• What can I expect to find at your shop?
You will find a place where you are welcome to come in and enjoy a snack or just quickly pick up an order while you are out running errands. For detailed information about the shop, visit this page: About the Shop.
• What types of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, visa, mastercard, american express, discover, and personal checks. We can also accept paypal upon request.
• What are the ingredients of your sugar cookies?
The ingredients for the sugar cookies are as follows:
Unbleached All Purpose Flour, Butter, Vegetable Shortening,
Sugar, Eggs, Pure Vanilla Extract, Pure Almond Extract, Baking Powder, Salt, Confectioner’s Sugar, Pasteurized Egg White,
Corn Syrup, Glycerin, FD&C Red#40 & #3, Yellow #6 & #5, and Blue #1 & #2
All cookies are made on equipment that may contain nut and peanut traces
• Do your cookies really taste good?
Yes! The sugar cookie remains soft and chewy and the icing is the perfect sweet touch to compliment the cookie.
• Do I have to pre-order my cookies or do you have cookies available for purchase all the time?
We have both assorted cookies and sugar cookies in stock at the shop all the time….but if you would like a particular shape or design then it is very very important to pre-order. For specialty and custom orders we typically require at least one week’s notice. There is a decorating process for sugar cookies which includes specific amounts of drying time per layer/color of icing. Rush orders may not be possible based on what your design request is. We will always do our best to accommodate your requests….but please understand that this is not a quick process!
• How much notice do you require for special cookie orders?
The more notice you can give us, the better! We always recommend that as soon as you know the event date and the approx. qty. of cookies needed, contact us to reserve a spot on the cookie schedule, especially if it is a large event like a wedding or corporate event. During busy times of the year it is quite possible that we will shut-off the ordering completely once the cookie schedule is full. We will never ever sacrifice our quality in order to take on more projects each week.
• What is the minimum order quantity for a special cookie order?
The minimum quantity for custom cookie orders is one dozen per design. For example, if you are having a wedding shower and you would like cookie favors for 36 guests then you can select up to three different designs and get 12 of each. You can certainly request lesser minimums, but there may be additional charges that will apply….especially if each design requires different colors of icing. When in doubt, just ask! We are happy to discuss exactly what you’d like and come up with a good solution.
• How do I place an order?
You can place an order by calling us directly at (412)831-1616 or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. By emailing or calling you can reserve a spot on the cookie schedule. Please note….your spot on the cookie schedule is not officially held until you receive a return-email from us or until you speak with someone over the phone. Simply sending an email or leaving a voicemail does not confirm an order.
• Do you ship cookies?
We do offer shipping within the continental U.S. We use UPS ground services(or expedited shipping options if you choose). We package the cookies very well to ensure safe transit, but there are still risks involved with shipping a fragile product, as we never quite know what each individual package may go through in transit. Shipping and handling charges start at $14.95 and may increase based on the quantity of cookies and the destination to which they are going. For additional shipping information contact us and we can discuss your individual needs.
• What are your prices?
Our prices range based on the size of the cookie and the intricacy of the design. We have some set prices for particular assortments and favors, which can be found HERE or you can view our cookie book at the shop. As for custom designs, the pricing will be decided upon during a consultation with Katie, depending on what exactly your cookie request entails. For a price quote, just email us at email@example.com and include as many details as possible about what you’d like. Then we can get back to you with an approximate price quote.
• Do you offer coupons or discounts?
We will offer coupons and discounts periodically to our facebook and twitter followers. Make sure to follow us for the most up-to-date offers.
Hi! My name is Katie and I am the proud owner of Give Mia Cookie, a sweet little neighborhood cookie shop located in the heart of the South Hills of Pittsburgh. I say the “heart” of town…because this is my hometown, Bethel Park, PA…and my heart truly belongs here.
My husband Rob and I both grew up here in Bethel Park. We both left town to follow our collegiate dreams, he at WVU and myself at Syracuse University. I obtained my bachelor’s degree in retail management with a focus of study on visual merchandising & retail buying. Once college was over I was drawn to come back to Pittsburgh because of the love for my family, my city, and of course my fiancé! Rob and I were married in 2006 and we started planting our roots right here in Bethel Park, where we still reside today with our 3 year old daughter Mia and our lovable dog Layla. When I was pregnant in 2010 is when this cookie adventure really began….because I made my first ever decorated sugar cookie for my very own baby shower favors! In August of 2010 we were blessed beyond belief when our daughter Mia was born. While embracing my new role of being a mom, I began to fall in love with cookie decorating, too….submerging myself in all things cookie-related and learning as much as I could by trial and error. For 3 years I made cookies out of my home for friends and family, working late nights and early mornings so that I could still spend my days with my amazing daughter. Mia became very curious about my hobby right around when she turned 2….so cookie decorating became something that I was able to share with and teach her. She’s a really great cookie decorator herself at the young age of 3! She is amazingly bright and so brilliantly creative….sometimes she truly takes my breath away with her adorable expressions and her sweet words…and that is why this business carries her name. She is my ultimate inspiration and means the world to me! So after these past few years of growing my hobby into a business, it became clear that it was time to mix my love for cookie-making with my background in retail…and that is how my dream came true and Give Mia Cookie “the shop” was born.
I have so many hopes and dreams for this shop. I hope that it is accepted and loved by the community that I love so much. I wish to learn from each and every success and failure, and to make the shop better each and every day. I dream that two people will meet here and fall in love…. and that my shop will forever be a part of their “story”. I hope that my shop makes people smile. I wish to be successful enough to be able to give back to charities and foundations that I wholeheartedly believe in. I dream that my daughter will be proud to work here one day….and that this shop will always feel like home to her. I hope that my husband and I can one day look back on this family adventure and be so glad that we took this leap.
Lastly, I wish to be a part of your most special family moments… birthdays, neighborhood gatherings, dance recitals, sports banquets, graduations, and more. Both the momentous and everyday occasions that my cookies can help to celebrate and brighten.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Hope to see you at the shop!

Our famous decorated sugar cookies are certainly our specialty. We start with our homemade vanilla-almond sugar cookie dough. Each cookie is hand-rolled, hand-cut, and baked with a perfectly golden edge, all while maintaining a soft fresh texture. The cookie is then hand-decorated with a royal glaze icing in any design or color! The possibilities for designs are endless! We pride ourselves on serving sugar cookies that truly taste as good as they look! Cookies are meant to be enjoyed and we will never sacrifice quality and taste!
Each week we offer a variety of sugar cookies that are seasonably decorated and can be personalized on the spot for a quick gift. Maybe flowers in the springtime, footballs in the fall, snowflakes during those chilly months….you never know what designs we’ll display each week! One thing’s for sure…we always have our signature cookie for sale…the yellow polka dot cookie from our logo! The question is….which part do you eat first? The head, the arms, or the legs? Totally up to you!
There are so many possibilities for cookie designs it’s impossible to list them all! We have a book of standard and specialty design options or we can design something custom just for you! We will gladly meet with you to go over all options of designs for your special event. Whether it’s a dance party birthday bash or an elegant bridal shower, a company golf outing, or a family reunion celebration, we strive to create designs that will compliment your event theme and motif. Whether packaged individually as party favors for your guests or displayed on cookie trays to be enjoyed at the party, our cookies are sure to make your event extra special and remembered.
There is something for everyone at Give Mia Cookie. Our assortment of cookies and bars may vary from week to week…we’re always coming up with fun new recipes!
