About National Homemade Cookies Day

When is National Homemade Cookies Day? This holiday is always observed on October 1

Let’s bake a lot of homemade cookies today, as it is Homemade Cookies Day, An October 1 holiday. 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.

Today's Quote

“I’m so glad I’m not a dentist. How many times does someone say, ‘Oh, Doc, it felt so good when you were drilling my teeth’? Never. But when you give someone a wonderful cookie, you put a little of yourself in, and you see someone’s face light up – that’s immediate approval.” – – Paula Deen
