How does this whole process work?

Let me break it down for you. My goal is to get cookies to the address of your choice as fresh as possible. So, for starters, I don't prepare anything until an order is placed. Secondly, I don't bake orders unless it's a day I can ship them where they will arrive without sitting in a warehouse. That means, for the most part, orders ship on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. 

How long will the cookies last?

All Mamalou Bakeshop Cookies are baked fresh without any added preservatives. They will be fresh upon arrival. If you haven't eaten all of your cookies within 3 days of receiving them (which, in our experience rarely happens) we suggest you freeze them to enjoy on a later date. Frozen cookies can be thawed at room temperate (takes about an hour), in the fridge (overnight), in the toaster oven (300 F for about 5 minutes), on or in the microwave (at 30 second intervals). 

Are Mamalou Bakeshop Cookies individually wrapped?

Yes! Our cookies are wrapped and heat sealed in packaging made from a plant based material.


When will the cookies arrive?

Mamalou Bakeshop Cookies is a made to order service. That means that cookies are not baked until they are ordered. Baking and shipping is generally done Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday as those are the best days to ship so that cookies don't sit around in a mailing warehouse.

Here's a mailing map to give you a general sense of how long this whole waiting game takes. Trust me, it's worth it.

That black arrow is me! That's where I'll be baking and shipping my awesome fresh baked cookies. I hope this map gives you a sense of how long it will take for that box of cookie love to arrive at the designated doorstep. 

Zone 1-3: Delivery in 1-2 business days after shipping

Zone 4-7: Delivery in 2-3 business days after shipping

Zone 8: Delivery in 3-4 business days after shipping

Zone 9 (US Territories): Delivery in 4 business days after shipping

Remember, I don't have cookies ready to ship. No one wants a pre-baked, sitting on the shelf cookie, right? I thought so.
