A cookie was an old Earth food item usually made of water, flour, sugar, and other ingredients, and baked in an oven. Cookies were sweet, and were served as a snack or for dessert. They were often kept in cookie jars. (ENT: "Breaking the Ice")

Shannon O'Donnel had a ritual of purchasing a bag of chocolate chip cookies whenever she went back on the road to "treat herself". Her eventual husband, Henry Janeway, preferred oatmeal cookies since he was allergic to chocolate. (VOY: "11:59")

In the script for "Family", Marie Picard walked in on Jean-Luc Picard and Robert Picard, both drenched in mud after a fight, at the dinner table eating cheese and fruit, and "they look up like children caught with their hands in the cookie jar".
