Though summer isn’t really thought of as the month of warm cookies by a fire, National Sugar Cookie Day falls on July 9 this year.

These simple snacks were born thanks to inventive 1700’s German immigrants in Pennsylvania, made with sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla and sodium bicarbonate.

21st century sugar cookies; however, have a little more spunk!

Add some frosting, sprinkles, or candies to spice up your creativity and taste buds.  Check out some crazy recipes here.
