Our Cookies

Otterbein’s has been making cookies since 1881. We’ve added a few new flavors since then, but we keep things simple. We use just a few high-quality ingredients in each cookie: no fillers, no artificial flavors, no preservatives. They’re made with natural ingredients and stay fresh for weeks—but once you taste them, they won’t last long. ORDER YOUR FAVORITES OR TRY ALL FIVE —available in attractive gift tins. We ship anywhere!

Sugar Cookies

The cookie that started it all. The original Otterbein’s cookie has been a holiday tradition in the Baltimore area for more than a century. Impossibly thin and delicate, crisp like only the freshest cookies can be, and just sweet enough, this is the real deal. Try them with a cup of hot coffee on a winter day.


Flour, sugar, margarine, eggs, salt, baker’s ammonia.

Chocolate Chip

Our most popular cookie! This is a light, crispy, almost lacy version of the traditional chocolate chip cookie. We’re careful not to make the dough too sweet, so the chocolate flavor shines through. We use high-quality Guittard chocolate chips, made with fair-trade, sustainably produced single-origin chocolate. Try them once and you’ll never go back to the corporate stuff.


Semisweet chocolate (sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter) with added lecithin emulsifier and pure vanilla, flour, sugar, brown sugar, butter, margarine, eggs, salt, baking soda, vanilla.

Flour, brown sugar, margarine, eggs, molasses, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, salt.

Oatmeal Raisin

Everyone loves our thin, crunchy oatmeal raisin cookies. The comforting warmth of cinnamon meets the sweetness of raisins in a taste that will take you back to Grandma’s kitchen. Delicious with coffee—or a tall, cold glass of milk.


Raisins, margarine, flour, brown sugar, oats, sugar, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla, salt, baking soda.

Best Cookies Ever!!!

“I discovered your cookies at my local Shop Rite this year, and I think they are the best cookies in the world! My favorite are the Sugar and Chocolate Chip. They are actually better than homemade. I was afraid they were a one time thing on the shelf but I am so happy to see they are every week. I checked out your website and saw all the other comments, so I guess I’m not the only one who loves them so much. Keep baking and I’ll keep buying!!!!”

Thank you,
