How to Make Your Very Own Milk and Cookie Shot

Cookies have always been a favorite for young and old alike, I still remember each and every one of my mother and grandmothers best cookie recipes, and I'm sure my children will remember all my recipes when they get older. Some cookie recipes just stand out from others, and that's how I felt when I saw How to Make Your Very Own Milk and Cookie Shot.

Cookie, is the North American name for a small, usually flat, baked sweet treat, that often contains butter, eggs, flour, oil and sugar, popular additional ingredients can include but are not limited to chocolate chips, raisins, fruits and oats. Another name used in the United Kingdom and some english speaking countries is biscuit. Cookies are usually baked till crisp, but only long enough, so they still remain somewhat soft and not hard to the bite (which isn't true for biscotti cookies). Cookies have been around since the inception of baking.

Cookies seem to have started in Persia some time around the seventh century when sugar became common to that region The popularity of cookies then spread to Europe, from royal households to street vendors. Cookies came to America in the 1600's through the Dutch, in New Amsterdam. The name cookie actually derived from the Dutch word "kookie" which was then anglicized to "cookie" or cooky.

There are so many different varieties of cookies, too many to list, with favorite recipes from countries all over the world. Some popular cookies can include: animal crackers, biscotti, chocolate chip cookies, ginger snaps, gingerbread houses, gingerbread cookies, graham cookies, meringues, oatmeal cookies, peanut butter cookies, pizelles, rum balls, russian tea cakes, shortbread cookies, sugar cookies, tea biscuits, thumbprints and wafers, and this is only to name a few.
