National Cookie Day is observed annually on December 4th. We can thank the Dutch for more than windmills and tulips. The English word “cookie” is derived from the Dutch word “koekie” meaning little cake.There have been cookie-like hard wafers in existence for as long as baking has been documented. This is because they traveled well however, they were usually not sweet enough to be considered cookies by modern day standards.
I hope you all have had some cookies with the beverage of your choice. Coffee, milk and tea are good options. No matter what cookie you like there is one that can satisfy ones sweet tooth.
