Maya's Cookies Black History Collection 2023

An ode to the arts, Maya's Cookies brings you this year's Black History Collection to honor the contributions of the countless Black women breaking barriers in the literary arts, world of dance, music industry, and beyond.

A note from CEO & Founder, Maya Madsen:

“This year's collection is an ode to the arts and my way of honoring the contributions of countless Black women breaking barriers in the literary arts, world of dance, music industry and beyond. 

Each cookie tells the stories of remarkable change makers and features ingredients from fellow Black-owned, woman-owned small businesses that I love. From our friends at Trade Street Jam Co., making vegan, low-sugar jams with unexpected flavors to Kanda Chocolates, whose owner is providing jobs by sourcing straight from Ghana, the collection is a celebration of Black, female excellence - past and present.”

The Chart-Topper

Inspired by the Godmother of Soul, the Chart-Topper is a tribute to Ms.Patti Labelle's famous pies and cobblers. This cobbler-inspired cookie turns up the volume with a harmony of Smoked Peach Jam, real peach pieces, and a cinnamon brown sugar crumble.

The Best Seller

The Vanishing Half tells the tale of twin sisters, inseparable as children, who ultimately choose to live in two very different worlds, one black, and one white. Taking inspiration from the novel's front cover design as well as the duality of the main characters, The Best Seller marbles together 3 unique flavors: Red Velvet, Brown Sugar Chocolate Chunk, and Salted Caramel Fudge.

The Best Seller features Vegan Dark Chocolate from Kanda Chocolates, a Black-owned, woman-owned company sourcing straight from Ghana.
