Freed’s Bakery is excited about National Cookie Day — and its staff wants Las Vegas to be excited, too.
All day Monday, the Henderson bakery is giving every customer a free chocolate chip cookie, fresh from the oven.
The popular cookie at Freed’s is a special item. Head baker Anthony Fusco said the bakery doesn’t keep it in stock regularly as the bakery wants them to be served warm and soft.
“We feel that, if it’s not purchased and eaten the day it’s made — or even within an hour of when it’s made, it’s not at peak freshness,” he said.
Besides the chocolate chip cookies, Fusco invites customers to check out the shop’s new seasonal items including mint fudge peppermint cake cookies and ornately decorated gingerbread houses.
Visit Freed’s Bakery (9815 S. Eastern Ave.) between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday for one free chocolate chip cookie.
