National Homemade Cookies Day is a great holiday to grab the right ingredients and make a delicious treat. Cookies are reminiscent of childhood, when mom invited to the table and put a plate of treats. Even if you do not have such memories, why not create them on this date?
Historians still argue about the origin of cookies. It is likely that it appeared in Persia (the territory of modern Iran), in the 7th century BC. There is evidence that cakes were originally baked for baking, and in order to check the temperature of the heat, a small dough was placed in the oven. The cookies gained popularity and spread around the world – they were not only tasty, but also convenient for travel due to their small size.
In the 14th century, sweetness was already all over Europe and England. Around this time period, shortbread cookies appeared, which are popular to this day. This simple recipe with simple ingredients was loved by many housewives, because this aroma drove guests crazy. National Day was created so that people do not forget that it is easy to cook a real masterpiece in the home kitchen!
