If there was ever a year when everyone could use a cookie, it's got to be 2020. Fortunately, National Cookie Day is right around the corner on Friday, December 4th. And better yet, there are tons of ways you can celebrate. Whether you want to make your own cookies or simply enjoy one, there are a bunch of good deals and kits out there to mark the occasion with.

While you can always gather your ingredients and bake tons of delicious cookies like White Chocolate Peanut Butter 'Cookies and Cream' gluten-free cookies with Justin's, sometimes it's easier to have everything in one box ready to go. One such boxed kit comes from Pillsbury Baking.
