Making desserts was not my forte, until my sister in law came to visit me. She told me about a simple and quick cookie recipe that she had seen on the food network channel. Can we call cookies desserts? Well, it depends where you are from or where you live. In United States a cookie is a small, flat, baked treat. In Scotland a cookie is a plain bun, however in most English speaking countries outside North America the most common name for a small, flat, baked treat is biscuit.
