Biscuits (known as cookies in North America) are, generally, small, flat, baked treats that can be eaten during dessert or as a snack.

History

In 1994, House-elfs brought tea and a large tray of biscuits to Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley, and Hermione Granger while they were visiting Dobby and Winky in the kitchens at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[1]

In 1995, Minerva McGonagall offered a Ginger Newt biscuit to Harry Potter after hearing that he had shouted at Dolores Umbridge and called her a liar for denying that Lord Voldemort had returned.[2]
