TODAY IS SUGAR COOKIE DAY
Sugar cookies are far and away one of the simplest and most delicious cookies to ever be created. They are the hallmark of Christmas, with Santa ostensibly wolfing down tons of them every year in a deluge of milk. They are made to celebrate every occasion and are sold as part of charity drives everywhere. Sugar Cookie Day celebrates this delicious little treat, and the big role it plays in all our lives.
