They make large, gourmet, gooey cookies and believe it's "what's on the inside that counts."  That's why each of their cookies have different fillings inside!

"You won’t find a thicker, softer, more gooey or flavorful cookie than the ones from Dirty Dough. The “Dirty” refers to all of the fillings, mix-ins and layers that go into our special cookie process." [Dirty Dough]


This should be fun - two cookie shops opening soon, which one will you try first?!

Taking a look at their menu, they have single cookies, variety packs, and you can get parties catered with Dirty Dough.  YUM!
