Recipes for cookies that hold up well in the mail?

I wanted to send my grandmother some cookies in the mail. I can do the next day shipping if it's recommended. I have no experience doing this so any advice is greatly appreciated.

My grandmother doesn't really care for chocolate and cannot eat seeds or nuts. She does like lemon and apricot flavored cookies as well as most fruit filled cookies. I'd prefer something that looks cute if possible--I'm pretty good with delicate work. Thanks!
