About Us   

Gladder's Gourmet, Inc., has been in the business of manufacturing gourmet cookie dough for 25 years, and is open for business Monday thru Friday, 8:00am - 5:00pm.

It all started when founder, John Glader, making fresh baked cookies at his Ice Creamery in Austin, Texas, was asked if he sold bulk cookie dough. John was not one to let opportunity pass him by...he said, "Yes." With that, John continued with determination to create a preportioned cookie dough of consistent quality. In time he developed the patented process by which we manufacture our recipes today.

This process provides the most uniform, efficient, and compact packaging available on the market today.  A proprietary aging process allows for the proper blending of ingredients, enhancing the golden appearance and enriching the exceptional flavor and texture of our products. You get the wholesome quality of goodness in every bite.

Gladder's Gourmet has expanded product lines to service the retail, foodservice, and fundraiser industries. Gladder's Gourmet is a dynamic company, constantly evolving to meet the demands of a changing industry through new and innovative products such as All Natural, 0g Trans Fat , Gluten Free, and Sugar Free alternatives available by special order quanitities.
