Today is the day - February 8th is National Girl Scout Cookie Day. And I know that makes you smile. :) I have two girl scouts and this time of year is nothing short of sweet. And crazy. This year is even crazier as the girls have challenged me to create a dessert with each of the cookie types they are selling. I don't know if I can do it, there are six that our area sells. All Girl Scout cookies are baked by two different national bakeries, and depending on where you live, the cookies may go by a different name. I've included both names, but this is the list I've been tasked with:
  • Thin Mints
  • Trefoils ("Shortbreads")
  • Samoas ("Caramel deLites") 
  • Tagalongs ("Peanut Butter Patties")
  • Do-si-dos ("Peanut Butter Sandwiches")
  • Savannah Smiles

First up is Thin Mints: Super simple Thin Mint Brownies. I was making brownies the other night and thought stirring them into the batter sounded good. So I just added a sleeve of crushed Thin Mints to a batch of brownies and baked them. No ingredient list or procedure here, just stir the crushed cookies into your favorite brownie recipe and bake. And the kids made sure there were no crumbs left on the plate.

Next up: Samoas. This one will be a little more challenging, so stay tuned...

And look for your neighborhood Girl Scout. Believe me, she has cookies for you. :)
