Groundhoggers—It's here!

One of the most frequent questions we get asked is, ‘What is the traditional Groundhog Day meal?’. We of course include the traditional groundhog cookie made from molasses as an important treat for Phil’s big day. The traditional groundhog cookie recipe started many years ago with Elaine Light, the past President of the Inner Circle -Sam Light’s wife.

She was also the author of many different cook books, which include: Gourmets & Groundhogs, The Second Helping, and Cooking with the Groundhog. These recipes included some of Punxsutawney residents’ favorite recipes, traditional German dishes, and much, much more.

The Inner Circle has collected her favorite recipes from the past cook books and combined them with some their favorite recipes of today!

 This recipe book is an eclectic compilation recipes mixed with the history of Groundhog Day and Punxsutawney Phil.
