Cookies (food)
Cookies (food) are those delicious, sweet treats that people just can’t seem to get enough of. They’re small, often round, and usually made of flour, sugar, and butter. Cookies are a guilty pleasure – they’re sweet and delicious, but they’re not always the healthiest snack. They’ve been around for centuries, with ancient Romans baking cookies known as “biscotti” as early as the 7th century BC. And, of course, cookies have been a staple in the American kitchen for decades. In fact, the average American consumes about 300 cookies per year – that’s about six cookies per week! But, let’s get real – cookies are delicious and that’s why people love them. Whether you prefer chocolate chip, oatmeal, peanut butter, or sugar cookies, there’s a cookie out there for everyone. Fun fact: the world’s largest cookie ever made was over 100 feet in diameter and weighed 40,000 pounds! That’s a lot of cookie love!
