Cookies, cookies, cookies!!
Cookies have been around for centuries. The soft, chewy ones are cookies, but the crisp cookies are referred to as biscuits in many places. And every year at Christmas, people go cookie crazy!
Modern Christmas cookies can trace their roots all the way back medieval times! The use of such spices as cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg has been around for a very long time. Queen Elizabeth I requested gingerbread cookies be cut in people shapes to honor visiting dignitaries. hence, gingerbread men! Cookies were originally made to test oven temperatures (when stoves were fueled with wood or coal).
During the great depression, parents had children leave cookies for Santa to help them learn the value of sharing. As a result, Santa now eats over Three Hundred MILLION cookies each year! That’s a lot of cookies so you better get cooking!
