If you're looking for something to do today then I hope you're good at baking because it's National Homemade Cookies Day!  It's time to fill your house with the scent of awesomeness!  So let's get right into celebrating National Homemade Cookies Day!

WHY IS THIS A HOLIDAY?  

Do you really even need to ask? I mean, if you can't stand eating sweets then sure, I can understand why you'd ask that. But when it comes to cookies, homemade is always the best! They're still warm, you know what went into the mix and you get to eat a TON of them! And yeah, there are a lot of official holidays where people normally bake up cookies but we just went through the whole summer and didn't have such a holiday. So I can see why people wanted to set up a holiday for homemade cookies today; they're jonesing for them!  But what is a cookie really? Well, all it really is is a flat, baked good that usually contains flour, sugar, eggs and a bunch of other ingredients. So cookies are balls of sweet dough that, when baked, flatten out as the ingredients heat up. And it seems that these treats got their start in Persia in the 7th century, because sugar was very commonly used in that area. But it wasn't until 10 centuries later that these sugary discs made their way to America.

And even though cookies have evolved in so many different ways, their appears to be some really popular favorites. If you asked someone to name a type of homemade cookie that they love, then I'm willing to bet that they will say at least one of the following types of cookies. They will probably mention chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies, snickerdoodles, sugar cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies or even macaroons. We've all eaten at least one of these cookies!  Which will you choose to eat today?

HOW TO CELEBRATE 

So, how can you celebrate today?  Well, I'm sorry to all you lazy CeleGREATERS out there but it does say homemade in the title of the holiday, so you can't just go out and buy cookies! But you can get someone else to cook them for you. ;) If you honestly suck at baking or just are that lazy then tell someone who is good at baking about today's holiday. Help them find a recipe, maybe even go buy the ingredients for them but, if they know you well, they know they will be the ones doing the baking. So kick back and relax while you wait for them to be made, but get ready to be asked to do the dishes!  But I know some of you are great cooks so why don't you start searching for some awesome cookie recipes? Go to sites like Allrecipes, search for "cookies" and then organize them by their rating to find some of the best cookie recipes out there. I like to look for recipes that are really creative or are just plain weird, because I like letting my taste buds explore a little, but let YOUR taste buds guide you to the perfect recipe!  You can even have a couple people pick out their favorites and then you can eat bake your own type of cookies today. Then, once all of your cookies are done, you can sample each type and see whose eyes and mental taste memory selected the best type of cookie. You never know which cookies will look or sound as good as they really are until you bite into them.   Have a great day and don't forget to dunk a couple of these babies in milk!
