December 4th: National Cookie Day


Happy National Cookie Day!

We whole heartedly embrace and celebrate this day! Grab a cookie or two and read a few fun cookie facts to celebrate!

The English word “cookie” is derived from the Dutch word “koekie” which means little cake. Cookies were born from the need to test an ovens temperature before baking a cake. These mini test cakes were not thrown away and gained popularity as a tasty treat.

The origin of the cookie began in Persia in the 7th century. Cookies made their debut in America in the 17th century. Gingerbread and Macaroons were definite favorites. 

In countries outside of America it is common to hear the word biscuit used for cookie.

Can you guess America’s favorite homemade cookie?

Cookies come in all different flavors, shapes, and sizes. The cookie is one of the most revered desserts in America. Chocolate chip wins the day and is our number one seller as well!

We have fond memories, filled with nostalgia, of eating cookies as a child. For most of us, that love for cookies never left us.

This question remains- will you choose a crispy or a chewy cookie? America voted chewy! According to National Today, 35% like crunchy cookies, but 65% love their cookies soft and chewy! 

It’s the little things that make life sweet-celebrate National Cookie Day on December 4th and brighten someone’s day with some Sweets by Sarah K cookies!
