National Cookie Day was this Friday, and like any major occasion, Instagram users took to their favorite social media platform to show off their favorite mouth-watering snaps.

The holiday hopes to celebrate the history of the much-beloved dessert. Cookies were first introduced in America back in the 17th century and the most popular flavors then were gingerbread cookies and assorted macaroons.
