    see Cooky


  1. Cookie

    In the United States, Canada and Australia a cookie is a small, flat, baked treat, usually containing fat, flour, eggs and sugar. In Scotland the term cookie is sometimes used to describe a plain bun. In most English-speaking countries outside North America, including the United Kingdom, the most common word for a small, flat, baked treat, usually containing fat, flour, eggs and sugar is biscuit and the term cookie is often used to describe drop cookies exclusively. However, in many regions both terms are used, such as the American-inspired Maryland Cookies, while in others the two words have different meanings. In the United States a biscuit is a kind of quick bread similar to a scone.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Cookie

    kook′i, n. a kind of sweet cake used at tea.—n. Cookie-shine, a tea-party. [Dut. koekje, a cake.]

The New Hacker's Dictionary

  1. cookie

    A handle, transaction ID, or other token of agreement between cooperating programs. “I give him a packet, he gives me back a cookie.” The claim check you get from a dry-cleaning shop is a perfect mundane example of a cookie; the only thing it's useful for is to relate a later transaction to this one (so you get the same clothes back). Syn. magic cookie; see also fortune cookie. Now mainstream in the specific sense of web-browser cookies.
