Cookie Gala Creates Desserts and Dollars

In Michigan, The Observer and Eccentric has a run-down of events at the recent Girl Scouts of Southeastern Michigan Cookie Gala. The eighth annual event was held this year in the Greektown neighborhood of Detroit. Thirteen restaurants were each assigned a different Girl Scout Cookie to develop into a new dessert or appetizer creation. Awards were based on five criteria: presentation, texture, flavor, use of Girl Scout Cookie and creativity. Girl Scouts of Southeastern Michigan's CEO Denise Dalrymple's choice for The CEO's Choice Award came from the Sweet & Savory Bake Shop. Sounds like tasty fun! The event was also very lucrative, pulling in over $70K.
