A cookie is a small, flat, sweet, baked good, usually containing flour, eggs, sugar, and either butter, cooking oil or another oil or fat. It may include other ingredients such as raisins, oats, chocolate chips or nuts.

In most English-speaking countries except for the US and Canada, crisp cookies are called biscuits. Chewier biscuits are sometimes called cookies even in the UK. Some cookies may also be named by their shape, such as date squares or bars.

Cookies or biscuits may be mass-produced in factories, made in small bakeries or home-made. Biscuit or cookie variants include sandwich biscuits such as Custard creams, Jammy Dodgers, Bourbons and Oreos, with marshmallow or jam filling and sometimes dipped in chocolate or another sweet coating. Cookies are often served with beverages such as milk, coffee or tea. Factory-made cookies are sold in grocery stores, convenience stores and vending machines. Fresh-baked cookies are sold at bakeries and coffeehouses, with the latter ranging from small business-sized establishments to multinational corporations such as Starbucks.

Cookie (video game)

Cookie is an action- platform video game developed and published by Ultimate Play The Game that was released exclusively for the ZX Spectrum in 1983. In the game, Charlie the Chef has to bake a cake, however his five ingredients are sentient and attempt to escape his pantry, enabling his quest to re-capture them.

The game was written by Chris Stamper, and graphics were designed by Tim Stamper. Cookie was one of the few Spectrum games also available in ROM format for use with the Interface 2, allowing "instantaneous" loading of the game (the normal method of cassette loading could take several minutes). A version was also created for the BBC Micro, but was not commercially released. The game received mixed reviews upon release, with critics praising the graphics, but criticising the hard difficulty and its similarities to Pssst.

Cookie (manga magazine)

Cookie is a Japanese Josei, and Shōjo manga magazine published bimonthly by Shueisha. As of 2008, the circulation was about 175,000, which by 2015 had declined to 56,000, part of an industry-wide trend.

Cookie is related to Ribon. Ribon Comic, a monthly magazine which was a sister magazine of Ribon, changed its title to Bouquet (ぶ〜け) in 1978. Bouquet stopped publication in March 2000.

In 1996, the Ribon editing department at Shueisha began publishing a manga magazine called Ribon Teens which featured a mixture of both the then-new and popular Ribon manga artists like Ai Yazawa, Miho Obana, and Mihona Fujii, and classic Ribon manga artists like Jun Hasegawa, Koi Ikeno, and Aoi Hiiragi. This magazine was published a couple of times in 1996 and 1997 before folding. In 1999, Shueisha revived the Ribon Teens concept in a new magazine which soon received the title Cookie. The first issue of Cookie was soon published and the second issue followed in 2000 and being published on the 26th of each month.

At that time, the former Bouquet editing department was made into the Cookie editing department. The editor-in-chief had been a former editor-in-chief of Ribon. Cookie began being published monthly starting from the May 2000 issue, and switched to being published bimonthly in July 2012.

Today, the manga artists featured in Cookie are a mixture of former Bouquet manga artists (some series that ran in Bouquet, such as Toriko Chiya's Clover and Yumi Ikefuji's Zoccha no Nichijou, were transferred to Cookie) and former Ribon manga artists such as Miho Obana and Ai Yazawa. There are also some new manga artists as well.

Perhaps the most popular manga in Cookie is Nana. It was one of the first manga to run in ''Cookie ''and still continues today, and is also being published in many other countries around the world.

Cookie (cockatoo)

Cookie (hatched June 30, 1933 in Australia) is a male Major Mitchell's cockatoo residing at Brookfield Zoo, near Chicago, Illinois, United States. He is believed to be the oldest member of his species alive in captivity, at the age of 82 in June 2015, having significantly exceeded the average lifespan for his kind. He is one of the longest-lived birds on record and has been recognised by the Guinness World Records as the oldest living parrot in the world. The next-oldest Major Mitchell's cockatoo to be found in a zoological setting is a 31-year-old female bird located at Paradise Wildlife Sanctuary, England. Information published by the World Parrot Trust states longevity for Cookie's species in captivity at 40–60 years.

Cookie is Brookfield Zoo's oldest resident and the only surviving member of the animal collection from the time of the zoo's opening in 1934, having arrived from Taronga Zoo of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, in the same year and judged to be one year old at the time.

In 2007, Cookie was diagnosed with and placed on medication and nutritional supplements for osteoarthritis and osteoporosis – medical conditions which occur commonly in aging animals and humans alike, although it is believed that the latter may also have been brought on as a result of being fed a seed-only diet for the first 40 years of his life, in the years before the dietary requirements of his species were fully understood.

Cookie was "retired" from exhibition at the zoo in 2009 (following a few months of weekend-only appearances) in order to preserve his health, after it was noticed by staff that his appetite, demeanour and stress levels improved markedly when not on public display. He now lives permanently in the keepers' office of the zoo's Perching Bird House, although it has been stated that he may still make occasional appearances for special events such as his birthday celebration, which is held each June. As of 2013, he is still considered to be in good health for his age.
