Melted chocolate on a homemade cookie, makes me feel happy. Even talking about cookies makes my tummy rumble.And is your mouth watering? For hundreds of years cookies have been a long loved snack.

The first cookies were created by accident. Cooks used a small amount of cake batter to test their oven temperature before baking a large cake. These little test cakes were called "koekje", meaning "little cake" in Dutch.

The Dutch  brought “koekje” to America and it was there that the Dutch word became the English word cookie.Cookies were mostly made in home kitchens because sugar costs so much.

There are different kinds of cookies such as Nut Cookies, fruit Cookies, chocolate Cookies and all sort of cookies. New Zealand and Australia make ANZAC cookies. My favorite flavor is Vanilla because it is soft and mushy.     

Cookies are made from butter, sugar, eggs and flour. You can add other stuff like chocolate chips. Ruth wakefield was the person who invented chocolate chip cookies.  In 1930, Wakefield was mixing a batch of cookies for her roadside inn guests when she discovered that she was out of baker's chocolate. She swapped broken pieces of Nestle's semi-sweet chocolate, expecting it to melt and absorb into the dough to create chocolate cookies.
Sometimes cookies are good for you if you use less sugar and put in healthy stuff like nuts and fruit.There are different kinds of cookies such as Nut Cookies, fruit Cookie and chocolate Cookies.New Zealand and Australia make ANZAC cookies which are made with flour , Custer sugar ,  coconut ,oats , butter , golden syrup and baking soda.
I bet after telling you about yummy cookies that your tummies are rumbling. What are your favourite cookies?
