When it gets cold outside, everyone flocks to soups, stews, and other warming things. What no one remembers: a warm cookie, fresh out of the oven, is just as good at staving off winter’s chill as a steaming bowl of soup. Crispy outside, chewy inside, gooey, melty chunks…you can’t go wrong.
Though we love and respect classic chocolate chip, oatmeal, and peanut butter, we have a few other suggestions for you. Forget the soup—these cookies (everything from buckeyes in cookie form to a cookie rendition of a boozy cherry cordial) are the best that we have, and they are all you need to warm up your winter.
