‘Cookie’ word comes from the Dutch word ‘koejke’ meaning a small cake. Cookies were initially made just to test the temperature of the oven. The cooks in the past use to just put a little prepared cake dough into the oven to test whether the oven had heated enough to bake the cakes or not. Unknowingly they discovered the cookies and that is how cookies started being made for selling purposes and was welcomed warmly by all. Therefore, initially there was no specific recipe to make cookies but now-a-days lot many kinds of cookies are available in the market and they all are made of unique recipes.
However, cookies markets have been flourishing then onwards and have started being made with intentions of making it. There are various ways in which cookies are baked these days as per the choice and taste of the maker. One way of baking cookies is to dropping the cake dough with table spoon on the cookie sheets. This is a classic way to bake cookies and generally cookies would be of round shape only with this method. Secondly by molding the cookie dough with hand any sorts of shapes can be made by this method. This method is specially used for oatmeal cookie as it cannot be dropped on the cookie sheet with the spoon. Third recipe is the one in which you can roll the dough after chilling it for some time so that it can be handled. Another most popular method is baking cookie bars. This simply requires cookie dough to be spread in the tray and then it is chopped into bars after baking and cooling it.
However, no matter which recipe is used to bake cookies it is its taste and maybe it is the love and caring attention that is evident in cookies. Home, love, and cookies seem to go together.
