Something about the blustery weather that much of the country is about to face makes staying inside and cooking so much fun.

These bite-sized favorites pair wonderfully with a lemon tea. Plus, this is one of the best cookies to freeze for later, because you can let them thaw and fill them just before serving. They retain their light and airy texture beautifully.
