Frequently Asked Questions
Where is Unconventional Cookies located?
Heart of beautiful Bismarck, North Dakota! We also service and consider surrounding cities, Mandan and Lincoln, ND as "local" to us.
We are now doing box pick-up days at Nodakian Studios: 2107 E Rosser Ave. Bismarck, ND 58501. Check the calendar for upcoming dates!
Can Unconventional Cookies ship cookies and cookie by products??
NOPE! Sorry little one. Sad face.
Unfortunately Unco is not run out of a commercial kitchen so we can only do in-person sales at this time.
Although, you the customer can send them wherever the heck you want after the cookies pass from my hands to yours!!!!
OR you can buy me a bakery.
Those are my very limited shipping options. Oh and if you win a free box in a giveaway or something. I can ship free stuff... and stickers. Just no cookies. booooooooo 😿

Can you make my cookies gluten free?
It's been done, attempted, etc. - But, umm, not great! We're keen to find a recipe and are workin' away in the test kitchen and stuff. MWAH
What ingredients do you use?
My cookies are your typical, old-fashioned sugar cookies.
Royal icing ingredients:
and various food coloring
What is the deal and how can I sign up for the subscription boxes?
Essentially it is a cookie of the month club! Instead of wine or makeup samples or whatever the typical "of-the-month" clubs are.
Each month has a theme and they are super fun!!! When you sign up you are reserving your next month's box. So if you sign up in September your first box will be the October box. Does that make sense??????????? If not just message me! Visit the
monthly subscription boxes page for more info.
How can I sign up????
GLAD YOU ASKED!! Visit the
subscription box plans page to pick your plan!
What's the deal with marketing collabs and donations?? (cue jerry seinfeld)
We here at UNCO proudly and lovingly support non-profit groups. So, if you are interested in collaborating, you can drop us a line (and if you're good at your job - you can find our email address on our site to contact us - HA!)
We are suuuper interested in colloborating with brands/businesses, so on - whether it's limited or long term partnership. Regarding that, when we do work with businesses, we require payment for services.
Bakers are artists and artists deserve payment for work. Boom!
Can I buy a gift certificate?
We currently don't have physical gift certificates, but if you would like to gift a box or subscription, just contact me and we will get it all worked out!
How long are they fresh? Can I freeze some of my cookies?
YES!!! They freeze really well and from all of my super scientific research (googling and personal taste testing) they are great at room temp for 2 weeks if kept sealed. They will start to dry out if left out of the freezer for any longer than that. They freeze well for up to 6 months. I haven't experimented with longer than that and my BFF google suggests that as the longest you should keep them too.
My suggestion for freezing is to keep them in their lil bags that I fresh-pack them in, and then put them in a freezer bag or tupperware thingy. I always then wrap my tupperware in saran wrap and tin foil... it's probably overkill but a wasted cookie is a tragic thing...
