Our Story

(as best we can remember)




As a kid growing up in Syracuse, New York, Tina Corso, from a very young age, was an entrepreneur at heart. She painted t-shirts and made her own jewelry, and of course, baked and decorated cookies, to sell to family and friends!

From humble beginnings, working out of her home kitchen,  at the age of 25, Tina pursued her child­hood passion and started her own cookie company. Customers were initially attracted to the decorating, but after tasting them, they told their friends about these delicious treats.


It didn’t take long for Tina’s cookies to become a “must have” for parties and special events. And by 2001 she moved from her home kitchen to her first commercial bakery to keep up with demand.  Working 7 days a week, Tina did her best to keep up with the orders for her cookies, which grew by the day.

By 2006 word had spread beyond Syracuse about Corso’s Cookies. Soon both national retailers and online gift companies would start to call to inquire about selling Corso’s Cookies to their customers, and the company would once again move into a much larger manufacturing facility.

Today, Corso’s Cookies is America’s Favorite Decorated Cookie Company, with a passionate team of bakers, decorators and packagers, all dedicated to producing cookies, you too, will be proud to serve your friends and family.
