Cookies are one of those dessert recipes that have been around for a very long time. There have been many variations on cookie recipes with different flavours and ingredients. The name cookie is comes from the Dutch word koekje, which means a small cake. Cookies are also called biscuits in some areas like England and biscuit comes from the Latin word bis coctum which is twice baked. In the past, bakers used to make cookies as small testers of their cake batter. They would bake a little cake to test how the cake batter would turn out after baking it. The earliest cookie recipes go back to 7th century Persia which is now Iran. This was one of the first places in the world to cultivate sugar which lead to creating cookie recipes and other dessert recipes.
At the end of the 14th-century cookies in the form of wafers were sold in Paris as street food and there were many yummy cookie recipes found in cookbooks of that time. A cookbook by Thomas Dawson from 1596 called Goode Huswife’s Jewel was one of the first cookbooks in England. The cookie recipes included egg yolks and spices, and they were baked on parchment paper. Then, cookies became the perfect travel food for people, and they were also brought over to America by English, Scotch, and Dutch immigrants. American butter cookies are much like their shortbreads and teacakes. The number of easy homemade cookies recipes has grown over the years, and now there are thousands of different cookie recipes from all over the world. From simple butter cookies like these raspberry meltaway cookies to chocolate chip cookies and triple chocolate cookies, there's a cookie recipe for everyone. Including fruit in yummy cookie recipes like this one from Butter With A Side Of Bread is a great idea too. In this case, Jessica from Butter With A Side Of Bread uses raspberry jam without seeds.
You can find raspberry jam without seeds at most grocery stores. There are usually entire isles in the grocery store dedicated to jams and jellies. Sometimes you can even find jams with lower sugar content too or made with healthier sweeteners like stevia or honey. You could also make your very own raspberry jam too if you wanted to. All you need is a bunch of fresh or frozen raspberries, some sugar, lemon juice and salt to make a quick raspberry jam. If you have raspberry bushes in your yard, you can even get them for free. So all you'd do to make your own raspberry jam is put all of the ingredients in a skillet and cook them up until it boils. Then, you can strain the seeds out using a sieve and then store the jam in the fridge for up to one month or use it in this recipe. In this case, the jam is added on the top of the cookies with the glaze so it will bring some flavour to the cookies as well as a nice touch of colour.
