Downtown Grand Las Vegas Hotel & Casino recently hosted a Girl Scout Cookie Bake-Off for a local troop, and the scrumptious creations made from a variety of Girl Scout cookies are now on the menus of Stewart + Ogden, Triple George Grill and The Commissary, while supplies last.
Chefs from The Downtown Grand, Triple George Grill and The Commissary created desserts made from Girl Scout cookies and competed in a taste test competition judged by Girl Scout troop members and invited guests. The event was the culmination of Local Troop # 41’s efforts to achieve their entrepreneurship badge.
The public can sample the desserts at Stewart + Ogden, Triple George Grill and The Commissary. Each dessert is a special menu feature for a limited time on the menus of the participating restaurants. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of the desserts will go to the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada.
The winner of the taste test was a Peanut Butter Sandwich (Do-Si-Dos) milk shake with chocolate and peanut glazed donuts created by Chef Marissa Gerlach of The Commissary.
Other desserts included a Thin Mint Cheesecake with chocolate sauce and thin mint chocolate garnish coupled with a Thin Mint smoothie with Chantilly cream chocolate straw garnish, created for the Stewart + Ogden menu by Chef Vivian Chang, pastry chef for the Downtown Grand. Chef Joe Leininger of Triple George Grill created three desserts including a Thin Mint Cheesecake with Bailey’s liqueur glaze, a Thanks-a-Lot Dulce de Leche with sea salted caramel, and Strawberry Lemonades Gooey Bars with fresh whip cream.
