When it comes to desserts, cookies have a special place in our hearts for many reasons. It's the perfect bite for when you just want something sweet after a hearty meal. It can change your mood after a looong meeting or a fight with your partner. It's easier to store or carry around (unlike cake), and the joy of eating it lasts longer (unlike ice cream).
