Girl Scout recipe contest features cookies

Published: Saturday, March 23, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

Girl Scout Cookies are tasty right out of the box, but also work well as ingredients in many recipes. Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois is hosting a contest on Pinterest, collecting recipes featuring Girl Scout Cookies as ingredients.

To enter, follow GSNI on Pinterest at www.pinterest.com/GSNorthernIL. Create a board called “The Great Girl Scout Cookie Challenge,” and pin photos of food made using Girl Scout Cookies. Make sure recipes are included in the pin comments or linked to the pin in some way, and include #GSNICookieChallenge in the post.

The grand prize is a baking basket valued at $100. Each recipe counts as one entry into the contest. To be selected as a winner, participant Pinterest profiles must be connected to Facebook for notification purposes. Entries will be accepted through March 31. The winner will be chosen on April 1.

For more information, contact Marissa Garza at mgarza@girlscoutsni.org.
