National Cookie Day 2022: Cookie recipes for the fun crunch
National Cookie Day 2022: From ginger cookies to butter cookies, here are two simple and fun recipes that you can prepare at home and enjoy with near and dear ones.
National Cookie Day 2022: The special day is here. All across the world, National Cookie Day is celebrated on December 4 to celebrate the importance of our favourite snack. Cookies have our heart – be it salty or sweet, crunch or chewy. There are cookies for every mood, occasion and emotions. Through sadness, happiness and togetherness, or midnight studies or running late on a work deadline, cookies are the all-time snacks that we have beside us. Every year, on December 4, people observe the day by having their favourite cookies.
The special day was announced in 1987 by Matt Nader of the San Francisco-based Blue Chip Cookie Company, who started celebrations on this day as a way of having fun. As we near the date, we have curated a few cookies recipes that you can try at home:
