Celebrate the 21st of September with a pecan cookie dunked graciously into a tall glass of cold milk. You can enjoy this delight in the company of yourself or with a few other National Pecan Cookie Day celebrators!

Bake your own pecan cookie, or have a professional take to this delicious task. Either way you have it, you’ll go nuts over a good pecan cookie any day. If you decide to take to the oven, here’s a fabulous recipe from Woman’s Day for a double chocolate pecan cookie. The recipe makes 62 cookies, so you can have a pecan cookie day party!

Chicago-area grocery store bakeries or independent bakeries both sell pecan cookies. Below are a few Chicago bakeries:
