Who Knew? October is National Cookie Month

Who Knew? October is National Cookie Month

I’ve been asleep at the wheel this week, and I apologize. I’ve been cooking up a storm (as my Facebook fans know, because they get a sneak peek) but haven’t had time to write up posts & recipes.

Buuuut, I just heard some exciting news: October is National Cookie Month! I feel like celebrating, don’t you? Here’s a rundown of cookie recipes from Words to Eat By, ranked in order of my own preference:

The Best Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies in the Entire World
Some-Moas (Yes, that’s right, these are homemade Girl Scout cookies, Samoas to be precise.)
Chewy Cocoa Fudge Cookies
Black and White Cookies
Chocolate Cappuccino Wafers
Whole Wheat Sugar Cookies
Chocolate Pizzelles
Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies
Oatmeal Cookies with Pecans, Raisins, and Chocolate Chips
Scottish Shortbread

These I’ve made and they’re FANTASTIC; forgive me but it was during my hiatus so I didn’t blog about them: Homemade Oreos from Smitten Kitchen. They’re pictured above: vanilla, chocolate, and mint!

And here’s my current To-Try list from other blogs, this time in no particular order:
Chocolate Toffee Cookies with Toasted Pecans from Baking and Books
Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies from Joy the Baker
Chocolate Chunkers from Dorie Greenspan
Carrot Oatmeal Cookies from 101 Cookbooks
Mocha Truffle Cookies from Sweetnicks
