10-Year-Old N.J. Boy Cooks Up A Cookie Empire

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - A young local baker is receiving national attention for his treats.

CBS2's Alex Denis paid a visit to the 10-year-old in Englewood, N.J. to find out more about it.

The boy, known as Mr. Cory, is breaking the mold with his delicious cookie recipes.

His company started with a lemonade stand and a very specific mission: To raise money to buy his mother a car.

"It was in 2009 so I was like 5 or 6," he said.

The determined entrepreneur bought the car after his dedication caught the eye of generous supporters.

Since then Cory's mother Lisa has helped grow the street-corner business into a full blown operation.

Now, Cory focuses on filling orders and saving for college while perfecting his recipes along the way, but he won't give away his secret.

"I can't tell you. It's G-14 classified information," he said.

He wouldn't crack, but did offer some other tips.

"We need to put them with 3 fingers so they don't spread and kiss," Mr. Cory said.

And too much baking soda and baking powder packs an unwanted punch.

"It may cause the cookie to overflow and explode," he explained.

For more information about Mr. Cory's cookies are preservative free so they aren't shipped. For the location of his next pop-up shop click here.
