The only thing better than getting Girl Scout cookies this time of year is all the restaurants around town who turn those same cookies into desserts as a part of the annual Girl Scout Cookie week.
This year the event kicks off tomorrow and runs through next Saturday (March 11th-18th), and even includes a cookies and wine event at Colonial Spirits, so you can even get a little boozy with your Thin Mints.
This year’s lineup increases the number of restaurants over eight last year, and seven the year before. Returning participants are South on Main, Big Orange, Zaza, Izzy’s, and Dinner’s, which means a lot of the cookie desserts are brand new this time around. Newcomer The Pizzeria wins the award for going a bit nuts with cookies, they are offering up three different dessert options.
Also this time around there is another spot to grab a dessert outside of Little Rock. Pizza Pie-Zazz in Heber Springs joins Dinner’s Ready in Benton to expand the reach more than ever before.
