What would life truly be like if we didn’t have cookies? Can you even image growing up rather than getting to get cookies and milk? What would we leave in place of biscuits for the jolly old fella? Milk and …? All of us have a lot of memories of cookies through our lives!
Cookies come in a lot of forms and can be classified as drop cookies, refrigerator cookies, molded cookies, rolled cookies, pressed cookies, bar cookies, sandwich cookies, and fried cookies. I hazard to guess that there is two other types of cookies, usually undocumented to protect the guilty: the unbaked cookie dough cookie, and the really, really, REALLY well done cookie (okay, we can use the words burnt, charred, incinerated, blackened). L The former we’re all guilty of laughing, but I am pretty sure that the latter, not a SINGLE reader knows what I am talking about!
Cookies are a billion-plus dollar per year industry. Consumers are not just buying the good old standbys like chocolate chip and peanut butter, they are splurging on designer cookies! There are a lot of variations on the chocolate chip cookie it to stand up and be noticed, they are referred with”first” or”classic”.
And what exactly are these ones known as Designer Cookies? What the?? Upon inspection, these kinds are beautiful cookies. Some are recognized as”hand-painted” and”personalized”. They’re WAY to good looking to eat (for that matter to even touch) So what do we do with those cookies? I am sure that they taste as good as they look (right?) Can we eat them? I think not – they are meant to go”ga-ga” over for time to come to respect and talk about late into the night. Pulllleeze!
It is good to know however, even with the way the cookie has evolved, the standbys are keeping up and not being overshadowed by this influx of chocolate chip want-to-be’s. I don’t know about you, but I feel that the conclusion of the chocolate chip cookie would mean the end of civilization as we know it!
According to historical record, the cookie originated in seven century AD Persia. At the point it resembled a hard wafer-like object. They were considered great for traveling on account of their durability, and this enabled the cookie to achieve global recognition. The cookie was enjoyed by everyone – from the filthy rich community to the well, simply plan filthy community. It was in the 1600’s the cookie make its way across the Pacific to North America. Many areas of the world have their own variations on the name, such as biscuits, galletas, keks, and biscotti. What we consider the modern day cookie (and ingredients) originated in the 18th Century. I bet you are wondering when the first cookie was dunked in that cold glass of milk….hmmm
