Aunt Gussie's Cookies We bake the best cookies & crackers using only premium, simple ingredients. Travel in time from Aunt Gussie's humble beginnings as a start-up
company in a home kitchen to the present, a large state-of-the-art facility.

Back in 1980, Marilyn Caine founded the company under the name Marilyn Specialties.

She would bake cookies in her home kitchen every night, and in the morning take the bus to NYC to deliver her delicious cookies to specialty Mom & Pop stores in the city; then 3 months into her venture, Macy's gave her a big order and that's how her cookie shop started to grow. Although the company has always been baking specialty cookies (oversize decorative cookies back then), Marilyn always had

Best Snacks For Kids With Food Allergies By Jenny Rasmussen | December 6th, 2013When it comes to food, I was never a label-reader.

35 years ago Marilyn Caine started a cookie company out of her own kitchen using her sister-in-law's (Aunt Gussie's) cookie recipes. It is amazing how much the company has grown since then! If it wasn't for Marilyn's determination and dedication we wouldn't be the company we are today! #ThrowbackThursday

Our Story

“Mom used to say she was going to start a business making these cookies,” her son David remembers. “My brothers and I used to laugh at her and say she was never going to do that.” ​ Marilyn’s husband, Phil, encouraged her to start the cookie business because he got sick and worried that Marilyn would need a form of income for when he was no longer around. Phil was Marilyn’s biggest supporter in the company’s beginning stages.

Marilyn called the company “Aunt Gussie’s” because the first product on the market was made by Phil’s Aunt Gussie. This cookie was called Mandelbrot. The name was later changed to biscotti, and finally biscuits.

“Mom used to sell magazines door to door and she was also an executive assistant at the Shortline Bus Company,” David recalled. “At the time she started the business, mom worked for a furrier that she worked for before she was married. So, she was doing the business and working for the furrier. She was making the product and doing sales I guess at night and on weekends from the house. Mom started the business from our house.”

Marilyn received little support from anyone other than her husband. Phil gave Marilyn business advice and financial support. “The extended family thought it was a bit of a joke and that it was a hobby,” David said.
