Celebrate National Shortbread Day on January 6!

Now that the chaos of the holiday season is over it might be time to take a break. What better way than by celebrating National Shortbread Day with Dollar General on January 6. From store-bought cookies to shortbread cookie recipes, National Shortbread Day is a reason to relax and satisfy any sweet tooth.


Originating from Scotland, the shortbread cookie has been enjoyed for hundreds of years. Take the day to celebrate by cooking shortbread cookie recipes like the one found below from Dollar General Easy Meals, or delight in a Dollar General Literacy Foundation shortbread cookie with a morning cup of coffee. When purchased, 100 percent of the proceeds go to the Foundation, which awards grants each year to nonprofit organizations, schools and libraries within a 20-mile radius of a Dollar General store or distribution center to support adult, family, summer and youth literacy programs.
