Sweet cookie dough is quite different from the yeast pastry. Think
of a cookie with a filling versus a poppy seed filled danish. All of
my sources also note that the cookie dough is very recent and the
danish type dough is the more traditional.
I grew up only knowing about the danish type until I was in
college. I am very traditional in my observance.
