For too long, cookies have been relegated to a supportive capacity, holding together ice-cream sandwiches or giving their lives to make milk chunkier. Give cookies a well-deserved starring role with today's deal: for $14, you get a 16" customizable cookie cake at Great American Cookies. This Groupon is good at its two Mall of Louisiana stores and the Cortana Mall location.
For more than 30 years, Great American Cookies has been sharing a generations-old family chocolate chip cookie recipe with the crumb-hungry masses. Each 16" round cookie cake serves 8–16 people and is baked fresh before being hand decorated by a talented cookie artist to match any holiday or special occasion, with a design made of rich, creamy frosting. Garner inspiration from the more than 30 categories of cookie cake designs posted on the company's website, or have an original designer dessert crafted to your specifications, ready to make a dessert-table appearance at a themed event, or to be framed and admired alongside your cherished Jacques-Louis David portrait of a napoleon crossing the alps.
The days of softening sticks of salted or unsalted butter, inadvertently eating raw egg, and burning your cookie grabbers grabbing hot cookies off pans, plates, and electrified cookie jars have gone into that hard, stale past where philosophers sleep. Sample the evolution of treat making with a fresh baked cookie cake acquired from Great American Cookies.
Great American Cookies
Armed with just a single, generations-old cookie recipe, Great American Cookies opened its first store in 1977, and the rest is history. Today, the franchise boasts locations in malls across the country and nabbed a coveted spot on Entrepreneur magazine’s 2012 list of Top 500 Franchises in the baked-goods category. The shop’s reputation grew, and so did its menu as chefs churned out a mouthwatering roster of gourmet-cookie recipes, each created and carefully tested in Atlanta. The tempting options now include snickerdoodle, peanut butter with M&M’s, and chewy pecan supreme, as well as freshly baked fudge and cheesecake brownies and cookie sandwiches stuffed with frosting. The real showstoppers, however, are the giant chocolate-chip cookie cakes, which can be customized with sweet, celebratory messages or shopping lists penned in colorful icing.
