Decorated cookies can express all kinds of sentiments, from hearts that say "I love you" to Christmas trees that say "I buried your car keys in the forest." Send someone a message to chew on with today's Groupon to Great American Cookies. This Groupon is valid at the Oakwood Mall location in Enid and the Sooner Fashion Mall location in Norman.
Great American Cookies' sugary delectables have lifted the spirits of mall shoppers and fortified dessert-deprived food courts for more than 30 years. Icing artists wield a full spectrum of frosting hues to customize cookie cakes with borders, holiday artwork, or a birthday message that makes up for last year's barely edible diamond ring. Cakes come in various shapes and sizes—a 12-inch, single-layer round cake ($24.99) serves 8–10 people, whereas an 8-inch heart-shaped version ($16.99) feeds one to four—to fill in as a viable substitute for traditional group-dessert options such as regular cake or regular cake with sprinkles. Sweet shoppers can also scope regulation-size cookies ($1.79 each; $8.95 for a half-dozen; $16.99 for a dozen) that come in assorted incarnations, including chewy chocolate supreme and snickerdoodle. German-chocolate brownies ($2.49 each) tempt chocoholics, and cheesecake brownies ($2.49 each) offer recovering chocoholics a delicious substitute.
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.
