Cookies are so popular in cultures across the world, it’s hard to think of a time before they existed. And, although there was a time before cookies, they actually date back pretty far… to the beginning of baked foods in general, in fact!
By the 14th century, they were well known in society served as royal cuisine and by every day street vendors.
Despite their rising popularity, cookies did not come to America until the late 1620’s They were brought to Americans by the Dutch in New Amsterdam who referred to them as ‘koekje”. This was later Anglicized to the word cookie.
Today, there are many varieties of cookies. Not only do they come in a wide selection of flavors, they come in different configurations as well. Those with a sweet tooth can enjoy bar cookies, drop cookies, filled cookies, sandwich cookies, no bake cookies…and the list goes on.
One of the most well known types of cookies is the chocolate chip. Invented in 1937, these were first made by Ruth Graves Wakefield who ran the Toll House Restaurant.
When Ruth didn’t have a needed ingredient for her ‘Butter Drop Do’ cookies, she used a bar of semisweet chocolate that she had on hand. She chopped the pieces of chocolate into the cookie dough and, voila, chocolate chip cookie weas born!
