The word “COOKIE” brings a smile to your face. How can it not? Nothing can be more comforting than a warm cookie and glass of cold milk; or a cup of tea and a Bourbon biscuit. We make mixers and cookie/biscuit sandwiching machines for manufactures of sweets all around the world. It’s fascinating to discover what cookies or biscuits (depending on where you are located) are popular in South Africa, China or Brazil.
In Japan, finished squares of Yokan (which look very much like our American chocolate fudge), are wrapped in cherry leaves and served as a sweet indulgence with a cup of tea.
In Spain they prefer Panellets which are a traditional dessert made with marzipan (almonds and sugar) usually covered in pine nuts.
The macaroon is a cookie filled with a variety of fillings and flavors. Paris, France is the place to visit for these!
Sweden loves their Pepparkakors. Paper-thin and spicy, these cookies are a beloved Swedish Christmas tradition.
No matter where you are in the world, cookies and biscuits are an important part of our culture. It could be Boortsog in China, Pryanik in Russia or Stroopwaffels in Belgium, nothing is more delicious!
We all have our favorites———–What’s yours?
