Mariposa Cookie Company

Our Story


Mariposa Cookie Company is located in the historic gold rush town of Mariposa, set in the foothills of the Sierra Mountains just outside of Yosemite National Park. We are a home based “Cottage Food” small business, permitted by the County as a Class B, California Food Operation. Owner/Baker Terry McDermott is part of “Made In Mariposa” and registered with the Mariposa Chamber of Commerce.

My husband and I fell in love with the charming little town of Mariposa and moved here in 2016. It has been a lifelong dream to own a small business, and people enjoy my baking so I took the leap and started my little business. We do not have a store front, but you can find us on Facebook and we bake “fresh to order”!

Mariposa Cookie Company can also be found at the Mariposa Certified Farmers Market every Wednesday evening at 5PM to 6:30PM, May through October. I have a booth at local events like the CASA Street Fair & the Art & Wine Festival.

Three local businesses have my baked goods at their establishments: “CostaLivos Olive Oil” store carries my Italian Almond Biscotti and occasionally serves my baked goods in their charming little restaurant, “Charles Street Dinner House” serves my cookies in the form of Ice Cream Sandwiches for dessert, and a very popular local caterer “BB’s Catering” has used my baked goods at their events as well.

Mariposa Cookie Company has a large variety of Old Fashioned Cookies, Sandwich Cookies filled with delicious flavors of buttercream, Fruit Pies of all sizes the most popular being the Mini Pie.

The Mini Pies are a perfect little dessert or snack, 3 bites and its gone which keeps them coming back for more! I also have 3 flavors of Italian Biscotti: Almond with chocolate drizzle, Lemon with lemon drizzle, and Anise with a vanilla drizzle and sprinkles, which is an old fashioned favorite. I have recently expanded the menu to include muffins and mini cupcakes.

Give us a call at 209-742-4399 or check us out on Facebook or send a message to Mariposa Cookie Company and we will be glad to bake you a special treat FRESH to order!
