July 9th is meant to add a little sweetness to your life. The day marks National Sugar Cookie Day, and honors the ever popular cookie and holiday favorite. Sugar cookies are made from staple ingredients which many people already have in their homes, consisting of sugar, flour, butter, eggs, vanilla, and either baking powder or baking soda.
The sugar cookie is known for both its simplicity and it’s decadence. The cookie was created by German settlers in Pennsylvania in the 1770s and is the official state cookie of Pennsylvania.
Sugar cookies can be made both plain and dressed up using cookie cutters, frosting, and sprinkles.
