There’s no need for a new recipe, just pick out different cookie cutters, frosting colors and toppings for the different holidays. Our recommendation? Spend a night cutting, frosting, and sprinkling cookies with the kids and while you’re baking, share these fun facts with them!

 

-On September 5, 2001, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania adopted the sugar cookie as its official cookie.

-The sugar cookie as we know it today was created by Protestant settlers in the Nazareth colony of Pennsylvania in the 1700s. They baked their cookies in the shape of a keystone, the state’s symbol.
