About Us!

The Cookie People have been treating Raleigh to gourmet home made cookies for six years now. Owners Darrin and April Morey have always had a strong work ethic and desire to work for themselves. Using their culinary creativity and love of 'over the top' food experiences, they created their cookie business together.

The cookie magic is created by using the finest quality ingredients, including some from right here in North Carolina (for example, the honey in the oatmeal golden raisin cookies is locally made!). Some things you will NOT find in these oversized grandma-style cookies: additives or preservatives. These cookies are nothing like store-bought; they're soft and chewy, unlike the dry and crumbly cookies you get in any old store. Currently cookie monsters can choose from fifteen scrumptious flavors that include a mix of classics such as chocolate chip and sugar or pumpkin-cranberry-walnut-chocolate chip, as well as unique flavors like spicy Mexican hot chocolate and root beer float.

The Cookie People can be found year round at the State farmers market in Raleigh, as well as two other seasonal farmers markets and special events. They are also happy to do cookie catering, fundraising, and custom mail orders. Seeing the child-like smile that comes from biting into these cookies and hearing customers exclaim things like "this is the best cookie I've ever had in my life!" is what inspires this cookie baking team to keep going. They love creating something so delicious that it makes people happy and want to come back for more. Head on out to a farmers market near you and experience the best cookies you've ever had!

Some of our flavors!

Chocolate Chip

A classic cookie made with real butter, white and brown sugars, and tons of of high quality chocolate chips. We don't skimp on the chips!

Triple Chocolate

Especially for chocolate lovers. Triple chocolate means lots of melted chocolate, very little flour, Hershey's cocoa powder, and plenty of chocolate chips, making this cookie extremely rich. Crackly top and soft in the middle - chocolate heaven!

German Chocolate

This is a German chocolate based cookie, with tons of caramely coconut and whole pecans. No need to travel to Germany for an authentic German Chocolate cookie!


A summer inspired cookie, made with lemonade concentrate, fresh lemon juice, and pure lemon extract. The flavor of lemonade is all throughout this soft pound cake-like cookie and it is delicious! Yummy lemon icing and yellow sparkly sprinkles decorate the top.

Mexican Hot Chocolate

This is one of our most unique cookies for people who like a little spicy heat. This cookie is flavored with chocolate cocoa powder and rolled in a mixture of cinnamon, chili powder and cayenne pepper - a delicious flavor combination. We dare you to try it!

Molasses Crinkle

This recipe is from April's grandmother Alice, of Pinehurst, NC. A tried and true cookie that is hard to find these days. Made with brown sugar, molasses, and an incredible mix of spices including cinnamon, ginger and cloves. These cookies are chewy, dense and old-fashionably good.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip

So many people requested this cookie we just had to bake it for you! Oatmeal chocolate chip is a dense chewy cookie filled with oats and our special twist: white AND dark chocolate chips. A sprinkle of sea salt on top before it is baked really makes your taste buds pop!

Oatmeal Golden Raisin

These cookies are like a bowl of oatmeal to go. We use old fashioned rolled oats for a more dense cookie, butter and brown sugar, Madagascar vanilla, a touch of kosher salt, and our special twist - locally produced honey and plump golden raisins.

Peanut Butter

Lots of peanut butter go in to these cookies, and of course they have the essential fork criss crosses on top.

Peanut Butter Cup

This is our awesome flavor created for all you peanut butter & chocolate lovers out there. You are going to love this! A chewy chocolate cookie stuffed with big chunks of peanut butter cups, swirled with more peanut butter and a whole peanut butter cup sunk right in the middle. Heaven!

White Chocolate Macadamia

This rich, chewy cookie is one that customers demanded year after year. However, we didn't want to add it to the line up until it was perfect (and until bulk macadamias came down in price!). In every bite you will enjoy the contrast of crunchy, salty macadamia nuts and smooth, creamy white chocolate chips. Cookie paradise!

Root Beer Float

The Cookie People love root beer so why not a root beer cookie? This is a soft, chewy cookie. Root beer extract is in the cookie and in the icing on the top. One bite and you will swear you are sipping on a creamy root beer float.


You may remember these from when you were a kid - a crinkly topped sugar cookie rolled in cinnamon-sugar. Great with coffee or tea.


A good old fashioned cookie, simple but heavenly. Choose plain sugar cookies or sugar cookies decorated with white icing and rainbow sprinkles. Great for kids of all ages.
