National Cookie Day


Now, this is a day I LOVE!!!  December 4th. I will take cookies over any dessert.  Does not matter if the cookies are crunchy or soft, I love them all.  In 1853 The original Keeble elf Godfrey Keebler opened his neighborhood bakery in Philadelphia.  1912 came to Oreos, which was a knockoff of the first chocolate sandwich cookie called Hydrox.  In 1930 along came Ruth Wakefield from Whitman Massachusetts who ran a popular restaurant “Toll House” which brought Chocolate Crunch Cookies to her patrons, which is considered the first chocolate chip cookie.   1963 Chips Ahoy! Debuted their cookies in America.
