Once upon a time...
There was no such thing as chocolate chip cookies. Yes, my dear blogger friends, it is a sad, sad fact. Whilst drudging through my copyedits for my next release (The Matchmaker's Match, September 2015), my very thorough copy editor informed me that in 1815 England, chocolate chip cookies were not invented yet.
Of course I had to Google that factoid.
To my great chagrin, I found out she was right (yay for copyeditors for saving me from horrid errors!)
So what was available to our Regency heroes and heroines?
Lots of delicious foods. And some slightly odd ones. Here's a link that will take you to a neat page displaying pictures and names of Regency desserts.
What is your favorite kind of cookie? Are you completely shocked that chocolate chip cookies are a relatively new treat?
