National Cookie Day is observed annually on December 4th. The
English word “cookie” is derived from the Dutch word “koekie”
meaning little cake.

The origin of the cookie appears to begin in Persia in the 7th century,
soon after the use of sugar became common in the region.  They were
then spread to Europe through the Muslim conquest of Spain. Cookies
were common in all levels of society throughout Europe by the 14th
century, from the royal cuisine to the street vendors

Cookies arrived in America in the 17th century.  Macaroons and
gingerbread cookies were among the popular early American
cookies.
