My Grandma used to say that Cookies were the original comfort food, and I can't disagree. There are few situations that a plate of cookies does not improve. Cookies can be simple, one bowl, instant gratification treats that require basic ingredients and a few minutes of your time. They can also be intricate, artistic culinary projects meant to impress and inspire. From the most perfect chocolate chip cookie to brightly colored Christmas cookies, happiness is baking (and eating!) cookies.
