It's Girl Scout Cookie season!
Everyone loves Girl Scout Cookies and most have a favorite they crave, but did you know that girls have been selling these sweet treats for more than 100 years? The first recorded sale of cookies by Girl Scouts was in 1917 when an Oklahoma troop baked and sold cookies out of their home kitchens — to fund a service project, of course!
These cookies are delicious right out of the box, but in case you want to try something extra special this year, we’ve found eight tasty recipes — many of which were entered in the Girl Scouts of Western Washington's annual recipe contest. Now you can enjoy those cookies for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
