When I was a Girl Scout, my mom highly encouraged me to write a Thank You note to every person who bought at least a box of cookies from me, explaining my appreciation for their support of my goals. One year, I decided to get creative and add a GS cookie recipe to each Thank You note--I did try to include a recipe for at least one of the varieties that person had purchased. Amazingly, this had an unintended effect of boosting my sales, as many of my customers decided to buy extra boxes to try out the attached recipe.
Encourage your Girl Scout to find her own creative inspiration this cookie season. Have her consider the option of personalized Thank You notes for her customers.
Please share your GS cookie recipes in the comments section of this post. Those who share before Dec. 31st will be entered in a drawing for a special cookie prize, so share your secret recipes today!
