Local Restaurants Compete in Girl Scout Cookie Inspired Cook-off

Outside the box

The second annual Outside the Box dessert tasting, benefiting Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee, took place on Tuesday evening at Tennessee Bank and Trust.

This year’s contestants included Puckett’s Boathouse, Cork & Cow and Merridee’s Breadbasket in Franklin, Momma Nik’s Cheesecake of Brentwood and Delta Bound of Spring Hill. Each restaurant created their own Girl Scout Cookie-inspired dessert, which attendees tasted before voting for the winner.

During the event, they honored Sharon Hatcher of Hatcher Family Dairy in Franklin with a special message from Al Roker of The Today Show.

After the votes were tallied, Momma Nik’s Cheesecake won for her Loco for Coco recipe featuring the Samoa Girl Scout cookie, created by owner Niki Gilliam.
