COOKIE LAND — Sunday is National Cookie Day, and although it seems like there is a national day for everything, cookies are definitely worth celebrating, in my humble opinion.
Maybe you’re into gooey, chocolate chip cookies or soft, sweet sugar cookies. Perhaps you like the frosting laid on thick or sprinkles are your jam. Personally, I go crazy for these Andes Mint cookies. It’s easy to pick up a box of cookies from the grocery store or even to make your own, but if you’re looking to treat yourself to a cookie that’s unique to Utah, try one of these.
*Note: Each of these stores are closed on Sundays. Since National Cookie Day is on a Sunday, you may want to buy these cookies in advance.
