When cookies are deleted you really cant get them back.
Most cookies dont store lots of info.
I'm not aware of any way to get deleted cookies back.
Usually logging back into a site gets back most information associated with cookies. However, some locally stored settings might be lost.
If you were carrying these same cookies for a long time, you might be able to use Windows' "previous versions" feature to recover an earlier cookie database (cookies.sqlite). But there's a high enough chance of mismatched values that this might make it worse.
Oh wait, when I search for how to do this in Windows 8, I find that it was removed: Previous versions UI removed for local volumes (Windows). Sigh.
