The long history of the cookie
It seems that the origin of cookies can be traced to Persia, as far back as the 7th century BC. Some historians assert instead that the first cookie was baked in ancient Rome. The earliest traces date back to texts attributable to Apicius, a Roman gourmet who lived in the 1st century AD, during the time of Tiberius.
The Middle Ages is the period in which there is the most evidence of products very similar to our cookies, including pan pepato, hard, crisp cookies, and the forerunners of the meringue. The cookie, as we know it today, is a French invention: in fact, in 14th-century Paris it was possible to buy tasty little wafers filled with fruit.
The word cookie comes from the Latin "biscoctus panis," bread baked twice, which becomes "biscuit" in English. In contrast, the term "cookie" has Dutch origins: in fact, it comes from the word "koekje," small or round cake, like the small pieces of dough that Dutch bakers used in their ovens to test the temperature. The first cookies also composed of butter and sugar entered the culinary scene in the 18th century. So many cookie recipes are found in the 19th century, when the availability of sugar, flour, and yeast became more continuous.
For example, the classic Cookie, or chocolate chip cookie was invented only in 1937 in Whitman, Massachusetts, USA. In Italy, for example, Savoiardi biscuits take their name from Savoy, part of the Savoy kingdom, and date back to the late 15th century, when they were created at the court of the Dukes of Savoy in honor of a visit by the King of France. The chocolate-coated cookie, on the other hand, only became popular after World War II.
