National Homemade Cookie Day is observed each year on October 1, and really, we can’t think of a more wonderful day than this. Curling up with a plate of warm cookies, a mug of steaming hot coffee, and a favourite book is the recipe for a perfect afternoon. The whole image gives us some serious hygge vibes, especially if you’ve baked the cookies yourself. So today, no buying from a bakery. Instead, whip up a batch of lemon white chocolate chip, chewy peanut butter chocolate chunk, melt in your mouth Italian orange cookies, or any of the other delicious recipes in this roundup, and celebrate National Homemade Cookie Day!
