Every year July 9th is NATIONAL SUGAR COOKIE DAY. We honor the sweetest and cutest cookie around. If you are like me, when I think of a sugar cookie I think of Decorated Sugar Cookies during the Holidays, and little kids having fun decorating them for Santa.
A sugar cookie is a cookie with main ingredients such as sugar, flour, butter, eggs, vanilla, and either baking powder or baking soda (depending on the type of sugar used). Sugar cookies may be formed by hand or rolled and cut into shapes. They are commonly decorated with additional sugar, icing, sprinkles, or a combination of these. Decorative shapes and figures can be cut into the rolled-out dough using a cookie cutter. –Wikipedia
The sugar cookie is believed to have originated in the mid-1700s in Nazareth Pennsylvania. German Protestant settlers created a round, crumbly and buttery cookie that came to be known as the Nazareth Cookie.National Day Calendar
