Did you know that the word cookie is derived from the Dutch word "koekje", or little cake? They came about by accident: cooks used a little batter to test their ovens' temperature before baking an entire cake. Early on in America, "cooky" and "cookie" were both accepted spellings.

The British call them biscuits, from the Latin word for something that is twice cooked. Italian biscotti are also named for this method.

Visit http://globalcookies.blogspot.com/ for "A Cookie for Every Country". You'll learn the history of cookies from all over the world, and be able to try some of the recipes yourself.
