7 Fun Facts About Cookies!
Credits to fifteenspatulas.com1) Biscotti cookies are famous around the world! You can find them anywhere at your nearby general stores. They are best enjoyed with a hot or warm cup of tea and they also have varieties and flavours! But did you know that biscotti cookies are baked twice? They are called as 'cantuccini' in several areas. So if you're in Italy, Prato where biscotti is originated from, and you're craving for biscottis, make sure you say cantuccinis instead of biscottis! :D

2) Out of the vast varieties of cookies in the United States, Chocolate Chip Cookies are the most popular among all. (If you ask us, 'A-Fookies !', it would be Caramel Pudding Cookies and also Oreo Pudeo!). Did you know that chocolate chip cookies were made by accident? A very big thank you from all the people across the world to Ruth Graves Wakefield (check out this grandma, she's kinda hot though HAHA...when she was young), who experimented her dough in 1933 to replace nuts with chocolate chips! She then set up her business named Toll House which was actually an inn previously and remained the number one pioneer in cookie making and morsels till now!

4) Have you ever watched the movie, 'Shrek' before? Remember that Gingerman who puked chocolate chips? HAHA! Gingerbread cookies from Germany were the first cookies ever associated with Christmas around the world. Strange, and we thought that they were associated in America!
