Foodies have taken to Atlanta like no city in the south. That includes baked goods like cookies. Cookies may just be a flat baked good made of flour, sugar, eggs and butter, but to fans of the cookies, it’s the little things that make them special. A pinch of this and a touch of that, along with creative flavoring, make cookies an important part of our diet. The cookie business is a $6.2 billion industry in the U.S., and the average American sits down to eat cookies 39 times per year. Atlanta has numerous bakeries and confectionaries that will satisfy your cookie “sweet tooth.”
