The English word "cookie" is derived from the Dutch word "koekje," which means little cake. Bakers would test oven temperatures by using smaller portions of batter to make sure they didn't burn the entire batch, according to punchbowl.com.

Today, cookies come in hundreds of different varieties and sizes.
