Pinterest Inspiration for National Peanut Butter Cookie Day

Some of the foods we eat are so ubiquitous that we don’t take the time to fully appreciate how wonderful they are. Enter National Peanut Butter Cookie Day—a full day of appreciation for one of America’s most beloved cookies.

The wonderfully simple combination of vanilla, sugar, egg and peanut butter has been around for generations. While George Washington Carver didn’t invent peanut butter, he did include peanut cookie recipes in his more than 300 uses for peanuts. The instantly recognizable crisscross pattern for peanut butter cookies was popularized by Pillsbury in the 1930s.

Whether you’re looking to honor National Peanut Butter Cookie Day with a classic and comforting traditional peanut butter cookie, a gluten free peanut butter cookie or you want to mix it up with chocolate chips, oats or even banana, check out our new Peanut Butter Cookies Pinterest board.
