or at least if they're not building them anymore, they should call them "builts" not "buildings"

They are only called cookies in America - with maybe a few exceptions.

Most other English-speaking peoples call them biscuits.

"Cookie" comes from the Dutch koekje. I am speculating, as my Dutch skills are not what they need to be, but I believe koekje can be transliterated as " (to prepare) a yummy thing that was baked and has chocolate and/or nuts and/or other delicious ingredients".

Baking is a form of cooking, so it seems that calling them cookies isn't too far off.

You're not alone in wondering why they're not called "bakies". A few folks on UrbanDictionary.com are asking the same thing. Maybe if enough people take it up, "bakies" will catch on. Good luck with that.
