    If you actually wish to start a legal "food" business in the USA you will need a business license and certification from the Board of Health. Most US States will also require the Board of Health to periodically inspect the cooking facility and most home kitchens will not pass inspection. You will also need liability insurance, in case the cookies make someone ill. However, you could probably start some type of blog and take orders for the cookies and barring anyone getting sick, you probably won't get caught. You'd be far safer trying to sell the cookies through a market or restaurant or food shop or even to your neighbors than doing it on line.

    You need to ask the food licensing authorities in your area. Contact your local Board of Health for information. Most jurisdictions require that food being sold to the public must be prepared in a BoH inspected and certified kitchen, not in a regular home kitchen.
