The first cookies are supposed to be test cakes that bakers use to test the oven temperature. They come from Persia, today's Iran, from the 7th century AD. They were one of the first countries where sugar cane was grown and harvested.Luxurious cakes and pastries were a well-known treat of the incredibly wealthy Persian Empire.

Gradually, with war and the development of the spice trade, sugar was introduced to the Mediterranean and European countries

14th Century

Wafer-like cookie was appeared at the Paris food market by the 14th-century.

16-17th Century

Teacake became very popular in Europe. These shortbread biscuits were very similar to today's shortbread biscuits, but with less sugar. They didnt taste quite sweet as your traditional cookie. On the contrary, they have a richer taste and cream.

As Europeans entered the Americas, they also brought cookie recipes.And soon they adapted the recipe, then American butter cookies appeared.So American butter cookies have a lot to do with English teacake and Scottish shortbread.
