C is for cookie, that’s good enough for me. And it ought to be good enough for you, too. December 4 is National Cookie Day!
Our food holidays seem to be running out of steam and turning more “generic” as the year winds down. Instead of corn fritters, we’ve had fritters. Instead of German chocolate cake, it was cake. And now, instead of oatmeal raisin cookies, we’re just celebrating cookies. (We also have a generic National Pastry Day coming up. And just wait until National Chocolate Covered Anything Day. The sky’s the limit on that one). On the one hand this is good, as it allows us to get creative and do whatever we want. On the other hand, the lack of direction can leave us scratching our heads at times while trying to decide what, exactly, we should do. The holidays are a busy time of year. Who’s got time to think?!
December is also synonymous with baking in general, and cookies in particular. For some reason, Christmas cookies always seem extra tasty. Plus, you’ve gotta leave some out for Santa, right?
To celebrate, we went out to dinner at our favorite local salad bar/soup restaurant, Sweet Tomatoes. They serve cookies there, and we had a delicious pumpkin snickerdoodle. Very appropriate for the season!
