Did you know ? The cookie originates in the 12th century on the Persian side, arrives in Europe thanks to the Muslim conquests in Spain, goes back to the north of the continent and the Dutch take it with them to America in the 18th century. The cookie is nothing but a cookie, it is almost the literal translation. At the end of the 19th century, two cooks in Massachusetts had the brilliant idea of slipping chocolate chips into their cookie dough. The cookie as we know it was launched. Not complicated to make, it appeals to everyone and especially to children.
