Have you recently installed ifonts app?
I saw that I also had this file throughout my sdcard.
The only thing I can think of is that it has something to do with how ifonts deals with replacing and/or backing up your current Fonts.
I found your post after a google search about it. But there is not much info about it (that I can find)
It may be that everyone knows what these .tcookied files are and me and you are a pair of idiots lol.
But I figured I'd post just so you wouldn't feel on your own! :P
I'm gonna keep searching for answers and if I find anything I'll let you know.

there could have been an update to ifonts recently, in the past few days, cant really remember as i have so much stuff getting updated daily. but ifonts makes sense as to what is making this small file. its harmless anyway, just wondered why it was appearing. surprised no one else has picked up on it here on XDA (apart from ourselves)...
