ALBANY, GA (WALB/CNN) -

South Georgians celebrated National Sugar Cookie Day Sunday.

If you bake, you know you can make them from ingredients a lot of people already have on hand.

That includes sugar, flour, eggs, butter, vanilla and baking powder or baking soda.

WALB News 10 caught up with a couple moms who say these will always be a classic for their kids.

"They're just good. Sugar and the sprinkles, they're just good," said Demetrius Bridges who treated her kids to cookies at the Albany Mall Sunday.

"We do different food color dyes, different sprinkles, whatever they want," said mom Kayla Johnson.

According to CNN, the sugar cookie was born in Pennsylvania back in the 1700s.

It was first known as the 'Nazareth cookie.'
