National Sugar Cookie Day

There are dozens of different kinds of cookies to choose from, but the only kind you should eat on July 9 is sugar cookies. That's because it is National Sugar Cookie Day.

Sugar cookies are one of the quickest and easiest kind of cookies to make. You can make a whole batch in no time at all at little cost. They are not expensive, but that doesn't mean they are not good to eat. They are a special treat for your family. If you make enough you can take some to work to share with your co-workers.

Only Six Ingredients

Most sugar cookie recipes call for only six ingredients. They include the following items:

  • flour
  • sugar
  • butter
  • eggs
  • vanilla
  • baking powder

None of the ingredients are expensive. Besides, cooks don't have to make a special trip to the grocery store to purchase them. They probably already have the ingredients on hand.

Easy to Make

Sugar cookies can be purchased from any bakery or supermarket, but families like to make them at home because they are easy to make and the cost is low. Also, the people enjoy the experience, especially if their children help.

There are two easy ways to make sugar cookies. One way is to shape the cookies by rolling them or forming them into a ball and flatten them with your hand to make round cookies. The other way is to cut them into shapes with a cookie cutter.

After the cookies are done, they can be eaten plain or decorated with icing and sprinkles. Sometimes cooks use both decorations.

In the United States, sugar cookies are popular during special times such as Christmas, Easter, Halloween, and other holidays. The cookies are made in the shape of holiday images and decorated to represent the holiday.

During the Christmas season, the cookies are made in the shapes of stars, Christmas trees, bells, candy canes, Santa Claus and other images. Then they are decorated in festive colors. There is just as must fun decorating the treats as it is to eat them.

Don't make the mistake of thinking you have to wait until a holiday to enjoy the sweet treat. Whenever you and your family want sugar cookie, simply bake some for everyone.

What People Think About Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies seem to be a favorite among children and adults because of their convenience. Children learn early to make them along with the mothers in the kitchen during special times especially at Christmas.

How to Eat Sugar Cookies

Some people don't wait for sugar cookies to be decorated. They just pop them into their mouth as soon as they come out of the oven while they are still hot. Others like theirs cooled and decorated. Then another group likes to eat theirs with ice cream, peaches or some other fruit.

Enjoy your sugar cookies on National Sugar Cookie Day whether you eat them hot or cold, plain or decorated.

      Love sugar cookies, well really anything sweet! I have a scrumptious brown sugar cookie that I used for cutout Christmas cookies. Thanks, Margaret! I wish there was one in my hand to eat!

      WOW, Mary! What a coincidence that you were just thinking about sugar cookies. Yes, today is a good day to bake some since it is National Sugar Cookie Day.

      Heads Up: July 10 is National Piña Colada Day, and July 11 is Blueberry Muffin Day.

      I admit to thinking about sugar cookies the past days and I certainly will make some today in celebration of my favourite cookie.
