National Cookie Day
December 4, 2020
National Cookie Day is observed annually on December 4.
We can thank the Dutch for more than windmills and tulips. The English word “cookie” is derived from the Dutch word “koekie” meaning little cake. There have been cookie-like hard wafers in existence for as long as baking has been documented. This is because they traveled well, however, they were usually not sweet enough to be considered cookies by modern day standards.
