GREENWICH, Conn. -- Who knows how the cookie will crumble? Or more specifically, which Girl Scout will win the "Taste of Home" baking contest? 

Greenwich Girl Scout Lindsay Sylvester, a Glenville School fifth-grader, already considers herself a winner.

She and her aunt, former Girl Scout Donna Fumuso of Pawling, N.Y., have been selected among the Top 16 in the National Girl Scout Cookie Recipe Contest sponsored by "Taste of Home" magazine for their oatmeal raisin cookie pie.

"We know we loved how it tasted," said Sylvester of their creation. "But to have a cooking magazine think so too is very cool. Now I just need people to vote for us!”

That's where you come in. Daily votes count, but on computers only (i-Phones and i-Pads don't seem to work).

Go here and click under the cake/pie/cupcake category. The contest closes April 14. You can cast a vote once every 24 hours per category.

The two Girl Scouts (past and present) are the only ones in their category from the New York/Connecticut region. They would love the grand prize of $500 or even the $250 Runner-Up prize, though both said they are happy to have even gotten this far. 

"This is so exciting," Sylvester said with multiple exclamation marks. "I love to bake with my aunt, and I can’t believe we made it to the top four in our category."
