Scout Cookie Challenge

Are you one of those people that can’t walk away from a challenge? I am. I should clarify. I can’t walk away from a cooking or baking challenge. Once I entered a meatloaf challenge and I’d never made a meatloaf in my life. I’m not a fan of meatloaf. The best part is I won! 🙂  How could I not win with brie stuffed pork, buffalo & veal meatloaf muffins, topped with roasted garlic mashed potatoes, a balsamic reduction and a fried basil leaf? I won this fabulous trophy & a few days worth of gloating and smack talking. Good times:)Anyway this post is about a cookie challenge…This week Cristin over at Cristin’s Cookies is hosting a cookie challenge. The theme is Scouts, in honor of her son passing his Eagle Board of Review & becoming an Eagle Scout! I don’t know much about Scouts but I do know that is quite an accomplishment. Another thing I know about scouts is that they spend a lot of time outdoors and camping. So I made camping cookies and made a campsite scene.  The hardest part was making the cookies stand up, but I figured it out.

If you are up for the challenge stop by Cristin’s Cookies and link up before March 11th or just stop by to check out her work, and congratulate her and her son. Make sure to follow her; she does cookie challenges fairly often.

    These are absolutely perfect for our scout cookie challenge this week Dawn! Fantastic job! Your cookies are beautiful! My son has done a gazillion camp-outs with his scout troop and I had never made camping cookies until he earned his Eagle Scout rank! I loved that you shared your cookies! Awesome job! Thanks for playing along and while everyone wins at the cookie challenge, you WIN with awesomeness! 🙂

      Thanks they were fun to decorate. I only wish I had a bear or some other wildlife in the scene. I linked them up to the decorating challenge along with a couple of my other favorite projects. Thanks for the invite.
