So what exactly is it with Americans and their love of sugar cookies?
Sugar cookies date back to the the mid-1700s, among Protestant settlers in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. The traditional sugar cookie had just six ingredients: baking powder, butter, eggs, flour, sugar and vanilla.
Early versions of the sugar cookie were often a cross between the modern-day bagel and a cookie. They were drier, which made them last longer before the invention of the refrigerator.
Or perhaps we can blame the Girls Scouts for our obsession. The simple sugar cookie was the first true Girl Scout Cookie back in 1922.
Wherever the obsession with sugar cookies originated from, we're just glad Cold Stone Creamery is satisfying this nationwide craving!
