About National Cookie Day (from National Day Calendar)
We can thank the Dutch for more than windmills and tulips. The English word “cookie” is derived from the Dutch word koekie meaning “little cake.” Hard cookie-like wafers have existed for as long as baking has been documented. Not surprisingly, they traveled well. However, they were usually not sweet enough to be considered cookies by modern-day standards.
The origin of the cookie appears to begin in Persia in the 7th century, soon after the use of sugar became common in the region. They then spread to Europe through the Muslim conquest of Spain. Cookies were common at all levels of society throughout Europe by the 14th century, from the royal cuisine to the street vendors. Cookies arrived in America in the 17th century. Macaroons and gingerbread cookies were among the popular early American cookies.
