COOKIES! ~ a treat for any age but how did they get started, how did the 'cookie' get its name? Did you know the 'cookie' actually goes back to the 7th century? Now, that's a long way back, folks! I doubt very seriously it was the same as the cookie we know today. But, what did it look like? Was it really tasty? How was it sweetened? Is a 'cookie' called a 'cookie' all over the world? Do cookies look and taste the same the world over?
Whoa! Slow down! Stop for a moment! Let's take it easy on the questions and look for some of the answers. Because of the extent of the history behind the cookie, you will need to investigate history of cookies and how baked delights came to be to find the answers.
There are eight basic types of cookies: bar cookies, drop cookies, fried cookies, molded cookies, no-bake cookies, refrigerator (ice box) cookies, rolled cookies and sandwich cookies. Regardless of the type, any time is cookie time at any age! Ready to celebrate and have a cookie...maybe LOTS of cookies?
