Treat yourself.

Juli Schafer What's your favorite cookie?

The holidays are usually filled with seasonal sweet treats: candy canes, hot chocolate, Aunt Sally's homemade fruitcake.

Just make sure you save room for cookies.

National Cookie Day is upon us on Sat. Dec. 4., and according to Grubhub order data from Dec. 4, 2020, to Dec. 4, 2021, chocolate chip cookies were the most popular cookie order in 50 percent of states, followed by sugar cookies.
