The modern sugar cookie was originally called the Nazareth Sugar Cookie, after German Protestants who settled in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, and improved the recipe. When forming the dough, they made the cookies resemble the state's keystone emblem.
A sugar cookie is a cookie with the main ingredients being sugar, flour, butter, eggs, vanilla, and either baking powder or baking soda (depending on the type of sugar used). Sugar cookies may be formed by hand, dropped, or rolled and cut into shapes.
The average American will eat 35,000 cookies in their lifetime. The world's largest chocolate chip cookie weighed in at more than 40,000 pounds! This cookie was 102-feet-wide and was baked by the Immaculate Baking Company in Flat Rock, North Carolina in 2003.
