Cookies, Cookies, Cookies!

December 4th was National Cookie Day. We were curious to see which cookie would come out on top so we polled our patrons and staff. Drum roll please…the American classic chocolate chip cookie was the winner in both polls!

Many voters showed love for peanut butter cookies, oatmeal cookies, snickerdoodles and shortbread. And there was no shortage in the write-in category! White chocolate macadamia, toffee praline, Mexican wedding cake cookies, ginger snaps, chewy pumpkin white chocolate and lemon squares made the list.

Whatever your favorite, whip up a batch for someone you love (that includes you!). These books can give you some new ideas and you’ll find many more titles at your local branch of Tacoma Public Library.

Long live the cookie!
