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.
As the head of a woman-owned business
Elaine realized early on that her personality and drive would be an integral part of growing a cookie business in such a competitive marketplace. Loading up the family car every day and heading out to conduct product demonstrations has become a way of life. Perseverance and determination have paid off as our little cookie company has grown from a local & regional bakery into a national supplier of delicious, better-for-you cookies and snacks. Imbued with that same hard work ethic and indominable spirit, sons Max and Sam also joined the business early on to make this a true family enterprise. With the credo that “A family that works together, wins together,” the entire Surnow clan is now sharing the family recipe (and the smiles!) one delectable cookie at a time.
