Our Story

Our Story

It was a beautiful Vancouver evening at Jericho beach in the late summer of 2010 when Cheryl wondered out loud to her husband, “What if we started our own cookie company?” After tossing around several other contenders for the company’s name, we settled on “Half Baked” (as in half baked idea!).  Little did we know at the time, how many shortbread cookies we would have tasted, baked and shared with our butter-loving fans all over British Columbia.  Although it hasn’t always been an easy road, we’ve had plenty of fun along the way and made many friends.

Handcrafted in small batches using only the best local and organic ingredients, our shortbread cookies feature locally milled Organic flour and fresh Grade A butter. We now have our very own bakery at 1211 Nanaimo Street, in East Vancouver and we still sell our products at local farmers’ markets and special events in and around the lower mainland. Our cookies are also available in a few local stores where you can find us giving out samples from time to time. It is important to us to be a part of the local food scene, and to connect one-on-one with our customers.  As we continue to grow our business, we look forward to bringing you more seasonal shortbread flavors and desserts to keep you coming back for more.

We want you to feel good about what you eat, which is why every ingredient that goes into what we make has been carefully considered. One of our main goals is to provide treats that are just sweet enough with a hint of salt.

Our company is extremely customer driven.  As a small local business, we wouldn’t exist otherwise! We would love to hear from you.  Write us about cookies, or really, anything.
