National Cookie Day is December 4th, and Mad Minis wants to help you make it a delicious day! To help celebrate, Channel 2 asked me to be on Sunday Brunch, where I demonstrated a Chocolate Peppermint Mad Mini Ice Cream Sundae.
History of Cookie Day
For those of you who may not know, National Cookie Day started as an “unofficial” national holiday in 1987 by the Blue Chip Cookie Company. On National Cookie Day, I like to celebrate by having a cookie with breakfast, lunch, and dinner and also for a snack!
The word “cookie” comes 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. Cookies arrived in America in the 17th century. Macaroons and gingerbread cookies were among the popular early American cookies. Today, Chocolate Chip cookies are by far Americas favorite.
