Better Than Your Mother’s Cookies are not just cookies, they’re an experience. BTYM is a distinctive brand of luxurious custom cookies. We feature some of the world's finest chocolate, butter, and sugar. Each cookie is a small batch and made to order. Our product is fresh, never frozen! We stand on the principles of using the highest quality ingredients to bring our clients something more than just a cookie.  

Better Than Your Mother's Chef/Founder Iman Kawa wanted to do her part to contribute to childhood cancer research and did so by creating a baking challenge on her YouTube Channel.

The cookies instantly became a hit on Instagram.

Iman finally decided to turn cookies into a business. Since then, Better Than Your Mother's cookies have become the go-to dessert for top athletes, musicians, and many other prominent people. Names like Nicky Jam, Cardi B, DJ Khaled, UFC BMF Jorge Masvidal, Faruko, UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones, have all dubbed BTYM their favorite cookies.

At Better Than Your Mother's, we pride ourselves in the way we tailor our cookies to the customer. If there is something very specific you love or that makes you happy, tell us about it!

We'll figure out a way to make it a cookie.


Iman Kawa attended Culinary School at the CIA in Hyde Park, NY. Upon her departure, she went on to cook at New York City’s top fine dining restaurants, some of which were ranked on S. Pellegrino’s “The World’s Top 50” list. By working for the best chefs in New York, Iman was able to hone in on her passion, but above all, appreciate the importance of the “guest experience”.  Iman cooked for names like Jonathan Benno, Daniel Boulud, and Adam Perry Lang. Chef Iman has a Michelin studded resume and has taken what she has learned to bring you an extraordinary box of cookies.
