Another month means another delicious cookie introduction from one of the most popular bakery spots in all of Disney Springs! We’re kicking off September with delicious cookie dough news about Gideon’s Bakehouse monthly Cookie. From chocolate chip to a vanilla bean cookie, dark chocolate, coffee cake, and more – the cookies being dished out at Gideon’s are a taste buds’ dream come true! Last month we enjoyed the yummy “Rocky Road” Cookie. Check out Gideon’s backstory for the creation of the cookie (and special cake!) for this month.
First, check out the backstory for the September cookie’s creation shared via Gideon’s Bakehouse Facebook: “A lifetime ago, a sweet young girl fell with a mysterious illness on her family farm. Days became weeks, and weeks became months until, sadly, she was laid to rest in the nearby fields. In her honor, a new variety of lemon tree was planted by her headstone, and its fruit would be given her namesake, Bonnie Brae. Weeks later, the sprouts began to form. Bonnie’s father beheld what appeared to be a small hand emerging from the soil. He reached down to retrieve this curiosity, and, to his astonishment, a figure emerged. His wonderous daughter had been reborn with the same big blue eyes and playfully mischievous smile perfectly settled in a lemon head. Cherished by her family, Bonnie lived a happy life on her California farm but always carried the emptiness of feeling different. “Why did this happen?” and “Are there others out there like me?” she would ask herself each night until, one day, she heard tales of a peculiar Florida boy named Stuart Valencia. The next day, her adventure began as she headed across the country to Gideon’s Bakehouse. To be continued… “
Gideon’s reveal of the September cookie follows: “To welcome Bonnie Brae, we have created the Lemon Poppyseed Cookie, a brand new flavor exclusive to September. On top of the ingredients in the name, you’ll also find a lovely mix of White Chocolate Chips and some adorable little Lemon Mini Chips that we think you’ll enjoy. Just ask for Bonnie’s Cookie.”
But wait – there’s more to Gideon’s bite! “The Lemon Poppyseed Cake Slices! It is available at both locations TODAY (Sept. 1), while supplies last, and each weekend of September (Sat & Sun are the weekends, y’all, not Friday).”
This special cookie is available every day in the month of September. But keep in mind, Gideon’s limited edition items typically sell out each day, so they limit the monthly cookie to two per paying Guest. We recommend that you arrive at Disney Springs early for the best chance of getting to try the Lemon Poppyseed Cookie.
While you’re munching on the cookie of your choice (our favorite is the original chocolate chip cookie!), don’t forget to try one of Gideon’s cold brew beverages such as the iced coffee. If you haven’t had a chance to take a peek inside the popular Disney Springs location of Gideon’s, Disney has shared a look inside the Bakehouse! Gideon’s also has an East End Market location in Orlando. Enjoy treating yourself, Disney fans!
