Did you know that October 1st is National Homemade Cookies Day!? While the origins of this holiday are somewhat uncertain, I’ll take it as an excuse to indulge in one of my favorite treats.

Homemade cookies make for one of the best lunchbox surprises ever! I used to love getting cookies from my dad in my lunchbox wishing me luck on my tests, decorated with my name, or just a sweet “I love you.” Treat your kids, friends, co-workers to a sweet homemade cookie and celebrate with us today!

Here are some of my favorite recipes that call of Tillamook Butter or Sour Cream!
Sour Cream Sugar Cookies
Red Velvet Woopie Pies
Deep Dish Cheddar Apple Snickerdoodles

Hi Morgan,

I just emailed it to you! I will also post it here for anyone else who is looking for this recipe:

almonds or pecans


Preheat over to 350 degrees

Cream butter and sugar; add beaten egg, vanilla, and almond extract. Beat well.

Sift flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar together. Add to wet mixture and mix thoroughly. Chill.

Is the oven heated to just 250 degrees? There is too much sugar. Can I still reduce it?

Hi Edith,

Thanks for stopping by our blog! The oven should be heated to 350 degrees. We have not tried reducing the sugar, but altering the amount of sugar used in this recipe will probably affect the texture of the cookies depending on how much sugar you remove. It may be better to use a sugar substitute to ensure you get the same flavor and texture.

I hope that helps!

Hi Judy,

It's best to use finely chopped pecans or almonds for our butter cookie recipe.

I hope that's helpful!
