Why We Love National Cookie Day
Everyone's got a favorite
Oatmeal? Chocolate chip? Sugar? They can't all be the best cookie, but any of them could certainly be someone's favorite. With the vast variety of cookie types across the globe, you're bound to get ten different answers if you ask ten different people.
Come on — does this one really need elaboration? We've all got fond memories, filled with nostalgia, of eating cookies as a youngster. For most of us, that love for cookies never left us.
They make it easy to pace yourself
If you bake a massive cake, it's easy to eat too much. Think about it: even after cutting out a massive slice, there's still a ton of cake left and it barely looks like you've made a dent. With cookies, it's easier to stop at one (though no one ever does.)
