If cookies are emotions, they would be joy and happiness. Nothing is as comforting and satisfying as a plateful of cookies and a glass of milk. Cookies are the epitome of happy childhood memories. This was the time when things were simpler and stress-free. The best ever time for us.
Maybe this is why cookies have always been a special treat for kids and adults alike. They elicit a variety of special feelings. Safety, comfort familiarity and love. Each bite envelopes you in a tight warm hug.
And just like the furry big-eyed blue guy, who can resist a chewy cookie oozing with melted chocolate chips? No one, I say. Yup! There is absolutely no one in this world who can resist a cookie!
But did you ever wonder how cookies came to be?
Cookies date back as early as the 7th century AD in Persia ( known more popularly as Iran in the present time).
They were not called cookies yet.
While cakes were already enjoyed by most, cookies were originally not the treats they are today.
They were considered as test cakes. A small amount of cake batter was baked to test the temperature of the oven. This is when oven thermometers were non-existent.
This is to ensure that only a small amount of the cake was ruined in case the temperature was not right.
The word cookie was derived from the Dutch’s koekje. They have different names all over the world.
In England and Australia they are called biscuits.
They are called galletas in Spain while Germans call them keks.
In Italy, they are known as amaretti or biscotti among others.
But no matter how we call this little treat, cookies have become a permanent part of our lives. A permanent fixture to bring us delight and enjoyment. We buy them in packs from the groceries, fresh from bakeries and cookie hubs or we make them from scratch at home.
It’s A Cookie Business
Cookies are undoubtedly loved by so many.
Hence, cookie businesses have sprouted everywhere. From big brands to home baked cookies, almost everyone has joined the cookie bandwagon.
As a starting home baker, you may hesitate to venture in a business. Or specifically a cookie business. It is perfectly understandable. Who would want to go against the big guys, right? Or you might think that the market is saturated already.
Yet, with the growing demand for local and small-scale businesses, this is the best time to start. The pandemic has levelled the field and most home based businesses have seen success.
Cookies are a good product to sell. They are small, handy and delicious. Almost everyone loves them. Cookies are easily packaged and not as delicate as a cake. They have a longer shelf life and there are more varieties to choose from too.
Crispy or chewy? Chocolate or fruit filled? Take your pick.
Also, Christmas is just around the corner. And you know what that means!
Now, if others can do it, why can’t you?
Free Tutorials vs Online Classes
Okay, I’m convinced and I’ll do it you say. I’ll sell cookies! I can find a hundred recipes on social media. No problem.
Before you press that search button. Let me point out a few things.
Sure, you will get a gazillion recipes on You Tube, Pinterest and blogs.
But the question is, are they guaranteed to be good?
In most cases, you will end up experimenting a lot. You’ll wonder why your cookies didn’t end up looking like the ones in the tutorial. You’ll be doing a lot of tweaks and improvements on these recipes which means a lot of ingredients will be wasted. Not to mention your time and effort too.
You’ll easily get frustrated and eventually you might just quit. Worse, you’ll think that you’re not good enough and this might dampen your self-esteem. We wouldn’t like that to happen, would we? Your business will have already ended before it started.
Nope, we won’t like it all!
Thus, go for something that will equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to forge on. A class that will bring you several steps closer to your goal.
This is why it is better to enrol in an online class. Specifically, the Best Ever Cookies Class here at The Bailiwick Academy!

Best Ever Cookies Class

Well yes! The chocolate chip cookie is the most famous cookie ever. And you will learn the best ever version of this cookie in this class! It’s going to be a guaranteed best seller!
For this recipe alone, this class is so worth it already.
However, The Bailiwick Academy went the extra mile and gave us nine more cookie recipes! For a total of ten mouthwatering and delicious cookie treats in one class!
No free tutorial or even other online classes can top that! Let me show you a sneak peak of the class:
Let us start our cookie journey with the Russian Tea Cakes.
These are shortbread-like cookies studded with walnuts and covered in snowy confectioner’s sugar. As the name suggests, it is perfect for afternoon tea. Or coffee.
Second on the list is the Raisin Shortbread Cookies. It is peppered with soft, dark chewy raisins on a buttery shortbread crust that is crispy but melt-in-your mouth at the same time.
Next on the cookie list is the Super Nutty Peanut Butter Cookies. Sweet, rich and full of creamy peanut butter flavor. This is a peanut butter lover’s cookie dream come true!
And who doesn’t love a good Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookie? As its name implies it is a chewy and delicious concoction of oatmeal, raisins, brown sugar and cinnamon! Your kitchen is going to smell oh-so heavenly with these in the oven.
Not to be outdone are the Raspberry Oatmeal Bars. They are reminiscent of the Fig Newtons which are soft pastry-like cookies filled with fig jam. This is the raspberry version. Not only are these yummy, they are so pretty as well. They will be a great addition to your cookie repertoire!
You will also learn the secrets of how to make a to-die-for version of Food for the Gods. This is my personal favorite! Biting into its super chewy center will probably be the most sinful bite you will ever take. A pure indulgence made up of really good pure butter, dates and walnuts. There is absolutely nothing ordinary with this type of sweet pastry. Truly a divine delicacy made for the gods!
Seventh on the list are the Danish Butter Cookies. Who is familiar with the iconic blue tin can filled with golden swirls of buttery goodness? My family used to have these on our dining table all the time. And yours as well I’m sure. Well, Chef Joey’s version is ten times better than the butter cookies we grew up with. Subtly sweet and full of buttery goodness!
Next are the oh-so-popular Milk Chocolate Chunk Cookies! These are an upgraded version of the chocolate chip cookies. Milk chocolate chunks are used instead of the tinier chocolate chips . Just imagine biting into chunks of melty milk chocolate in a chewy crust!
You will not be able to control yourself. One is definitely not enough. Trust me on this. Been there. Done that. This is just so addicting!
And Still More Cookies!
Succeeding the Milk Chocolate Chunk Cookies are the equally popular Chocolate Crinkles. There are so many versions of this out in the market. But I can say that this one is simply the best one. Chewy and full of chocolate goodness, this is surely a best seller!
The last but certainly not the least are the Lemon Bars. You will not be able to resist this heavenly lemony treat. To resist this treat is a sin! Lemon bars are made of extra thick, smooth, tart and creamy lemon curd filling that sits on a buttery shortbread crust and sprinkled generously with powdery white confectioner’s sugar. Sounds divine? Oh yes! You bet it is!
My mouth is watering just by describing all the goodies you will learn from this class. Can’t wait to for you to bake all of these yummy cookies!
