Happy National Cookie Day! With the holiday season in full gear, there’s lots of reasons to bake all kinds of cookies, from the classic chocolate chip cookie to the simple sugar cookie. Did you know that cookies were invented by accident? Dutch bakers wanted to test out the temperature in their ovens before baking cakes, so they used small batches of cake mix as a “food thermometer.” They soon found these little morsels to be tasty and thus the cookie was born. These bakers called these ”koekje”, meaning “little cake” in Dutch.
