A cookie is a baked or cooked snack or dessert that is typically small, flat, and sweet. It usually contains flour, sugar, egg, and some type of oil, fat, or butter. It may include other ingredients such as raisins, oats, chocolate chips, nuts, etc.
Cookies have warmed our hearts since the 7th century AD Persia, shortly after sugar became common in the region. The sugary confections spread to Europe through the Muslim conquest of Spain, and by the 14th century, were common in all levels of society throughout Europe, from royal cuisine to street vendors.
The Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie is the most famous drop cookie, invented in Whitman, Massachusetts in the 1930s. Drop cookies are one of the simplest types of cookies to make.
As the name implies, you make them by dropping spoonfuls of cookie batter onto a baking sheet. Drop cookies are some of the most popular cookie recipes, like sugar and oatmeal raisin.
In the UK, cookies are called biscuits, and hundreds of varieties of patisseries aren’t called cookies. Although people call the larger, softer cakes cookies, crackers are called water or savory biscuits, but in the cookie of life, friends are the chocolate chips.
