In the cookie of life, friends are the chocolate chips
I love cookies. Everyone has their go-to sweet treat that they can’t pass up and if you put cookies in front of me, I’m eating them. I was walking through a particular part of Crossgates Mall and it hit me- that smell. You know which part of the mall I’m talking about. You just came from the movies, walking to check out the sales at the newly updated FYE and you walk by Great American Cookies.
It’s easy to be overwhelmed, they honestly have every flavor cookie you could think of. Don’t worry, take a breath, they’re all amazing so no matter which you choose, it’s going to be delicious (or just get one of each, you know you want to!) I’d had the basic chocolate chip cookie before so this time, I wanted to try something different. I grabbed a Snickerdoodle, Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Spice cookie.
Technically a Snickerdoodle is cookie dough rolled in cinnamon sugar. The added sugar on top of the sugar already in the recipe usually leave these cookies super sweet, this one was perfect. What I loved about this cookie is that it was more cinnamon than anything & I love cinnamon. I have a love/hate relationship with peanut butter cookies because I love that flavor so much that usually I’m disappointed but with the addition of peanut butter chips in there, it was perfect. Last, pumpkin spice. I’ll be honest, I don’t usually LIKE pumpkin spice but ’tis the season, right? This cookie was delicious! You could taste the pumpkin but I liked that it had other spices so it wasn’t overwhelming. They should have these cookies in stock for a little while but only while supplies last, then they move on to gingerbread!
The best thing you can order? Cookie cakes! They have a design for anything, honestly you can have a cookie cake for any occasion in 4 shapes: heart (8-16 people), 16″ (8-16 people), individual (1-2 people), or a pan (24-30 people). They also offer pieces of cookie cake for sale, so I had to grab one of those too. I don’t know why cookie cakes taste better than regular cookies but they do.
With all of this cookie talk, it’s making me want a whole cookie cake for myself! With this upcoming giveaway, you could have just that! Great American Cookies & I are pairing up to giveaway a single 16″ Cookie Cake each month! Yeah, seriously. Once per month, I’m going to post on all of my social media and select someone at random, if you’re the lucky winner, the cake in yours. More details coming soon, rules & regulations.
