NATIONAL SUGAR COOKIE DAY
Celebrated each year on July 9, National Sugar Cookie Day honors the ever popular and delicious sugar cookie.
A holiday favorite and very easy to make, sugar cookies are sure to disappear quickly once they come out of the oven. Made with sugar, flour, butter, eggs, vanilla and either baking powder or baking soda, most people have the ingredients on hand at all times and can have the kids help make a batch on any day. Cutting the cookies, with cookie cutters, into different shapes and decorating them with frosting and sprinkles are a popular and fun way to finish the cookies.
The sugar cookie is believed to have originated in the mid 1700′s in Nazareth Pennsylvania. It was there that the German Protestant settlers created the round, crumbly and buttery cookie that came to be known as the Nazareth Cookie.
