Cough Up That Cookie Dough!

How can adults steal from the Girl Scout's monetary cookie jar? Especially when they can use that money to send cookies to our troops overseas.

The Girls Scouts are pursuing 12 court claims in Akron, Ohio, for uncollected cookie money ranging from $54 dollars to $3,500. The claims total $9,000. - Minneapolis St.Paul Star & bloggingohio.

"Girl Scout cookies is a big business. That's a lot of $3 boxes of cookies," said presiding Magistrate Tom Lynett. - UPI

And, surprise.....girl scout cookies aren't just for simply snacking on anymore.

The Art Institute of Washington held a culinary contest with Girl Scout cookies as ingredients.

The winning recipe was stuffed shrimp with lemon cooler cookies and crab. The runners up were stuffed tortellini with watercress cream sauce and stuffed shrimp with Cajun Samoa sauce.
