NATIONAL PECAN COOKIE DAY
Each year on September 21, people across the United States celebrate National Pecan Cookie Day.
This delicious cookie can be eaten and enjoyed morning, noon and night by hungry snackers everywhere. Another pecan related celebration is National Pecan Day on April 14. Pecan is an Algonquian word, meaning “a nut requiring a stone to crack.” A member of the hickory family, the pecan is native to central and southern United States.
Enjoying freshly baked, pecan cookies straight from the oven with a glass of milk is one of the best ways to end the day. Joining a friend while savoring the buttery goodness is even better. The variety of recipes for soft or firm cookies astounds most bakers. The toasted nuts and sugary sweetness melts in your mouth, keeping you coming back for more. They delight, and when stored properly, they stay fresh, too. But pecan cookies won’t last long when they’re baked right.
Gather up the ingredients for your favorite recipe. Whether soft and chewy or the dunking kind, bake up a batch for National Pecan Cookie Day.
