Grant Park cookie shop sweetens up local food scene

If you’re an Instagram user here in Metro Atlanta, chances are you’ve seen some posts showing ridiculously big, decadent-looking cookie sandwiches coming from a new shop in town.  Well, we here at FOX 5 saw them, too — and we knew we couldn’t wait a minute longer to find out where they were coming from.

The answer is A Haute Cookie, a gourmet cookie shop located in Atlanta’s Grant Park. Recently opened in the neighborhood’s new Beacon development (it used to be a pencil factory!), A Haute Cookie specializes in all things cookie — cookie sandwiches, cookie cakes, cookie milkshakes, and even edible cookie dough. 

Owner Shiana White not only comes up with each and every recipe — with flavors ranging from Red Velvet Cream Cheese to Oreo White Chocolate Chunk — but also tries them out in her shop’s own test kitchen. 

And speaking of, you can test them out there, too, by taking one of White’s in-store cookie-making classes.  And if you’ve got food allergies, not to worry — the “cookie queen” also creates gluten-free and vegan treats.

A Haute Cookie is located at 1039 Grant Street Southeast, Suite B17, in Atlanta’s Grant Park.  It’s open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from Noon to 7 p.m., Thursdays and Fridays from noon to 9 p.m., Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

So…back to that test kitchen.  Spending a few hours creating sweet cookie concoctions sounds pretty good, right?  We certainly couldn’t resist the opportunity. So the Good Day feature team spent the morning at A Haute Cookie, getting some lessons from White and cooking up our own sweet treats.  Click the video player above to check it out!
