Cookie. A small cakelike product, either flat or slightly raised, usually - but not always - with a relatively low moisture content, made from a dough or batter that is sufficiently viscous to permit the dough pieces to be baked on a flat surface. Cookies come in an infinite variety of shapes, sizes, composition, texture, tenderness, colors and tastes. The term is synonymous with biscuit as used in other countries.
