What would the Holidays be with out the cookie? This mouthful of joy is said to have been coveted for thousands of years. Egyptians enjoyed them at rituals. Neolithic farmers are believed to have subsited off a crude form baked on hot rocks. In some cultures it was considered a slight and bad omen if you left your hosts home without trying their petite confections. Dutch settler's brought their Koeptje (small cakes) to the new world. The Koeptje became the cookie and holiday gift giving has never looked back.
