Every month, Gideon’s Bakehouse releases a special cookie flavor. Check out what’s on the menu for May!
In June of 2020, we brought you news that the Award-winning Gideon’s Bakehouse was coming to Disney Springs this year.
In December 2020, Gideon’s Bakehouse opened its doors for a short-lived soft opening which was met with long wait times and eager enthusiasm by fans dying to get their hands on one of these decadent treats.
After a short, temporary closing, Gideon’s Bakehouse had its grand opening day on January 16, 2021 and guests were so excited to get their hands on these cookies they lined up early to get a place in the virtual queue.
THE VIRTUAL QUEUE WAS FINALLY CLOSED OFF LESS THAN AN HOUR AFTER GIDEON’S BAKEHOUSE OPENED. THE FINAL QUEUE WAS GIVEN AN 11 HOUR RETURN TIME!
Now 11 hours may seem a bit excessive to wait for an ordinary cookie, but Gideon’s Bakehouse fans know that these cookies are anything BUT ordinary.
Gideon’s Bakehouse’s original store opened in 2016 in the East End Market. With just $800 in the budget, no investors, and one employee, they quickly grew to become a world renowned bakery.
Gideon’s prides itself on it’s attention to detail and theming. Nothing is done by accident.
Even the gargoyle that sits at the top of the new bakery location has a great a backstory!
“AT 5:18 AM ON DECEMBER 18TH, 2020, A MYSTERIOUS CREATURE FLEW OVER OUR BAKEHOUSE AT DISNEY SPRINGS, STOLE OUR G, AND PERCHED ATOP THE BUILDING. HE HAS YET TO MOVE, AND WE HAVE A FEELING HE MIGHT STAY. WE ARE IN POSSESSION OF THE JOURNAL OF JONATHAN LINDWURM, THE ORIGINAL SHOP OWNER OF THE SPACE WE OCCUPY. WITH IT, WE HOPE TO UNCOVER THE HISTORY OF THIS NEW GUARDIAN OF GIDEON.”

May Limited Edition Offerings
In February, guests fell in love with the Eternal Flame cookie that packed some heat with it’s cayenne spice mix. In March, we got a unexpected choice with the Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Cookie that PB fans fell in love with.
April’s limited edition flavor introduced us to Stuart Valencia and his special Orange Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookie.
Now that May is here, there is a brand new flavor to celebrate and it’s a match made in heaven!
Peanut Butter Espresso Cookie
The limited edition 1/2 pound Peanut Butter Espresso cookie features creamy Peanut Butter mixed with freshly ground, locally roasted, award-winning espresso beans.
It is then topped with chocolates and house-made candied peanuts for the perfect amount of crunch.
This is one of the most requested Limited Cookies in our history because Peanut Butter and Coffee is glorious!
It probably goes without saying, but this would be a perfect combination with the PB cold brew coffee!
More Surprises to Come!
Gideon’s also hinted that the fun doesn’t stop with the PB Espresso cookie this month. As storytelling is always an intricate part of the Gideon’s experience, a new character has emerged, and his name is Barnabas Mephistophelittle.
Barnabas Mephistophelittle has come to remind everyone that we are almost halfway to Halloween and to stay tuned because, “Some old favorites and our most unique offering are waiting in the shadows.”
May is bound to be an exciting time if you plan to make a visit at Gideon’s Bakehouse!
You can’t go wrong with anything you order at Gideon’s Bakehouse, but if you love creamy peanut butter and a jolt of expresso bean to kickstart your day, be sure to grab this month’s new cookie while it lasts!
