NATIONAL PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE DAY
Peanut butter cookie lovers across the United States annually observe National Peanut Butter Cookie Day on June 12.
Alabama’s American agricultural extension educator, George Washington Carver, was the most well-known promoter of the peanut. Carver compiled 105 peanut recipes from various cookbooks, agricultural bulletins, and other 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 1920s that peanut butter was found listed as an ingredient in cookies.
Homemade peanut butter cookies would just not be right without the traditional forked crisscrosses on them!
