For those of us who crave them more than once a year!


Do you live for the time of year when Girl Scouts come around knocking on your door asking you to buy some Girl Scout cookies? I have to admit that I am a sucker for the Thin Mints and Tagalongs and always end up buying a couple of boxes to last me until the next time the Girl Scouts come around, but they never make it that long.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get your Girl Scout cookie fix anytime of year? Well, now you can. Several homemade recipes for these scrumptious cookies are popping up on the blogosphere.

So, whether you want to create a healthier version of your favorite cookie, or you just want to get your fix during the off season, try some of these recipes:

  • Tagalongs: Baking Bites has a recipe for this Girl Scout’s peanut butter patty.
  • Thin Mints: Serious Eats has a version for this popular cookie.
