Get Baking With These National Sugar Cookie Day Faves!

There’s not much history available that surrounds the origin of sugar cookies, but they are thought to have been created in the 1700s in Nazareth, Pennsylvania when German settlers created the “Nazareth Cookie”. [1] It was in the early 20th century that leaving sugar cookies and milk out for Santa became a well-known tradition. Today, this popular sugar cookie is found all over the world, with various spins on its original form. Bakers have created endless ways to bake the famous cookie, as well as toppings to round out this delicious treat and methods of decorating with different kinds of frosting.

World Food Day

Celebrate World Food Day Everyday

While World Food Day 2015 was on October 16, it began back in 1945 when the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United States (FAO) was created – an important step in the fight against hunger and malnutrition. Now, every year on this day, the U.S. works toward the FAO’s clear cut objectives, including heightening public awareness of worldwide hunger, drawing attention to achievements in food and agricultural development and encouraging participation in decisions and activities that influence the fight against hunger[1].
