9 July – Sugar Cookie Day
It’s Sugar Cookie Day! Today, we celebrate a cookie that is seemingly simple, but totally delicious. Traditional sugar cookie recipes call for just six ingredients: sugar, flour, butter, eggs, vanilla, and baking powder.
Although sugar cookies are sometimes thought of as plain, there is more to them than meets the eye. Use cookie cutters to create shaped sugar cookies and top them with frosting or sprinkles. You can also make cookie sandwiches with two sugar cookies and fillings like marshmallow, melted chocolate, or jam.
To celebrate Sugar Cookie Day, pick up a batch of homemade sugar cookies from your favourite bakery. Keep them for yourself, or share them with friends and coworkers!
