Homemade Cookie Day

Everyone could use a little extra sweetness in their lives this year, so tie on your apron, preheat your oven, and celebrate National Homemade Cookie Day on October 1 by baking a batch or two of your favorite cookies!

Did you know that the average person consumes almost 19 thousand cookies in their lifetime? It might not come as a surprise, since families have been passing down recipes in this country for generations! Everyone has a favorite cookie that reminds them of fond memories and the people they love.

Bake up a batch of your favorite cookie as a gift for your family, neighbors, coworkers, and friends! The sweetness of the cookie and the nostalgia combined may brighten their whole day.

Baking tips for first-timers:

  • A great cookie starts with a strong foundation: the dough!
  • Cream the butter and sugar together to create a smooth, fluffy mixture,
    so the sugar isn’t grainy.
  • Beat in each egg separately, one at a time.
  • Add your dry flour mix in last to create your dough.
  • Once you have the dough, the possibilities are endless! Add your favorite nut, chocolate, dried fruit, or frosting to create your own signature cookie.
  • Try using uniquely-shaped cookie-cutters for some extra fun!
