"ciasteczka", regardless of what many learners seem to think, is a plural noun. It means "cookies". Unless what the sentence needs is Genitive singular, because as most neuter nouns, its Genitive singular is identical to Nominative/Accusative plural.
This must stem from the fact that it has been introduced before the singular "ciasteczko", and also that singular "ciasteczko" somehow has been introduced in the skill "Plurals". That is a bit of a mess, I'm afraid.
It's an unusual ending for a noun in Nominative (so 'the basic form'), but some nouns have this ending. Apart from "zwierzę" itself, it's mostly an ending used for baby animals, so that's rather more advanced vocabulary. Also, "niemowlę" (a baby, one that doesn't speak yet).
