Get ready for your house to smell amazing as you whip up a batch of these sweet, nutty treats for National Pecan Cookie Day on September 21st. As a member of the hickory family, the pecan is a particularly tough nut to crack, which is reflected in the meaning of the word’s origin, an Algonquian word meaning a nut that needs a stone to crack.

While Europeans did not encounter the pecan until the 1500s, the Indigenous peoples of what is now Mexico and the southern United States had been cultivating the continent’s only native nut for generations, using its meat to create a fermented beverage called Powcohicora or hickory soup. 

During the 18th century, pecans became synonymous with the American South, especially the pecan pie. But pecan cookies also gained popularity for their delightful taste as well as the many benefits of pecans themselves such as high levels of vitamin B, fiber, iron, and protein. 

So break out the mixer and get ready to celebrate one of the tastiest ways to enjoy this important native nut with a fresh batch of warm cookies on September 21st for National Pecan Cookie Day.
