National Homemade Cookies Day is celebrated every year on October 1st. If you’re looking for a reason to cook up some homemade cookies, consider this: baking them yourself not only saves you money but also provides a unique sense of pride and accomplishment. Best of all, it’s easy to do!

If You Like to Start Your Day off with a Delicious Hot Breakfast 

Start your day right by having your morning cup of coffee. If you like to start your day off with a delicious hot breakfast, consider making a large batch of fresh homemade cookies before heading off to work. Using either a conventional cookie recipe or one of the hundreds of creative varieties available today, you can begin the day in the kitchen with the intention of baking cookies every time you return from work. The result is that you end up staying in the kitchen for significantly longer each day, thus increasing your productivity and relaxation!

Prepare a Huge Batch of Homemade Cookies

Alternatively, start the day off right by preparing a huge batch of homemade cookies. For the fastest, easiest option, choose cookie mix which contains no butter, sugar, salt or cream. These types of recipes are usually available in compact cardboard boxes or in a number of different flavors. For the greatest flavor combinations, experiment by combining various types of powdered flour, brown sugar, molasses or honey along with the powdered sugar and baking powder to create a variety of delicious cookies. You may also want to use a cookie cutter to cut shapes from the mixture so that you can decorate them and save time as well.

Remain Interesting for Hours on End

For something that will actually “bake” well and remain interesting for hours on end, try experimenting with shortbreads and dark chocolate. Both of these ingredients offer unique characteristics that can be used to make shortbread and chocolate brownie cookies soft and chewy or crunchy and rich. Both of these items can be combined together to make cinnamon-flavored shortbread or chocolate brownie cookies that are both dangerously sweet and delectable! By adding either cinnamon or nutmeg, brown sugar or molasses, chocolate chips or dried fruit, the cookies may become shiny and glossy, just like homemade cookies made from scratch. This is also an excellent way to enjoy indulgent treats while still conserving valuable energy levels thanks to the many calories provided by eating a treat!

Once You have Made Your Own Homemade Cookies

Once you have made your own homemade cookies and are satisfied with their taste, what are you waiting for? Run to the store and stock up on your favorite ingredients. When you go home, you can experiment with each of the individual ingredients to make cookies that taste just like the ones that you buy at the store. This is one of the great pleasures to be had from making homemade cookies – experimenting with different flavors and ingredients until you find just the right combination. In addition, when you buy cookies in bulk, you save money because you can purchase in bulk quantities.

Use Unsalted Butter and Brown Sugar

One of the best homemade cookie recipes out there uses unsalted butter and brown sugar. You may choose to use either unsalted butter or very mild fat. In addition to using unsalted butter or no fat, you may also choose to use a soy or sunflower oil in place of butter. The addition of any oils will not significantly change the texture and flavor of your homemade cookies. What’s more, these oils are low in calories and high in good fats like omega-3 that are vital to good health.

Benefits of Using Fats

One of the benefits of using fats instead of butter or sugar is that they keep the cookies moist and keep them from cracking when being cut into little pieces. When unsalted butter or any other fats are used, the cookies tend to get too dry and hard. But when fats are combined with sugar or milk, the cookies will become very soft. There are other ways that you can balance the ratio of fats and sugar in your homemade cookies made the old-fashioned way. For instance, mixing white sugar with a bit of peanut butter will create a light and delicate combination that’s healthy too.


Baking is an art and one that requires practice. Before baking your first batch of cookies, make sure that you try a couple of different recipe variations. Check for the results and then start on the next ones. As you get better at making cookies, you may want to consider trying other types of cookie recipes. It’s possible that your favorite cookie recipe may become your new favorite.
