Ensconced in the family’s Colorado cabin located on Cooper Street, Michigan mom, Elaine Surnow, found a generations-old family cookie recipe and began to bake. Unsatisfied with all the big-company, junk-filled alternatives, and unwilling to compromise on taste, she was determined to build a better cookie for family & friends. Using only simple & pure local ingredients and with love and attention to every detail, Elaine baked and sliced and baked again to create a delightfully crisp and light cookie that became an instant holiday smash.
Today, Elaine’s original recipe based on quality ingredients with no nuts, no dairy and nothing artificial is delighting cookie lovers of all ages. With just the right combination of delicate sweetness, light crunch and old-fashioned goodness, Cooper Street Cookies are the perfect accompaniment to your favorite beverage or an indulgent anytime snack without the guilt.

The company name was officially selected during a brain-storming session when the 3 founders, Elaine, Sam & Max, who were on vacation in their Colorado cabin. Of course, this cabin is located on Cooper Street and remains a special part of the family today. They were sitting around, eating the cookies and the lightbulb went off. The rest was history!
After years of renting space and scrambling to find ovens, mixers etc, Cooper Street finally decided to build their own small commercial bakery. As our distribution and fan base grew, so did our team! We also launched some other flavors, such as White Chunk Cherry and Michigan Blueberry. At this point we also decided to become an official nut free facility, where we source all our ingredients and supplies from dedicated nut free sources. The company gained distribution in many chains throughout the midwest, including Busch's, Kroger and Sam's Club.
