Happy National Homemade Cookies Day!

October 1st is National Homemade Cookies Day, so let’s celebrate! Here are some ideas to get you going…

October 1st is National Homemade Cookies Day, and I'm celebrating by sharing over 20 homemade cookie recipes, including a few no-bake and two-ingredient recipes!

Recipes for National Homemade Cookies Day

How about Potato Chip Cookies? They’re a sweet and salty treat! So are these super easy to make Pretzel Cookies (they’re also a great way to use up Halloween candy).

This recipe for Butter Cookies with Jelly is one of my favorites. The kids like picking their own flavors of jelly for their cookies.

These Carmelitas are more like a cookie bar, but they are an indulgent treat, and Jason’s favorite recipe handed down from his mom.

This recipe for two ingredient, no bake Oreo Truffles is loved by my entire family, and my niece makes them for every special occasion. And these Amaretto Truffles make the perfect gift during the holidays.

These Cream Cheese Mints are my favorite, and also a family tradition.

And just in time for fall, here’s a two ingredient recipe for Pumpkin Cookies.

Back in May, we celebrated National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, and I shared a ton of chocolate chip cookie recipes (even a few make your own Easy Bake Oven cookie recipes!)

Now that you’re ready to get baking, don’t miss my tips on how to soften butter quickly which is a neccesity for making the perfect cookie!

  1. How did I miss this day?! My favorite cookies to make are oatmeal with chocolate chip because they're so easy.
