Homemade Thin Mint Cookies
Back in the day, I was a Girl Scout. Oh yes, I had the green vest covered in patches and all. I have no idea what we did, I only have memories of a sleepover at the zoo, a hike in the woods and selling Girl Scout cookies. However, being the below average salesman I am, I basically just sold to my extended family. Then my poor parents ended up having to buy the rest and we ate cookies for months. I was a stellar Girl Scout.
I don't want to encourage you to ditch your adorable neighborhood Girl Scout because nothing beats the real Thin Mints ...or Samoas... or Peanut Butter Patties... or even the Shortbread. And apparently they added a S'more cookie this year. Damn you Girl Scouts, you are good.
But if you have a hankering for a Thin Mint in the off season or just want to make your own and not owe a child money, then this is a great version. Throw them in the fridge or freezer to store when you are done, so yummy when chilled. Just like the real thing.
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think! What is your favorite Girl Scout cookie that I can try to recreate in my kitchen?
