Do you know these about cookies?

Did you know that the cookies we love and eat today come about by chance? In the past, bakers used to tear small pieces of pastry dough into their ovens to test if their oven was getting hot enough. These small test doughs were called "koekje", which means "small cake" in Dutch. One day, this "koekje" was crunchy and very tasty. This sweet coincidence has turned into “Cookie” in English and became one of the most popular foods of our time.
