Before delving into delicious chocolate dipped cookies,
let's first look at cookies in general:
Cookies appear to have their origins in 7th century AD Persia, shortly after the use of sugar became relatively common in the region.
The word "cookie" derives from the Dutch word koekje, which meant "little cake."
In some countries a cookie is called a "biscuit", which comes from the Latin phrase bis coctum, meaning
The first historic record of cookies describes them as "test cakes". Apparently, before attempting to bake an entire cake, a sample of cake batter would be cooked in order to test the temperature of an oven. Then, this sample was baked a second time, along with the larger cake, often causing it to come out crispy.
By the end of the 14th century in Europe, cookies/biscuits were valued as a separate delicacy, and could be bought. They were common in all levels of society from royal cuisine to street vendors.
They were enjoyed on both sides of the Atlantic by the end of the 17th century.
Cookies come in a wide variety of styles, contain a wide array of ingredients, and can be baked or unbaked. More or less, they're classified according to how they're formed before baking.
