ATLANTA, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Great American Cookies® today announced that the company is rolling out a new line of pumpkin specialty cookies just in time for fall. The pumpkin-shaped cookies, baked fresh using Great American Cookies' signature Cookie Cake dough, feature a variety of festive iced designs and will be available during the new "Share the Perfect Treat" fall celebration. The company's popular Apple Harvest Nut™ Cookie is also returning to the menu as part of the celebration. Both Apple Harvest Nut and the pumpkin specialty cookies are available for a limited time only. The celebration is supported by GFG Management, LLC, a subsidiary of Global Franchise Group.

The Apple Harvest Nut Cookie, which was an immediate hit with customers when it premiered last year, combines the flavors of apple, oatmeal, granola, white chocolate chunks and nuts with a hint of cinnamon and is topped with powdered sugar.

For larger parties, Great American Cookies' Cookie Cakes make it easy to share the perfect treat with friends and family. As the innovator of the original Cookie Cake, Great American Cookies continues to add to its Cookie Cake catalogue by unveiling several new Cookie Cake designs in advance of Halloween (October 31).
