July 9th Is National Sugar Cookie Day

Today is National Sugar Cookie Day. There’s no Congressional record or Presidential proclamation of it, just a fun day designated to baking and eating sugar cookies. It was back in the 1700’s when German settlers brought with them to Pennsylvania a simple recipe for cookies that called for just six ingredients; sugar, flour, butter, eggs, vanilla, and baking powder.

You can top them with frosting or sprinkles. You can also make cookie sandwiches with fillings like marshmallow, melted chocolate, jam, even ice cream.

The history of cookies extends back to 7th Century Persia. It’s about the same time that sugar was introduced into the Middle East. Over the centuries it spread to Europe and other parts of the world.

Sugar cookies are pretty versatile, but most American polls don’t find them even in the Top Five.

  • Chocolate chip is far and away the favorite cookie, followed by
  • Oatmeal
  • Chocolate
  • Peanut Butter
  • Snickerdoodles
  • Sugar Cookies come in at Number Six.

Here’s a simple recipe for sugar cookies from Martha Stewart.
