In the United States and Canada a cookie is a small, flat, sweet baked treat. Cookies usually contain flour, eggs, sugar, and either butter, cooking oil or another oil or fat, and often including ingredients such as raisins, oats, chocolate chips or nuts. Cookies may be massproduced, made in small bakeries or home-made. Cookie variants include using two thin cookies with a creme filling and dipping the cookie in chocolate or another sweet coating. Cookies are often served with beverages such as milk, coffee or tea. In many other English speaking countries cookies are called biscuits. Cookies are most commonly baked until crisp or just long enough that they remain soft, but some kinds of cookies are not baked at all.
