About us

Pinckney Cookie Café originated in 2009 from one man’s creativity and passion, bolstered by the unrelenting enthusiasm and encouragement of friends, family and collaborators.

During his youth in Great Neck, New York, Michael Pinckney discovered the magic and power of baking fresh cookies. While adulthood led him through several career stages (finance, sales, consulting, technology and management), his pursuit of the perfect chocolate chip cookie remained constant, and his personal recipes kept evolving.

Michael’s commitment to the best ingredients was undeterred. Even parenthood didn’t keep him from baking; it ensured a captive audience of discriminating taste testers for new flavor combinations.

The marketplace played its part as well. “It's really tough to find a truly satisfying, top-notch cookie, and near impossible at 11 p.m., even in most cities,” Michael explains. As you’ve seen on this site, his high standards include all natural ingredients, zero preservatives and gourmet chocolates. Be sure to try his favorite cookie (well, so far, anyway) Bing Bling!.

Through Pinckney Cookie Café, all fans of Michael’s uniquely delicious cookies can keep cookie fulfillment right at hand. Did we mention that the cookies have no preservatives and keep best in the refrigerator? They also freeze beautifully and thaw quickly, with all their flavor and texture intact.


Based in Kirkland, WA just outside of Seattle, Pinckney Cookie Cafe is a community oriented and environmentally conscious company. We're passionate about building the type of company that our children would be excited to work for and our neighbors are delighted to have next door. We source all locally available ingredients locally, and consider the environment in everything we do. This includes composting, recycling, using paper or biodegradable peanuts, and purchasing packaging that uses recycled paper.


We want to hear from you! You're the reason we exist, and the best part of the cookie business is sharing the cookie love with you.

Better Than Home Baked!

Pinckney Cookie Cafe uses the same recipes and premium wholesome ingredients that the founder used baking at home for family and friends over the years. These include:

  • Semi-sweet and bittersweet chocolate from storied Belgian chocolatier Barry Callebaut
  • Meadowbrook butter from the Larsen's Creamery in Portland, OR
  • Pure brown sugar and evaporated cane juice sugar
  • Local eggs from Stiebrs Farms in Yelm, WA
  • Unsweetened finely shredded coconut
  • Nielsen Massey vanilla

Our traditional cookies use flour from Shepherd's Grain, a local farming cooperative that uses sustainable farming methods.

Our Miracle Cookies use a mix of ten different ingredients to substitute for wheat, unrefined coconut oil and applesauce to substitute for butter, and ground flaxseed and water to substitute for eggs.
