Yum Yum!

Did you know that October is National Cookie Month?  Now would be a great time to fire up the oven, dig out your favorite recipe and bake up some cookies for yourself or a friend!  There are so many yummy cookies.  What is your favorite?  Chocolate Chip? Snicker doodles? Whoopi Pies? Rice Krispy Squares? There are too many to list.  They are the perfect snack.  (as long as you don't eat the whole batch at once!!)Here are a few cookie facts.  Did you know that cookie cutters date back to the 1700's and were brought to America by the Germans and Dutch?  The Chocolate Chip cookie is the official state cookie of both Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. I wonder if they hand out free cookies at the border?  America spends over $550 million a year on Oreos!  So have a cookie! Or two or three this month to celebrate! I know I will. And by the way, October is also National Pizza month!  But that is a whole other blog.cheeky
