If you’re a faithful reader of the Homeward blog, you’ve probably noticed that we love, love, love cookies (Exhibit A, Exhibit B), but we usually have to wait until a major holiday to celebrate them. However, with the increasing popularity of the micro-holiday (thanks, internet), we no longer have to!

Enter National Homemade Cookie Day. So pre-heat the oven, round up a few ingredients and join us as we indulge in one of our favorite treats—just because! We’ve provided a few recipes below, in case you’re in need of some inspiration.

SOMETHING CLASSIC: Chocolate Chip Cookies from Pinch of Yum

The comforting aroma, the warm chunks of chocolate, the soft dough fresh out of the oven—it’s hard to top this confectionary masterpiece. Add a tall glass of milk and eat as many as you like. We won’t tell anyone.

SOMETHING DIFFERENT: Melt-in-Your-Mouth Pumpkin Cookies from Dear Crissy

Another bandwagon we’ve jumped on: Everything Pumpkin. Yep, completely guilty. But hey, you should embrace your passions, right? So if you’re a PSL lover, take it to the extreme with these euphoric fall treats.
