Before you check out some of the cookies on Pinterest, let’s first talk about the history of cookies. A little cookie history can make you appreciate the sweet little cake. Yes! I called them cakes since they were once called little cakes instead of just a cookie.
The first cookies were created by mistake if the story that I have read is true. The cooks before used a small amount of the cake batter to check out the temperature of the oven before putting in the cake. These test cakes were then called little cake or “keokje” in Dutch. It is also the Dutch that popularized the cookies in America, while the British took interest in them in the 19th century. By the way, the British called them biscuits or sweets buns.
In 1930, according to the story, an innkeeper from Massachusetts ran out of nuts while preparing cookies. The innkeeper substituted a bar of chocolate and she breaks it into pieces. She added the chocolate into the flour, sugar and butter dough. Hence, the chocolate chip cookie was born. Ruth Wakefield was the innkeeper who invented the much-loved chocolate chips, which has become a part of American snacks. However, the earliest cookie was said to date back to the seventh-century AD Persia, one of the countries that cultivated sugar. When sugar became common in the region, it spread to Europe and by the 14th century, they became common throughout Europe that everyone from the royal family to common street vendors eats cookies. And with the popularity of traveling, it spread throughout the rest of the world. After all, cookies can be eaten by hand, making them a perfect travel companion. The cookies phenomenon came to America through the immigrants in New Amsterdam in the late 1620s.
Today, cookies are still a favorite snack by many people and they have leveled up in design and taste.
