Bake Cookies Day

18 December

For once, a special food day that actually ties in with something you might be doing anyway!

Bake Cookies Day is a good time to get the last of your Christmas baking done, if you're so inclined. For many people, though, with the rush of everything else to do leading up to Christmas, it will be Buy Cookies Day.

Most Christmas cookie recipes are designed to make cookies that last and stay fresh for many days. The cookies make great presents for neighbours, paper boys, and delivery men, and to have on hand in tins as emergency presents.

Though no doubt this year, some will still be trying to foist on others cookies from last year still in the freezer...
