Considering how much I truly adore cookies, it is a spectacular feat of will power that I don’t make them all that often. When I do actually make a batch of dough, I usually bake only a few at a time and freeze the rest to be baked as needed, an extra safety measure in that whole will power business.
However, some days just require cookies. For example, days that look like the scene above. Enter salted brown sugar toffee cookies. They are on the low maintenance side of the cookie spectrum (waving hi to macarons and sugar cookies with royal icing far on the other end!) These use basic fridge and pantry items (a necessity in a snow storm), and the dough mixes up in no time. Despite their simplicity, they are certainly not lacking in flavor. A nice balance of sweet and salty, they are the perfect comfort food kind of cookie. This, people, is why you run to the store for milk before a storm.
