Our Story

We began on September 19, 1939 as a neighborhood bakery opened in New Albany, Indiana. We started making a small butter cookie that was known as the “Little Flower Butter Wafer”. It had an icing center and was so soft, it melted in your mouth. Seventy years later this cookie is still made and produced by the same family. These cookies are now known as “Rookie’s Cookies”, named after the original bakery.
The recipe is kept secret and controlled by the family.
