National Cookie Day, In the News, and Enjoy

National Cookie Day - Today is National Cookie Day!

The English word "cookie" is derived from the Dutch word "koekje," which means little cake.

Dutch bakers used to test oven temperatures on small amounts of batter so that they would not waste the entire cake mix if the temperature was not right. It was not long before they discovered that these tiny pieces of cooked batter were actually quite tasty!

Cookies come in all different flavors, shapes, and sizes. To celebrate National Cookie Day, bake a few batches of your favorite variety and invite your friends over for a cookie swap!
