Eight midstate restaurants will whip up Girl Scout cookie-inspired desserts this weekend in celebration of National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend.
Bearfoot Tavern, Brasserie Circa, Tic Toc Room, Ginger Stir Fry & Grill, The Back Burner, Grow and Yabu Sushi, all in Macon, along with Prime Palate in Forsyth will offer their unique desserts Friday through Sunday in partnership with Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia, according to a news release.
The public may vote for their favorite cookie-inspired dessert at www.gshg.org/vote. The winning restaurant will receive a trophy and “ultimate cookie bragging rights,” the release said.
Most restaurants will use the Samoa cookie -- featuring caramel and toasted coconut -- in honor of its 40th birthday, the release states. However, restaurants are not limited to the Samoa.
Girl Scout cookies “are about teaching girls financial literacy, basic business skills and instilling a lifelong sense of civic responsibility that creates leaders,” Sue Else, CEO of Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia, said in the release. “We are so grateful that these wonderful restaurants and chefs are helping draw attention to the Girl Scout Cookie Program and everything it does to help prepare the next generation of female leaders.”
