Good news, friends. Not only is it Friday, it’s also National Cookie Day! Could this day get any better?
Well, it’s about to as I have 26 cookie recipes to share with you today! But first….
Earlier this week I attended an event with Christie Cookies at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens where we sipped hot cocoa, snacked on cookies, and decorated sugar cookies in the company of friends. After all the cookies were decorated, we headed into the gardens for the Holiday Lights display. So magical! The trees dazzle and glow with new life as candy canes or decorated with hundreds of illuminated flowers to create an elegant display from every angle. This is the first year Cheekwood has done a holiday light display, but I’m hoping it’s the beginning of a new annual tradition. If you’re in the Nashville area, it’s a must-see! More details at the end of this post.
The sweet folks at Christie Cookies gave us a tub of Sugar Cookie dough to take home so I made a couple dozen to share with friends. Gifting cookies is always a good idea!
And now a gift for you! Some of my fellow RD food blogging friends were kind enough to share their favorite healthier cookie recipes to create the ultimate National Cookie Day recipe round-up. Below are 26 recipes to try out this holiday to share with family, friends, and don’t forget Santa 🙂
