It’s National Cookie Day, so what better way to celebrate than to bow down to the best cookie of them all — Cookie Lyon! Here are 16 of her best quotes to date!

Happy National Cookie Day! While some of you are taking a bite out of your favorite cookie, we’re celebrating the baddest cookie around. And her name is Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson)! Our favorite Empire momma is one of the best television characters ever created, so we’ve rounded up her 16 best lines — so far.

Cookie utters memorable lines practically every single episode, so it was hard to narrow down her best quotes. From yelling at Porsha to getting under Anika’s skin, Cookie is the queen of comebacks.
