National Homemade Cookies Day is an unofficial food holiday celebrated annually on cookiesOctober 1st. On this day, people celebrate by indulging in delicious homemade cookies of all kinds.

The varieties of cookies that you can make at home are vast and vary from simple to the more elaborate. It doesn’t matter if you prefer a traditional homemade chocolate chip cookie or a fancy Florentine cookie, National Homemade Cookie day is just a great excuse to enjoy some warm, fresh baked cookies on a chilly October day!
