Today's Reason to Celebrate

July 9, 2016 is
National Sugar Cookie Day

It’s National Sugar Cookie Day! Today, we celebrate a cookie that is seemingly simple, but totally delicious. Traditional sugar cookie recipes call for just six ingredients: sugar, flour, butter, eggs, vanilla, and baking powder.

Although sugar cookies are sometimes though of as plain, there is more than meets the eye. Use cookie cutters to create shaped sugar cookies, and top them with frosting or sprinkles. You can also make cookie sandwiches with two sugar cookies and fillings like marshmallow, melted chocolate, or jam.

To celebrate National Sugar Cookie Day, make a batch of homemade sugar cookies to share with friends and coworkers. Provide a variety of interesting decorations and let everyone personalize their bite-sized dessert!
