About Otterbein's Cookies

A family of German immigrants would come to Baltimore, Maryland and start a little bakery near Fort McHenry (Oh say, can you see!), where Adam Otterbein would create a crispy, buttery sugar cookie that an entire city would fall in love with. For Otterbein's Cookies, it's simple baking. simple pleasures. And they wouldn’t want it any other way.
