As long as there has been baking, there have been cookies. No, really. I looked it up. Of course, they’re not the cookies we know and love today. Cookies were more like wafers, and were baked because they were easy to travel with. In the 7th century, when the use of sugar became common in Persia, cookies somewhat similar to ours started to appear. From there, the cookie spread throughout Europe due to the Muslim conquest of Spain. By the 14th century all of Europe had hopped on the cookie wagon, though they wouldn’t resemble the cookies we know today until the 18th century.
Why all the cookie trivia? I’m glad you asked. The Yum Yum Cupcake Truck – Orlando’s favorite cupcake food truck, & Whisk and Bowl – the place to shop for the best quality baking tools, teamed up to make one delicious cookie. We were there to document it all. Take a peak of what happens when two titans of the kitchen come together.
If you’re interested in watching them bake the cookies from start to finish, follow this link to our YouTube video. They go through the process step by step and give some great tips, too. The recipe will follow in a few days.
The Yum Yum Cupcake Truck will be featuring those mouthwatering cookies at the Windermere Food Truck Bazar on July 25th. Karen from Whisk and Bowl will be joining the Yum Yum guys on the truck too.
Karen Manfredi of Whisk & Bowl & Alex Marin from The Yum Yum Cupcake Truck show off their cookies!
