From homemade to store bought, National Cookie Day is the reason to eat more cookies.

While Cookie Monster says, C is for Cookie, National Cookie Day could be the start of the holiday baking season. On December 4, cookies could be the star of the plate morning, noon and night. Although many people subscribe to eating dessert first, this food holiday might be an excuse to only eat cookies.

For many people, a cookie is the perfect dessert. While the number of cookie recipes are almost limitless, everyone has a favorite cookie. From that classic Nestle Toll House chocolate chip recipe to the delicate French macaron, you could probably eat a different cookie every day of the month and never repeat.

On National Cookie Day, many brands are celebrating all things cookies. To kick off the celebration, Nestle Toll House wants to hear about those epic baking fails. While many people appreciate a good kitchen failure, sharing your story could score you some free cookies.

According to Nestle Toll House, anyone is encouraged to respond to its baking fail giveaway tweet. By responding and tagging #TollHouseRescue and #Sweepstakes you could win some free cookie dough. Just try not to have another baking fail with that free cookie dough.
