Favorite brands such as Oreos, Animal crackers, Nilla Wafers, Girl Scout Cookies, and Mallomars aside, cookies known to Americans everywhere include chocolate chip, peanut butter, oatmeal and oatmeal raisin, fortune cookies, sugar cookies, pecan sandies, and, arguably, Graham crackers. On the other hand, some cookies have distinct regional character: biscochitos (the official state cookie of New Mexico), black & whites (a New York favorite), benne wafers (sesame cookies from Charleston), butter brickle (Midwestern toffee cookies), snickerdoodles (originally Pennsylvania Dutch), and rugelach in big-city Jewish delis. Some of the country’s most interesting cookies are unique to one particular place, such as pie crust cookies from the Julian Pie Company in California and pink cookies from Champagne’s bakery in Cajun Louisiana.
