You say Cooky; I say Cookie...

My friend Angela wrote me about this book:

About the book, she says:

Your mention of the cookies made me want to tell you about this book (circa 1963) that my mother in law recently gave to us. It has all the classic 'cooky' recipes and also a section that goes through all the "best cooky of the decade" going back to 1880. On the chocolate chip cooky it says: "This luscious cooky from the New England Toll House, Whitman, Mass., enjoyed immediate and continued popularity. It was introduced to homemakers in 1939 on our radio series 'Famous Foods from Famous Places'." I want to make them all!

Pat again: I wonder when it got changed from cooky to cookie.
