Types Of Cookies

What are different Types Of Cookies? A cookie can refer to any round, sweet, flat, hand-sized baked good, a plain bun, or a computer cookie. This article discusses the edible types of cookies. Although the name is Dutch in origin, koekie (little cake), cookies are found in countries all over the world. They are a popular desert and snack amongst people of all ages. The different types of cookies have been classified into nine groups. There are filled cookies, bar cookies, molded cookies, no-bake cookies, drop cookies, pressed cookies, refrigerator cookies, rolled cookies, and sandwich cookies.

Now a detailed look at the nine types of cookies. A filled cookie means that the dough has been stuffed with some form of confection or fruit. A bar cookie is made in a pan and then cut into bars. The most common bar cookie is the brownie. Molded cookies are shaped by hand into a specific shape using a firm dough. Biscottis are a type of molded cookie. A no-bake cookie is exactly what it sounds like. No baking is required. The ingredients are mixed with a melted binder and then left to cool and harden. A drop cookie is made by dropping spoonfuls of dough onto a baking sheet, think chocolate chip. A pressed cookie is made using a cookie press. A cookie press is a special device made from a tube filled with dough and a patterned lid. The dough is pushed through the openings in the lid and forms a design on the baking sheet. Refrigerator cookies are made from a stiff, firm dough that is rolled up and left in the refrigerator to become even firmer. They are then sliced into cookies or rolled out on a work surface to be cut into shapes these are called rolled cookies. The last type of cookie is the sandwich cookie. This is when two cookies are stacked with a filling in between them.

Although there are only nine different groups for all the various types of cookies, the combinations are endless. The cookie comes in countless varieties and flavors. In the United Kingdom, cookies are called biscuits. Most of the time, the term biscuit is used for the sweetened desert form, but it can reference a more savory creation. Biscuits are sometimes made with cheeses or other dairy products in place of sugar. In most regions the terms are interchangeable, and cookie and biscuit mean the same thing. In the United States, a biscuit is more closely related to a scone or shortbread.
