Girl Scouts cookie dessert challenge returns to Arizona restaurants
PHOENIX — February kicks off the Girl Scouts Arizona Cactus-Pine’s monthlong cookie dessert challenge across the Valley.
Participating restaurants and their chefs are tasked to create a custom-dessert from one of the original classic Girl Scout cookie flavors. The dessert will then be featured on the restaurant’s menu.
Over 20 restaurants in the Valley are participating in the challenge. Restaurants in Flagstaff have also taken up the challenge.
A portion of the restaurants’ proceeds will go to support the Girl Scouts troop in that community.
This is the fourth year of the challenge.
Phoenix’s Churn, near Central and Oregon Avenue, was assigned the Savannah Smile cookie and created Savannah Smiles ice cream.
Chompie’s in Tempe made a Thin Mint cheesecake.
Scottsdale’s Sorso Wine Room created Mint Happens, a chocolate mint cheesecake mousse.
The Girl Scouts organization has been selling cookies for 100 years, starting four years after its 1914 founding.
