What Are Cookies Called Elsewhere?
It’s interesting to discover cookie recipes from other countries. Do you know what cookies are called in other countries?
Germans call cookies "keks" or "Platzchen". Cookies are actually referred to as "biscuits" in both England and Australia. The Spanish people call cookies "galletas" and the Italians call cookies "amaretti" and "biscotti" to name a few.
The original name ‘cookie’ came from the Dutch word koekje, which means small or little cake. So why are they called this?
Historians say that a long time ago, chefs and cooks wanted to see if the oven temperature was high enough to bake the cake, so they would put small amounts of batter onto a sheet and cook it to test the oven temperature. The result was a small cake, which we know today as a cookie.
