Happy National Sugar Cookie Day!

June 9 is National Sugar Cookie Day!

Sure, it seems like every other day is a dessert-dedicated holiday in America, which probably isn't helping our obesity rates. But hey, a holiday's a holiday, right? Plus, a recent study at Stanford showed that lack of exercise, not diet, is the bigger cause of rising obesity levels.

Health aside, a national holiday — even a questionable one — is the perfect excuse to indulge in some delicious baked goodness.

Or, you could always go with double chocolate or chocolate chip, since, really, they have sugar in them anyway, right?

Whatever you decide, make this holiday one to remember!
