I bet I know what you’re thinking: Girl Scout cookies for an ingredient?! Aren’t they just a delicious dessert on their own? Indeed they are. BUT they also make desserts even more delicious and it turns out they have some other uses too! We had a great time experimenting with cookies as an ingredient and I’m looking forward to sharing our experiences and recipes!
Two thousand twelve is “the year of the girl” and here is some history about the Girl Scout cookie:
Girl Scout Cookies are a familiar part of American culture. For more than 80 years, Girl Scouts, with the enthusiastic support of their families, have helped ensure the success of local Girl Scout Cookie activities. From its earliest beginnings to its current popularity, the sale of cookies has helped Girl Scouts have fun, develop valuable life skills and make the world a better place by helping to support Girl Scouting in their communities.
There are many different kinds of cookies and this week we’ll be “cooking” with Tagalongs, Thin mints and Do-si-dos. Hopefully you have some leftover cookies to try these for yourself!
