Sugar Cookie Day is about unleashing your inner child and celebrating the simple sugary-goodness of this traditional treat. In the 1700s a group of German settlers arrived in Pennsylvania, and by combining sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla and baking soda they created a simple yet delicious food, now known as the Sugar Cookie. Of course, the original recipe never fails to please, but these days it’s easy to give it a modern twist – adding sprinkles, chocolate chips and frosting is the easiest way to jazz it up.
Sugar cookies are a great way to keep the kids entertained too; just give them the dough, cookie cutters, an assortment of toppings, and let their imaginations run wild! For the ultimate Sugar Cookie Day experience, you can organize a Cookie Exchange party with your friends and neighbours – just don’t forget to bring your sweet tooth!
