NATIONAL PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE DAY – June 12

National Peanut Butter Cookie Day - June 12

NATIONAL PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE DAY

Peanut butter cookie lovers across the United States annually celebrate National Peanut Butter Cookie Day on June 12.

Alabama’s American agricultural extension educator, George Washington Carver, was the most well know promoter of the peanut.  Carver compiled 105 peanut recipes from various cookbooks, agricultural bulletins and other different sources.  In 1916, he put together a Research Bulletin called “How to Grow the Peanut and 105 Ways of Preparing it for Human Consumption“.  Included in this Research Bulletin were three recipes for peanut cookies calling for crushed or chopped peanuts as one of its ingredients.

 It was in the early 1920′s that peanut butter was found listed as an ingredient in cookies. 

Homemade peanut butter cookies would just not be right without the traditional forked crisscross’s on them!
