Since 1977, the cookie craftsmen at Great American Cookies have shared edible sentiments via freshly baked cookies, brownies, and hand-decorated cookie cakes. The founding bakers opened their first shop in Atlanta with one initial product: a chocolate-chip cookie crafted from a generations-old recipe. Since then, their lineup has expanded to include oatmeal walnut, double fudge, snickerdoodle, and other cookie renditions. And they've also added rich brownies that range in flavor from Reese’s Peanut Butter cup and strawberry cheesecake to red-velvet brownies, german chocolate brownies, and traditional fudge. The biggest feature, though, is the shop's signature 16-inch round cookie cake, a hand-frosted mega-treat that can feed 8–16 people or approximately 200 industrious tree elves.
The shop’s website caters to sweet requests with an online store full of preconceived designs searchable by occasion, recipient gender, and theme, including birthdays, Easter, and Saint Patrick's Day. If you'd like, the bakers can handle specific decoration orders and create unique designs to celebrate special events, such as baby’s first hedge fund.:m]]
