Mom has been a hobbyist baker since she was old enough to be trusted to turn on the oven, and after the umpteenth person told her - through a mouthful of buttery crumbs - that she was the best baker they'd ever known, and she could, quote, "sell these cookies for real money!" she took everyone's advice and began baking professionally.
None of this is surprising, however, as Mom comes from a long line of bakers and entrepreneurs. Her great-grandmother was called "Sugar" - not her real name, but everyone whether a casual acquaintance of a lifelong friend knew her as that - her grandmother routinely produced hundreds of pies and cakes for church bake sales out of her tiny kitchen, her grandfather owned a camera store, and her sister is a fellow small business owner in San Diego who runs a literary agency.
"Just Like Mom makes is as much a business name as it is a mission statement, to Mom. She doesn't use ingredients in her cookies to feed your family which she wouldn't feed her own family, and many of her recipes are riffs on desserts she's made her own family for years - classic desserts reinterpreted as cookies. Moreover, Mom isn't just selling flavor and wholesome ingredients, she's selling nostalgia, she's selling the memory of baking cookies on a Sunday afternoon with your mother - or the cookies you wish you had!
Mom takes the common cookie and elevates it with ingredients that are better for you, so they naturally taste better. Ingredients like organic butter and sugar, high-quality King Arthur Flour, homemade caramel and nut butters, all-natural freeze-dried fruit, gourmet citrus oils, Lindt chocolate, and Nielsen-Massey vanilla bean caviar go into every cookie. And the hearts in Mom's logo aren't an accident - love is the most important ingredient. The same love that goes into anything your Mom makes. Let Mom make you something special!
Just like your mom makes - or always you wished she did - fresh-baked cookies with only the finest gourmet ingredients.
