It’s crazy to think that the cookie was an accident, but according to Hallmark Channel’s Ultimate Holiday site, back when ovens didn’t have temperature gauges, bakers would dribble a little cake batter in the oven to be sure it was ready. Finally someone clued in to the fact that these little edibles were amazing and the cookie (from the Dutch word keokje, meaning “little cake”) was born. Who knew?

We wonder if today is WYSK Dawn Casale’s favorite holiday. After all, she is the founder and co-owner of One Girl Cookies.
