Fun fact

The English word cookie entered the English language through American English as early as 1703. It is a loan word based on the Dutch koekje, which in turn is the diminutive form of koek or cake. So a cookie is a “little cake”.

Fast forward almost three centuries and you’ll see the English word cookie reenter the Dutch language in its modern web-based incar­nation. In 1998, to be exact. It’s the revenge of the Little Cake Monster!
