (Sarcasm).

I was thinking something like that, but it's harder to carry a concealed pie to school, and then you just get mobbed... I go to school with 100 of the world's biggest food moochers ;)

If you go with ginger cookies, give him a jar of lemon curd to go with them.

Gingerbread is warmer, and more comforting.
