What are cookies?

A cookie is also called a biscuit in most countries except in the US and Canada Even in  the UK a chewier biscuit is called a cookie.

A baked goodie a Cookies uses flour, sugar and some fat and any optional ingredients like raisins, oats, chocolate chips, nuts, etc.

Cookies are often served with beverages such as milk, coffee or tea.

According to Wikipedia,” Cookies appear to have their origins in 7th century AD Persia, shortly after the use of sugar became relatively common in the region.[1] They spread to Europe through the Muslim conquest of Spain. By the 14th century, they were common in all levels of society throughout Europe, from royal cuisine to street vendors.”

Cookies came to America through the Dutch in New Amsterdam in the late 1620s. The Dutch word “koekje” was Anglicized to “cookie” or cooky.”

The main ingredients in Peanut Butter and Jelly Thumbprint Cookies are peanuts or groundnuts, oats, maida, butter, sugar and jam. I have used an egg you can substitute it with 1/4 cup curds or yoghurt.

    With jelly topping cookies are quite tempting. Oats give a nice crunch to cookies and peanuts, yum!
