While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Come out of your shell - November 15 is National Spicy Hermit Cookie Day!
You don't have to be a hermit to enjoy one of these peculiarly-named holiday cookies, but you just might want to stash a recipe for your next cookie swap.
So how did the hermit cookie get its name? A 19th century favorite, these cookies were so named because they keep well in a cool, dry place for quite some time... like a hermit, apparently.
Bring this Victorian cookie back for your holiday get-together and share the love by making an old-fashioned recipe.
But you don't have to hide these hermits away after the holidays - you should be free to snack all year long!
