What are some yummy treats I could bring to a charity Christmas Tea?

My charity has a well-attended Christmas Tea every year with all the "tea fare" provided by the volunteers. In the past I've brought chocolate-macadamia nut cookies and pimiento cheese sandwiches, but I'd like some new ideas.

Spiced walnuts/pecans. Simple to make, a bit unusual, and always a hit.

A nice cracker with cream cheese or goat cheese and a dollop of hot pepper jelly. Most pepper jellies come in festive red or green. The cheese cuts the heat. Very tasty - make extra.

The Blue Cheese and Fig Savouries (a winner for Best Holiday Open House Dish) are outstanding, and different -- but delicious!! http://www.food52.com/recipes... Try to use a blue cheese that doesn't have much actual "blue" in it, though, because a lot of blue + yellow butter = green cookies. Tasty green cookies, but not as pretty as the ones in the photograph! ;o)

Off the top of my head recipes I have tasted at Food52 gatherings in the past couple of months that are unforgettable and delicious
are http://www.food52.com/recipes... by Syronai.

Hardlikearmour has pickled prunes that are amazing - I would never have thought of that recipe and tasting it was such a treat http://www.food52.com/recipes...

Thirdchild has an olive recipe that is incredible and I especially love them because they are baked http://www.food52.com/recipes...

I'd have to say the Barefoot Contessa's Maple Oatmeal Scones. I've made them about 50 times and they are consistantly the best ever. Fairly healthy (if you use steel cut oats and don't count the butter). They are still soft after days sitting on the counter wrapped in plastic and also freeze wonderfully. The recipe makes a lot if you have them only about 3/4" high so you'd have some for your family too.
