Cookies too can have their own personalities that speak of where they came from and have pedigrees that prove their noble lineage. It is not unusual to see families guarding secret cookie recipes for generations. They have recipes that their great great grandmothers have created. Many of them have conserved the original recipes and up to this day baked cookies using ingredients called for in the original hundred of years old cookie recipes. People around the world also have their own venerable cookie recipes. In Spain for example, they have galletas and from Italy we get the familiar biscotti. Germany has keks and the English call them biscuits.
Cookie historians describe the first cookies in history as test cakes. Bakers during that time used a little amount of what was to be baked as whole cakes to test if the temperature of the oven is just about right. Cookies today come in many sweet varieties. They have been created in response to millions of sweet toothed cookie lovers around the globe. You can think of a possible cookie ingredient and chances are somebody somewhere around the world has created a version using that ingredient.

The Fig Newton Cookies have a rather controversial origin as there are two camps vying for the honors of being their inventor. The first fig Newton cookies were made in 1891 as asserted by the Nabisco Company. According to them, it was James Henry Mitchell who invented the machine that made this cookie. Another story says that it was C.M. Roser who sold his cookie and candy business that made these famous cookies to Nabisco. This claim however has not been verified and no proofs have been presented to back up the claim.
