When was the first Cookie made?

The origin of cookies can be traced back to 7th century AD in Persia, where they were known as "kolompeh" or "qoluche". These early cookies were made from a mixture of ground nuts, honey, and spices, and were often shaped into small balls or pressed into molds. The first cookies that resemble the cookies we know today were made in the 14th century in medieval Europe, where they were called "biscuit" which means "twice-cooked" in old French. These cookies were made from a mixture of flour, sugar, and spices, and were typically hard and dry. Over time, the recipe evolved and butter, eggs, and other ingredients were added, leading to the soft, sweet cookies that we know and love today
