My absolute favorite thing to get on my birthday is a Great American Cookie Cake. The cookie is so moist and tasty and I could eat the frosting with a spoon.

Every once in a while, I'll treat myself to a double-doozie M&M cookie for lunch. Don't judge me.

The first Great American Cookies store opened in Atlanta, Georgia in 1977 with a concept based on a chocolate chip cookie recipe from the founder's grandmother.

Great American Cookies is celebrating its 40th birthday and they're giving you the presents. On June 22 the first 40 guests at each participating store will receive a free 16 inch cookie cake decorated with "Happy Birthday." Plus, they'll be offering 40 cent regular cookies all day with a of limit 12.

Great American Cookies has one location in Sioux Falls. It's located in the Sears Wing of the Empire Mall. I spoke with the store and they will be participating in the 40 cent cookie promotion, but have not made a decision if their store will give away the Cookie Cakes. You may want to call ahead.
