About Us


My name is Darby Cooper and this is me as a young girl before I ever knew I’d be making a career out of baking delicious treats.  I am now the proud owner of Cookies Direct, a mail order gift service specializing in truly homemade, hand packaged cookies from Maine!  Although the business was established in 1991, I became the new cookie monster in May of 2017.  At that time, I decided to leave my job in the corporate world and pursue something I was passionate about  Yes, I love cookies… but more importantly, I like to make people happy. I truly believe that I am doing exactly that with each batch of cookies I bake.  Let’s face it, who doesn’t smile when they get to eat cookies!  Include a personal message to the gift box and you are sure to add a little sweetness to someone’s day.

If what you’relooking for is a cookie company that makes real homemade cookies by real people, you’ve come to the right place.
