National Cookie Day Is for Baking

By David Jenison on December 4, 2018

In 1976, the children's television series Sesame Street first mentioned National Cookie Day, which The Cookie Monster mentioned again in 1980, but neither gave the culinary holiday a date. That didn't happen until 1987 when the Blue Chip Cookie Company in San Francisco declared December 4 as the official National Cookie Day. 

The sweet treat likely originated in Persia during the 7th century and spread to Europe when Muslims conquered the Iberian Peninsula a century later, but it was the Dutch who came up with the word "koekie," or "little cake," which became "cookie" when the treats arrived in America in the 1600s. A few centuries later, brilliant bakers started to infuse them with cannabis. 

To celebrate National Cookie Day, the following are four infused-cookie recipes from PRØHBTD's Smoking Pot series.
