Cookies & Dreams

Cookies that are not only delicious… but are beautiful took look at.  Came in gorgeous packaging, which made the shipment that much sweeter! Love some of the cookies flavors…PuppyChow, Poppin’ Champagne, and Chocolate Wasted, to name a few.

Cookies & Dreams / 2022 Valentine's Day Gift Ideas and Buying Guide Page: Sweets and Treats

“Our mission is simple.
Make really, really, really good cookies.
We offer freshly baked cookies in classic & unique flavors!
According to Fundera, the United States has 12.3 million women-owned businesses. That figure is one that Stephanie Sellers — proud owner of Cookies & Dreams — wants to see grow, as she is no stranger to hard work and loves a good lady boss. Her story starts in 1994, when she first started baking with her long time baby-sitter (Mimi). Several local 4-H competitions at the county fair later, and after taking the traditional, college route, Stephanie took her very first entry level job at a bank, just in time for the financial crisis, a mere three weeks later. She created her first business, but with life’s overwhelm, ended up selling it and entering the financial sector.

It was at the sight of a bright red Kitchenaid mixer that fire was reignited, at which time she opened a bakery and full-blown restaurant/brewery/bar. Life and business was stellar, until…

Until record-breaking flooding that spring, that wiped out businesses left and right, her business included.

Motivated by the fear of losing everything once again, she racked my brain to think of a solution to get us through the next Midwest winter. The restaurant’s cookies were always the stand-out, so she went all in on her something-sweet, and Cookies & Dreams was born.

Today, Stephanie has three storefront locations in Iowa, with four more on the way — this time in the Chicago-area. She ships her cookies nationwide and has experienced more success than she could have hoped for.”
