Bake Cookies Day
Bake Cookies Day is in the middle of the holiday season and it’s a great excuse for baking delicious cookies to get you through winter. To make your kitchen smell like winter celebrations, you might try cinnamon-flavored cookies such as the snickerdoodle. There’s also the traditional sugar cookie with brightly colored royal frosting, silver candy balls, and sprinkles. These can be cut into many seasonal shapes. Bake Cookies Day allows you to indulge in baking and eating cookies of all sizes, especially ones that are seasonal.
Although cookies arrived in America in 17th century, the Dutch introduced the word to America in their original Dutch form of “koekje”, which means “little cake”, but it was not until much later that the Dutch adopted the word. Although cookies date back to 7th-century Persia, this was quickly shortened to “cooky” and “cookie”. They’ve been a worldwide phenomenon since then, with many different flavors and styles.
You can find everything from fruit-filled cookies to simple, but delicious sugar cookies. These “little cakes” are the best thing since bread. Every year, people gather to celebrate Bake Cookies Day and bake dozens of cookies to support charity drives and orphanages.
Baking is the best way to celebrate the holidays.
If you want to do more, you could organize a charity baking contest where people can come in to taste all the cookies and vote for their favorites.
Combine the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla in a large bowl. Stir in the egg once it is well blended. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 2 hour. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thick. Use cookie cutters to create the desired shapes. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned.
There are many different types of cookies. A cookie is a gingerbread woman or man. A macaroon is the light, coconut-y, layering, delicious biscuit.
The sky is the limit when it comes to baking cookies. Creative bakers who are interested in breaking the mold have created some of the most well-known cookies. Ruth Graves Wakefield, Sue Brides, and their Massachusetts innkeeper, in 1938 invented the chocolate chip cookie. They wanted to experiment with something new and home-baked at their inn. We are all so glad they did.
You can have fun with the cookie cutter and your ingredients. This will help you generate interest and encourage people to share your cookies. It’s not difficult, but it is possible. Classic hits like the chocolate chip cookie aren’t baked every day. Inventing cookies can be a difficult task, especially for Ruth and Sue who didn’t have access to so many tried-and-true recipes. They relied on trial and error.
You don’t need to waste a lot of ingredients when you experiment with your own recipe. Follow a simple cookie recipe in a cookbook. You can tweak the recipe as much as you like, or as far as your imagination takes you. Your experiment will be a success as long as the basic ingredients are correct.
Cookies were made to be shared. Nobody wants to eat whole batches of cookies by themselves like a hungry blue furry monster. It’s wonderful when someone you don’t know takes a bite and enjoys the cookie. It’s even better if the cookie was made from our own ideas.
Bake Cookies Day is a great excuse to host a party. Invite your family and friends to join you in baking a few batches of either a traditional or an original recipe. Warm up with pumpkin spice lattes and hot chocolate to keep you warm.
These winter favourites are perfect companions for a batch fresh out of the oven cookies.
Give the gift of love. Although it may seem strange, your neighbors will be able to remember the kind gesture of delivering a box full of homemade cookies on Bake Cookies Day. You don’t have to share cookies right away, but if you are unable to do so today, when will you?
Bake Cookies Day does not have to be a single day. It can be used as a springboard for your baking creativity at other times throughout the year; different seasons call for different cookies.
