National Cookie Day!
- Did you know that the English word
"cookie" is derived from the Dutch word "koekje," which means little
cake? Dutch bakers used to test oven temperatures on small amounts of
batter so that they would not waste the entire cake mix if the
temperature wasn't right. It was not long before they discovered that
these tiny pieces of cooked batter were actually quite tasty!
Cookies come in all different flavors, shapes, and sizes. To celebrate National Cookie Day, bake a few batches of your favorite variety and invite your friends over for a cookie swap!
