National Homemade Cookies Day

Date When Celebrated : Always October 1 st

Let's bake a lot of homemade cookies today, as it is Homemade Cookies Day. Baking any kind of cookie will do. Put on your apron and get baking. The more cookies you make, the better. You get extra points, if you are a mom. That's because everybody knows that mom makes the best cookies!

What qualifies as "Homemade": Making cookies from scratch is certainly homemade. And, it's the best way to celebrate this holiday. If you use a box mix, it still qualifies as homemade. There is some disagreement, as to whether using  pre-packaged store bought cookie dough, where you slice the cookies and then bake them, is considered homemade. We will let you make that call.

It is okay to bake the cookies the night before this holiday....only if you bring them to work or a party on this holiday.

There are a lot of special holidays celebrating cookies, most notably:

History and Origin of National Homemade Cookies Day:

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. However, in our research, we discovered many interesting cookie recipes that we are anxious to try.

Almost all food related holidays and special days are referred to as "National". I guess we Americans like our food...and it shows.

We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a "National" day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.
