Cookies are a food item that first appear in the episode "Tea at the Treedome." They are a notable favorite of SpongeBob SquarePants, served by his grandmother.


Cookies have come in wide varieties and had different appearances over the years, but they are primarily light brown circular cookies with chocolate chips baked into them. A common drink to dip them in is milk.

They have been produced by various people, such as Grandma SquarePants, Sandy Cheeks, Granny, Mrs. Tentacles, and Helen the Felon.
