Expert Tips

  • The word cookie comes from the Dutch word for cake, "koekje". The first cookies were actually tiny cakes baked as a test to make sure that the oven temperature was right for baking a larger cake.
  • Feeling a little nutty? Go ahead and add 1 cup coarsely chopped nuts with the chocolate chips.
