Homemade Cookies Day ~ October 1st
National Homemade Cookies Day is celebrated every year on October first. There is something about the texture, taste, and smell of homemade cookies that you just cannot get from the store-bought kind. Around here, homemade cookies are the norm. When my husband and I first did grocery shopping together we wandered down the aisle that the cookies were in. He reached over and grabbed not one, but two different packages of cookies. I said, “What are you doing?” to which he looked very confused and very slowly said “getting…cookies?” I then proceeded to explain to him that cookies are baked, not bought at the store. He then put the dry, crunchy chocolate chip cookies back (not the Oreos though, you simply have to buy Oreos). When I looked up from our little exchange there was a woman across the aisle grinning at us. She must have either agreed with me or just caught onto the levity of the situation as neither of us was really being very serious about any of it. Cookies are much better home-baked however, that part is very true and now while he still buys the occasional package of Oreos for us, most of our cookies are homemade.
The best way to celebrate Homemade Cookies Day is to bake cookies. Any kind of cookie will do so pick your favorite kind or find a new recipe and try something different.
Here are some cookie recipes to get you started on this delicious day.
