Girl Scout Cookie Challenge

Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council (GSACPC) is pleased to announce the return of its award-winning Girl Scout Cookie Dessert Challenge.

For the seventh year in a row, chefs from restaurants across central and northern Arizona will go head-to-head to create a winning dessert with one of the Girl Scout Cookie flavors including Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-Si-Dos or Trefoils.

Each of the desserts will be featured on participating menus throughout February, with a portion of the proceeds directly supporting Girl Scouting in Arizona. For the second year, GSACPC will also offer an online poll for everyone to vote for their favorite.

The 2020 Girl Scout Cookie Dessert Challenge features 27 first-time challengers and nine returning venues including The Thumb and Rusconi’s American Kitchen, who have continued to accept the challenge since its inception in 2014 – making this their seventh year of participation.

In addition, Silver Pine Restaurant & Bar at Little America Hotel is now in its third year of the challenge – with a special reason for participating: Chef Vanessa Ronspies was a Girl Scout!
