Hi there!

That’s what happens after every bite of our cookies.

My Story

It all started during Christmas 2020. My mom is a cancer survivor, but chemotherapy took its toll, resulting in her body no longer being able to process gluten or rice. Do you know how difficult it is to find a decent tasting dessert without gluten or rice flour in it? 

Dang near impossible!

So I set out on a mission to make a cookie that was allergy friendly, but also tasted delicious and was pretty to look at. I developed the gluten free recipe that I still use today that December and fell in love with the art of baking and decorating cookies at the same time.


A few months later, I started making more cookies and learning about the process, and BAM, here we are! Cookies By Kelsey, LLC went from a far off dream to a present-day reality, all thanks to customers like you! Thank you for supporting my crazy ambitions!

The Face Behind the Cookie

Hi, I'm Kelsey!

I grew up west of Indianapolis and went to Purdue University where I studied Health Sciences and Biology. I am a Forensic Scientist at the state level by day and a cookier by night. I am very grateful to have two careers that are overwhelmingly rewarding. I spend my free time hanging out with my Beagle and Golden Retriever, tending to my plants, or doing anything outdoors - but give me some cookies, a piping bag, and a true crime podcast, and I will be busy for days at a time! I am so thankful to have discovered this creative outlet and pray that through these delicious desserts, I can bring joy to many!

Frequently Asked Questions

Home: FAQ

Are the cookies individually wrapped?

They certainly can be! If you need your cookies to be wrapped individually, I can heat seal them in individual cellophane bags at a small extra cost. This allows the cookies to stay soft and delicious for at least two weeks out on the countertop. If you need to keep them longer, send me a message and I can explain how to freeze them!

Do you offer gluten free items?

Absolutely! I am all about accommodating for allergies. My typical cookie does contain gluten but is nut and dairy-free. If you would prefer gluten free cookies, just let me know and I will happily make those cookies special for you!

Do you make vegan cookies?

No. My cookies contain eggs and my icing contains meringue powder, which is made from egg whites.

How much do your cookies cost?

Cookie pricing starts at $45 per dozen with a two dozen order minimum and increases from there depending on the number of shapes/colors/textures, how much lettering, and how intricate you are wanting your custom cookies to be. For more details, contact me and I will discuss specific pricing with you!

How early should I place my order?

Honestly, as early as possible! We fill up fast. Typically my calendar books full about two months in advance. Around the big holiday seasons and graduation time, it can be even earlier. The sooner, the better to guarantee your spot!

How do I request an order? 

Sorry, but I am not accepting orders at this time. Please check back for updates soon!
