The ladies who own Mary's Mountain Cookies in downtown Missoula did NOT pay me to spread the word about their incredible new business, I'm telling you because I like you and feel that you need pure greatness in your mouth.

Mary's Mountain Cookies opened their shop between The Wilma and El Caz on Higgins just last week, and you can smell their yummy goods long before you even hit that block. The one thing that everyone is raving about? Edible cookie dough.

The spacious and welcoming cookie store features grab and go cups of edible cookie dough, big, flavorful cookies, brownies and even ice cream. Mary's is sure to become one of those must visit places when you have friends and family in town, and it's the perfect stop for a treat after you enjoy dinner downtown.

Here are some photos from my experience, check out the shop for yourself at 101 Higgins.
