Sunday is National Cookie Day, which means that it’s the perfect excuse to ruin your appetite before dinner (or lunch…or breakfast?) with a pile of delicious cookies. It’s the weekend, so nobody would dare judge you for indulging a sweet tooth. Luckily, all of the cookie fiends out there will be enabled by shops and bakeries all over the country celebrating National Cookie Day with free cookie giveaways. Below, all of the places you can find a free (or almost free) cookie to celebrate the occasion.
