Happy Friday and “National Homemade Cookies Day” (if you’re reading this on October 1st).
Can you smell them now? Will it be peanut butter, chocolate chip, or snickerdoodle? Whatever the recipe you mix up, enjoying them fresh from the oven with a cold glass of milk and family will make National Homemade Cookies Day even better. Experiment by trying a new recipe or maybe an old one to share fond memories with the next generation. If you are looking for an excuse to bake some homemade cookies, look no further. Package them up and share them with neighbors, co-workers, and friends!

Shortbread is right up there too.
