Mary Johns began Mary’s Mountain Cookies over 25 years ago after working as the head cook at the Cherokee Park Dude Ranch in northern Colorado. Mary developed her cookie baking skills at the ranch and became famous for her Mountain Style Cookies. Guests loved the cookies so much that they would ask them to be shipped to their homes so they could enjoy them all year long. The demand grew and the next thing you know…..Mary’s Mountain Cookies, was formed.
Today, Mary has her test kitchen at the Front Range Village location, this is known as the original Fort Collins Cookie Store. You can see Mary there sometimes helping customers or testing new recipes.
All the stores are licensed by Mary’s Mountain Cookies and they adhere to strict guidelines to produce quality cookies, excellent customer service with a local, independent feel.
A minimum number of new stores are considered each year. Only hard working individuals with a strong passion for people, baking, and cookies are considered for a store license.

Yes, we have a variety of gluten free cookie flavors. Our gluten free cookies are made with delicious, healthy and very expensive pure blanched almond flour. We do not claim to be a 100% gluten free kitchen. There may be a trace of wheat flour somewhere floating around the store. We are very careful to keep these ingredients from touching each other, it is safest for us to say there may be a trace of wheat.
We do not use eggs in our edible cookie dough. We have a secret ingredient that has no calories and makes our Edible Cookie Dough amazing!
