Cookies are small, thin, flat, and cake-like baked treats. The name cookie is derived from the Dutch word “Koekje”, meaning “small or little cake”. Cookies are also known as “Biscuits” in England & Australia, in Italy, they have many names including “Amaretti” & “Biscotti”, the Spanish call them “Galletas” and in Germany, they’re known as “Keks”.
Bakers in the past used to bake a small amount of cake batter to check the right oven temperature to bake and so in the process, cookies came into existence accidentally during this process of making “test cakes”. Cookies now are made from a variety of different cooking techniques and ingredients to produce cookies with a range of different textures, styles, and shapes.

About Chocolate Walnut Drop Cookies
The Chocolate Walnut Drop Cookies as the name suggests are drop cookies. It’s a modern cookie and a cross between the brownie and cookie. Soft inside and crusty outside is what makes this cookie delicious. These cookies are of a large size, making each one of them a big filler and the cocoa powder & chocolate make them rich and decadent.
The crisp crumbly texture of the cookie with the melted chocolate chips at the center gives it a perfect combination of being fudgy and crusty.
