ALABAMA (WDHN) — “Sweet Home Alabama just got a little sweeter!”

Alabama Governor Kay Ivey said this after trying the Yellowhammer Cookie, Alabama’s new official sweet treat.

On Friday, Montgomery Fourth Grader and recipe creator Mary Claire Cook brought Gov. “Mee-Maw” Ivey a batch of cookies for her to try while reviewing the legislation.

After tasting Cook’s delicious delicacy, Gov. Ivey gave it her stamp of approval and, by putting her signature on the bill, officially named the Yellowhammer the official state cookie.

The bill to designate the Yellowhammer Cookie as a state symbol was sponsored by Representative Reed Ingram and passed in the House with a 103-0 vote.
