The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but to make it that far you have to be disguised as baked goods. Today's Groupon tickles hearts with warmth and cookies: for $5, you get $11 worth of fresh oven-baked treats at Cookie Cutter Bakery.
Located inside South Dakota Achieve, this charming purveyor of oven yum spreads its sweetness throughout patrons' torsos from belly and spleen to compassionate heart pump. In addition to making morning meetings bearable with muffins ($0.55 for regular sized), Cookie Cutter provides meaningful employment to people with disabilities, and its proceeds support the services of South Dakota Achieve’s mission to help people with disabilities achieve their dreams, such as living independently, making new friends, or communicating. Friendly and professional, the cookie makers churn out the sweet old-fashioned cookie discs in flavors such as peanut butter, oatmeal chocolate chip, gingersnap, scotchies, M&M, and more ($4.29–$4.49/dozen). If you prefer baked goods from Brobdingnag instead of Lilliput, you can get a 12" cookie cake decorated to order ($13.99), or avoid the selfish act of solo cupcake eating with a giant cupcake cake that serves 16–20 people ($14.99).
Cookie Cutter Bakery celebrates Hump Day and appeases Odin the All-Father by offering both cake donuts (glazed or frosted, $0.60 each) and raised donuts (glazed, frosted, or filled, $8.40 for a dozen) in-store every Wednesday. Friday brings with it caramel rolls and frosted cinnamon rolls ($1.25 each or $15 for a dozen), freshly swirled and plumped with a love generally reserved for handsome building managers. Both once-a-week treats are available for pre-order any day of the week. Call ahead to ensure that Cookie Cutter Bakery’s friendly gingerbread men and women have the goods you want, or just drop in on a whim to ogle the offerings until someone calls the police.
