Gourmet magazine was born in January 1941.
And, they're now offering a culinary retrospective of sorts.
You can view the "Cookie of the Year" from 1941 - through 2008.
And, the recipes are available, too.
(Hey, you can surprise Grandma with a blast from the past!)
Head to Gourmet.com to see the tasty treats of kitchens gone by.
Here's a look at the cookies of the 40s.
