Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania (GSEP) continues to celebrate the 2013 Girl Scout Cookies® season by joining forces with local culinary staff to create original dessert recipes which incorporate Girl Scout Cookies as ingredients. In an effort to highlight the mission of building leadership skills in girls, GSEP teamed up with renowned chef Emeril Lagasse’s restaurants at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, PA, (Emeril’s Chop House, Emeril’s Italian Table, and Burgers And More by Emeril), and the Sam Adams Grille at the Holiday Inn Conference Center in Breinigsville, PA.
Shortbread Mascarpone Bomb with Raspberry Coulis and a Thin Mint Milkshake.
Caramel DeLite Coconut Cream Pie with fresh whipped cream.
Lemonades Chalet Crème with White Chocolate Gelato & Orange Blossom Curd.
Peanut Butter Sandwich cookies with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and Caramel Drizzle.
These unique cookie desserts will be available in all locations for purchase beginning February 8 through March 17, the end of cookie season in eastern Pennsylvania, and will incorporate cookie favorites, including Shortbreads, Caramel DeLites and the popular Thin Mints.
Sam Adams Grille:
Girl Scout Cookie mousse parfait. A homemade vanilla mouse, topped with crumbled Caramel delights, topped with a layer of chocolate mousse, layered above with the shortbread cookie, and topped with fresh whipped cream.
This recipe will be available through April.
“As CEO of the Eastern Pennsylvania council, I love the Cookie Program for two reasons: because of the leadership skills girls develop, especially money management and business ethics, but also, of course, because the cookies are delicious!” said Natalye Paquin, CEO of GSEP. “It is a pleasure to partner with local chefs in such a unique way while highlighting what a girl can do when she is given the skills she needs to become a leader.”
GSEP will continue to celebrate via additional community involvement.
