To cook gives the noun cookie.

My goodness! Americans, so British!

Err...no. I fear it's because they hate the French people so much. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I remember a two or three page 'filler' in the "Our Army At War" comic from when I was a kid. The storyline was that a little old lady in the states made a batch of cookies and sent them to her grandson (I think) who was serving in the Pacific. The cookies got moldy in the hold of the ship. The G.I. got his package but didn't have time to open it or something, so he just put it in his pack. Anyhow, I think he got captured by the Japanese and they ate his cookies right in front of him to taunt him. They all got sick and died and he was able to escape. The final panel was the little old granny reading a letter from the G.I. that said, "Those were the best cookies ever!"

I'm remembering this from 20 years ago so maybe I've got some of the story details wrong ...<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Spaniards had the best cockies. The secret is knowing when to pull them out of the oven.

The ANZAC Biscuit, as it is known today, owes its origins to the Scottish oat cake and was baked by mothers and sweethearts for soldiers serving in the Gallipoli Campaign of 1915 (as well as for sale at home to raise funds for the war effort).


Since then the ANZAC Biscuit has been a household favourite, in fact, it has become an icon in both New Zealand and Australia.

The tasty non-perishable ANZAC Biscuit was a welcome addition to the basic rations issued to our soldiers at Gallipoli, not least the much-loathed Army Biscuit.


In his 1919 official history
The New Zealanders at Gallipoli, Major Fred Waite DSO recalled:

The army biscuits can never be forgotten...their hardness was beyond belief...so hard that it was nibbled round the edges and tossed into No Man's Land.

They served just as effectivly in WWII, Korea and Vietnam...how many cookies can say that http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

I always thought the North American word "cookie" came from the Pennsylvania "Dutch" (actually German) word "Kuchen". Which is German for biscuit.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

This knocks the subject off WW2 cookies-but,I remember as a kid,buying Vietnam era K-ration "Candy/Crackers" cans,just to get the chocalate at the bottom.
It was like a Crunch bar,only better.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Lyrics from Naked Raygun's "Rat Patrol".
"What we need to take control,we could use the Rat Patrol.What's that coming over the dune?...
Chasing the halftracks across the sandflats,got a nice pine box,for that desert fox,machine guns blaring,and Arabs staring wondering why,the Westerners are there.It's the same old story,and it'll happen again."
