NATIONAL SPICY HERMIT COOKIE DAY
National Spicy Hermit Cookie Day is observed annually on November 15.
Today honors an old-fashioned cookie spiced with cinnamon, cloves, allspice and sometimes nutmeg and filled with raisins, nuts and dates.
Hermit cookies originated in the New England area. In 1880 the young ladies of the Trinity Church, Plattsburgh, New York published the cookbook Champlain Valley Book of Recipes with a Hermits recipe. This was a local cookbook in its 3rd edition suggesting it was first printed a year or two earlier. Soft and chewy, these cookies are sure to put a smile on the face of all who taste them.
