It’s Bake Cookies Day, as if we needed an excuse to this holiday season to bake some delicious cookies to help ourselves get through the cold, winter days!
Though cookies date back as far as 7th Century Persia, cookies arrived in America in the 17th century. The word, “cookies” stems from the Dutch word, “koekje”, meaning “little cake,” which over time has been shortened to “cooky” or “cookie.”
Celebrate Bake Cookies Day by baking your favorite recipe. It’s okay, we won’t tell and we certainly won’t count the calories either.
