Typically a cookie is a dessert recipe that is a small, flat, sweet baked treat. Cookie recipes usually contain flour, sugar, eggs, and either cooking oil, butter or another oil or fat. Cookie recipes may also include ingredients such as oats, raisins, chocolate chips or nuts. Cookies can be mass-produced, or made at home or in small bakeries. Cookie options can also include using two thin cookies with a creme filling and then dipped in chocolate or another sweet coating. Cookies are quite often served with beverages such as tea, coffee or milk. In many other English speaking countries, cookies are called biscuits. Cookies are most often baked until they are crisp or just long enough so that they remain soft, but some kinds of cookies are not baked at all. Some popular cookie recipes include pizelles, rum balls, sugar cookie, tea biscuit, and wafers.
