National Homemade Cookies Day – October 1, 2021

With the average person consuming almost 19,000 cookies in a lifetime, it is no surprise why we celebrate National Homemade Cookies Day! Every year on October 1, bakers, homemakers, and cookie enthusiasts alike, preheat their ovens to serve up these delicious treats. With a variety of options to choose from, there is no limit to the types of cookies you can create in the comfort of your own home.

National Homemade Cookies Day Activities

  1. Bake someone's day

    You can never just bake one cookie, so why not share them with your friends, family, and coworkers! Bake up the classic chocolate chip, or make a variety to celebrate this tasty holiday. You'll definitely brighten up everyone's day.

  2. Move over Martha Stewart, it's time to get creative

    A great cookie starts with a strong foundation: the dough. Once you have the dough, the possibilities are endless. Add your favorite nut, dried fruit, candy, or any special ingredient to create your own signature cookie.

  3. Host a cookie baking contest

    This year, National Homemade Cookie Day is on a Sunday. Host a cookie baking contest at your neighborhood community center, church, or at your home with friends and family. Encourage participants to create a family recipe, or share one that's been passed down to them.

Why We Love National Homemade Cookies Day

  1. They're quick and delightful

    Cookies are one of the easier treats to cook up, and they don't take much time to bake. Whether you like your cookies gooey, or crispy, their sweetness makes every bite enjoyable.

  2. They fill our tummies, warm our hearts

    Nothing makes us feel more at home than the smell and taste of freshly baked cookies. These nostalgic handheld circles, make the perfect snack at any time of day, and you can taste the love that goes into making them.

  3. You don't have to be an expert to bake

    Popular brands have made it easy for us to skip the hassle of preparing the cookie dough, and allow us to jump right in at the baking step. For those wanting to "break and bake", cooking up these treats has never been easier.
