Today (October 1) is National Homemade Cookie Day and while a lot of people prefer to buy cookies already baked from the store or bakery, none of those can beat a fresh out of the oven cookie.

A recent survey of over 1,000 adults by Downtown Cookie Co. and Impulse Research found chocolate chip cookies are America's favorite homemade cookies.

The survey also found chocolate chip cookies were a three to one favorite over other cookies regardless of age, gender, political affiliation and where the survey participants live.
