Let us be the first to say that, yes, we’re absolutely aware of the sheer absurdity that comes with finding ways to celebrate every
marketing ploy “national day” under the sun, but today happens to be National Cookie Day, and we don’t eff around when it comes to one of our favorite kinds of sweets.
Sure, there are the usual visions of gingerbread cookies dancing in our heads at this time of year, but just because it’s the holidays doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate other, equally delicious cookies.
We’ve rounded up 21 of our favorites (including vegan and gluten-free options!), from traditional chocolate chip cookies to the incredible invention of a filled cheesecake Christmas cookie. When packaged in cellophane or a pretty box, they make excellent holiday gifts, but we won’t judge if you decide to eat them all yourself.
