July 9, Sugar Cookie Day
ach July 9 is celebrated as Sugar Cookie Day. Like so many other celebrations, this one also has its origins in the United States. And, since then, it has been a great help to bakeries and coffee shops in which on this day they bring out a multitude of offers and promotions commemorating sugar cookies.
Although it was born in the United States, these famous cookies celebrate their day every year in more places around the world.
How to celebrate this day
As we said, these cookies made with flour, egg, butter and sugar are super versatile. We can add many more ingredients, so we can find them in a multitude of flavors, shapes and colors. Even with different doughs, depending on their texture and elaboration. But if there is one thing they have in common, it is that as soon as they come out of the oven, they disappear.
In addition, we can make them in many shapes, and make some fun cookies to celebrate Sugar Cookie Day.
They are perfect for a sweet breakfast, or simply as a dessert. But they are also ideal for tea time.
If you also want to celebrate this day, prepare some homemade sugar cookies, and share them with everyone using the hashtag #NationalSugarCookieDay.
Did you know that sugar cookies have centuries of history?
Mentions of sugar cookies appear already in the ancient Persian Empire, around 500 B.C., when they discovered sugar and learned how to extract it from sugar cane.
Later, in the 2nd century BC, the Chinese also began to process sugar from sugar cane, and began to use it in cookies and cakes.
So, although we usually think that these sweets are relatively modern, the truth is that they have been made for centuries.
