Frequently Asked Questions

Can I bake the cookie dough?

Yes! While creating our amazing cookie dough, Jennifer kept in mind that it would be nice if our customers had the choice to either finish their dough at home or bake cookies. So, if you want to take home your leftovers you may either keep your dough in the fridge for 3 weeks or the freezer for 3 months and enjoy the dough. Or, you may bake your dough at 350 for 10-12 minutes. The best of both worlds is a reality!

How is the dough safe to eat?

There are 2 ingredients in traditional cookie dough that could possibly make you sick, eggs and flour. We use a pasteurized egg product and the flour is heat treated. The heat process has killed any potentially harmful bacteria, so enjoy the dough with a peace of mind!

I have an idea for a new flavor, how can I let you know?

We always want to hear from our customers, especially the ones that love Georgia as much as we do! If you have an idea for a flavor for our dough you can either email us at
