National Dice Day, but that isn't nearly as interesting, or tasty, as cookie day.
Since December in America is a packed with parties, parties and more parties. Why not add one more reason to celebrate? You could host a cookie swap in honor of cookie day and get a jump on your holiday baking. An interesting tidbit I picked up in writing this post was Readers Digest list of the No. 1 Holiday Cookie for each of 50 States. In California, where I live, the favorite is: Persimmon Cookie, which I've never even tasted. Based on their list I should live in Tennessee, because Peanut Blossoms are my absolute favorites!
If you're curious to see what Reader's Digest picked as the favorite holiday cookie for your state, check out The No. 1 Holiday Cookie in Each of the 50 States.
If the thought of National Cookie day has stirred up a burning desire to bake your own cookies, check out: Bake at 350, a new blog favorite packed with recipes and decorating ideas; many of them (almost) too pretty to eat. Tasty Kitchen, an offshoot of the popular blog The Pioneer Woman, also has some tasty treats with more than 3,000 cookie collections, like the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie that's perfect when I can't decide if I want a peanut butter, chocolate chip or oatmeal cookie. This one has them all in one.
I'm sure one of these sites will have something that will tempt your sweet tooth and help you celebrate National Cookie Day. Of course, there is no law stating that you have to bake your own cookies to celebrate National Cookie Day. If you're giving your oven the day off after all the Thanksgiving baking, you can always grab a bag of Oreos and celebrate with a cold glass of milk.
