The Cookie Jar DC
Lindsay Larner, founder and CEO of The Cookie Jar DC, grew up in St. Louis and moved to DC in 2009 after graduating from the University of Pennsylvania. She’s worked in the nonprofit and tech startup worlds focused on marketing and communications, during which time she also received an MBA and Master of Jewish Education. She’s always defined herself as someone who is creative and likes to manage innovative projects.
Lindsay founded The Cookie Jar DC in February 2016 by mistake when she was playing around in the kitchen and wound up with some delicious edible cookie dough recipes. Recognizing that she needed a commercial production space in order to sell the dough, she began producing out of Union Kitchen and selling to consumers and retailers.
The Cookie Jar DC makes it easy, fun and safe for everyone to eat cookie dough. If you’ve ever tried to make cookies, but only half the bowl of dough makes it into the oven (with the other half making it into your mouth)…and all along you hear your mom’s voice in the back of your head saying “Don’t eat that, it has raw eggs in it, you’re going to get sick!”…then you know what we mean.
The cookie dough comes in a variety of flavors in jars, bites, and shots that are fun, unique and delicious.
