Homemade Cookies Day

Today is Homemade Cookies Day! Rather than stop by the store for your favorite brand of cookie, bake up your own batch of cookies today! Whether you use a family recipe or browse online for a fun new recipe to try, today is the perfect day to bake up delicious cookies.

Cookies originated from extra cake batter that Dutch bakers experimented with cooking at varying oven temperatures. Eventually they got it right, realized how yummy they are, and named these tiny cakes "cookies!"

What's your favorite cookie ingredient - chocolate chips, peanut butter, nuts, sprinkles? There are too many types to name! To celebrate Homemade Cookies Day, find a great recipe and get creative in your kitchen today!
