National Cookie Month

A vintage cookbooklet from my collection
Did you know October is National Cookie Month?  Neither did I, until I read this amazing fact in an email from King Arthur Flour.  Now, I think it is important that we celebrate!

Cookies and bars are some of my very favorite things to bake.  In fact, I have an entire Pinterest board which I have titled The Cookie Jar.  Check it out -- you will find loads of inspiration there.

And, as you might guess, I have loads of cookie recipes here at my kitchen table.  I went back to the archives and linked up to some of them for you.  These Best Blond Brownies really are the best.  I highly recommend them and they are so easy!

The Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies Ever take just a few simple ingredients and are a fun cookie to bake with kids.

Pumpkin Snickerdoodles are a perfect cookie for fall baking.  Yes,  they actually do contain pumpkin as an ingredient ... they are not just pumpkin spice.

These Crunchy Toffee Crackle Cookies are a recipe I developed myself to taste like cookies I remembered from the hometown bakery of my childhood.  They come pretty close!

And if you are interested in a whole bunch of cookie recipes, go here: Cookie Recipes Galore.  This is a post I did with links to collections of my cookie recipes.  It was a link-up to Gooseberry Patch's Recipe Round-Up, so there are also tons of  recipe links below my post.  Have fun with them!

 Happy National Cookie Month!  And happy baking!


  1. Oh this is horrible! It's cookie month and I have not baked one cookie! I should bake some today as it is bitter cold and I will be having guests later. It is always fun for me to make something without any chocolate chips.

  2. I haven't baked cookies either this month, come to think of it! Bitter cold here too -- 25º when I got up and isn't supposed to get out of the 40s all day. Guess I really should bake ... but I'm trying to help my hubby eat healthy. Maybe I could bake some Christmas cookies to freeze.


Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my kitchen table! I love company here in my kitchen, so be sure to leave a comment so I'll know you've visited! I'll answer your questions and comments here on the blog unless you request otherwise.
