    It started in family kitchens in Muskogee, Oklahoma, in 1917 when members of a Girl Scout troop wanted to fund projects  by baking and selling cookies.

Today is the first Saturday of National Girl Scout Cookies Weekend, and local troops will be in front of stores and businesses to sell boxes - at $5 apiece - to those who didn't preorder cookies from individual scouts.
