Before we get to the cookies, let’s talk about what’s going on this week. This week is, in fact, Girl Scout Week, and Wednesday, March 12th, is the Girl Scout Birthday.

March 12th commemorates the day in 1912 when Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts, officially registered the organizations first 18 girl members in Savannah, Georgia. It’s the official Girl Scout birthday!
