Here are some things you may not know about the cookie:
The word “cookie” came from the Dutch work “koekje,” which means little cake.
Bakers tested oven temperatures on small amounts of dough which in turn, bakers discovered cookies!
A fun way to celebrate National Cookie Day is to have a cookie swap. Invite a few of your friends over and each of you exchanges your favorite cookie or cookie recipe.
Enjoy my favorite cookie recipe!
