Girl Guide Cookies
Melissa Cormier has two great recipe ideas to use up those classic cookies from the Girl Guides.
Cookie Days are here for the Girl Guides of Canada. The Cookie sales are the biggest fundraiser for Girl Guides of Canada to support guiding on many levels. The cookies sales are twice a year. Mint cookies in the fall and classic cookies (chocolate and vanilla) in the spring. Not only are the cookies delicious on their own but you can also use the cookies in various different recipes. Being involved with the Girl Guides of Canada my daughter Brooklynn suggested we create a few recipes of our own using the classic cookies. Hope you Enjoy!

Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool. Refrigerate for at least several hour and drizzle with the melted chocolate. You can also top with whipping cream if you like.
