Yes, knock-off Girl Scout cookies..Samoas, Thin Mints, Do-Si-Dos and Tagalongs!
I think I got the link to the recipes on Thursday night, and by quitting time yesterday, I was chomping at the bit to get home, get my cardio done ( as an attempt at damage control on the amount of cookie dough I would likely be consuming later last night), and get to the business of Samoa Cookie Baking...Followed by an all day Saturday bake-off, of which ended in a sugar induced coma..and Tag-a-longs and thin mints to round out my Girl Scout wannabe's.
I can not take credit for the recipes, at all..But if you want to make some yourself, here's a link to Baking Bites Samoas , Baking Bites Tag-a-longs, and Baking Bites Thin Mints. I followed the recipes for the most part, subbing ANPB ( All natural Peanut Butter) for creamy JIF or SKIPPY, and Mint chocolate candy melts for the coating on the thin mints, instead of using high quality chocolate and mint extract.
Why pay $4 a box for 16 cookies when you can have 3 dozen? The ingredients are nothing special, most of us who love to bake already have most the ingredients anyways. The only thing I had to purchase were caramels, which shhhhhhh...I bought at the Dollar Tree..and Wilton dark chocolate mint candy melts for the thin mints.
If you're feeling nostalgic, go for it..make some Girl Scout cookies! These ones are even better than the real thing.
