With the average person consuming nearly 19,000 cookies in their lifetime, it’s no wonder why we celebrate National Homemade Cookies Day!
Every year on October 1, bakers, homemakers, and cookie enthusiasts preheat their ovens to serve these delicious treats. With a variety of options to choose from, there is no limit to the types of cookies you can create in the comfort of your home.
ACTIVITIES OF THE NATIONAL HOMEMADE COOKIES DAY
Bake someone’s day
You can never bake a single cookie, so why not share them with your friends, family, and co-workers? Bake the classic chocolate chip or make a variety to celebrate this delicious holiday. You will definitely brighten everyone’s day.
Leave Martha Stewart behind, it’s time to get creative
A great cookie starts with a solid base: the batter. Once you have the dough, the possibilities are endless. Add your favorite nut, dried fruit, candy, or any special toppings to create your own signature cookie.
Host a cookie baking contest
This year, National Homemade Cookie Day is on a Sunday. Host a cookie baking contest at your neighborhood community center, church, or at home with friends and family. Encourage participants to create a family recipe or share one that has been passed down to them.
