National Homemade Cookies DayNational Homemade Cookies Day

Get ready for your house to smell amazing as you celebrate National Homemade Cookies Day on October 1st. 

While the exact origin of cookies is unknown, they are believed to have developed out of the practice of creating small, tasting cakes used by chefs to check the formulation before committing to baking and frosting a larger cake for an event such as a wedding. This practice is thought to have originated in Persia in the 7th century.

The concept of the cookie spread as it gained popularity for its convenience and sweetness. By the 14th century, the tiny treats had become commonplace in most of Europe, and recipes for their creation appeared in most cookbooks of the era.

While favorites like Shortbread date back all the way to the 12th century in Scotland, the famously American and wildly popular chocolate chip cookie wasn’t invented until the 1930s when Ruth Wakefield created them to pair with ice cream at the Toll House restaurant in Massachusetts where she worked.

So whether your best effort at homemade cookies is Pillsbury cut and bake, a Betty Crocker box mix, or making grandma’s classic recipe from scratch, be sure to make time to put a batch in the oven this October 1st for National Homemade Cookies Day.
