  'Tis the season for baking cookies, so how appropriate that Bake Cookies Day is held every December 18th right in the middle of the holiday season. 

The word 'cooky' or 'cookie' comes from the Dutch word “koekje”, meaning “little cake”. Cookies arrived in America along about the 17th century, although they may date back as far as 7th century Persia! Today they are a global phenomena, coming in more varieties, flavors and styles than you can possibly imagine.

The writers on Review This Reviews often write on the subject of food and have reviewed recipes for many varieties of cookies. It seems appropriate for Bake Cookies Day to share a few here.

  1. Ms. Elf, thank you for including my cookie links. I LOVE cookies. I want to get brave enough to try making those Rosettes.

    1. You are welcome, Dawn Rae. With the numerous cookie recipe reviews our team has done, I just had to include them in my Bake Cookies Day review. :) Thanks for visiting.

  2. I think everyone loves cookies, especially homemade cookies! Thank you for the reminder of the awesome cookie recipes that have been shared on Review This Reviews. I had no idea Dec 18 was set aside as Bake Cookies Day. Very cool indeed!

    1. Bake Cookies Day is a good time to post recipes from our RTR team. Always fun to see different cookie recipes.

  3. Oh just in time for our annual bake sale. I always need some new cookie recipes and you have just filled my need so well. Thanks you Miss Elf.....

    1. You are welcome, Olivia. Lots of fun recipes here.

  4. These all look amazing. Having been on Keto since May 2019 and haven't had any treats at all (except Keto treats, and few of those). This holiday season is calling upon my willpower a little more, and this article didn't help, lol - actually, I enjoy smelling and looking at the food now - that's how bad it is!

    1. Sorry to temp you, Barbara. Hope someday you can again have a favorite cookie. :)

  5. Learn something new every day! Was not aware of the origin of cookie :) - shame on me as I love baking cookies!

    1. So now you know, Tracey and can celebrate Cookie Day by baking some favorite cookies. :)
