I keep seeing everyone tweeting about Girl Scout Cookies. I guess it’s about that time for the orders to go in? My family of full of boys…no young girls are out and about peddling Samoas, Thin Mints, or Do-Si-Dos. Sad, isn’t it? Not a soul has asked me to buy a box of anything. Heck, I don’t even know anyone with Girl Scout connections. Which kind of sucks, as Jon and I LOVE Samoas.
So what that means is – Homemade Samoas.
Is it involved?
But that’s okay. It actually looks worse on paper than it is in action. The shortbread layer is quick. The caramel you can make in advance and warm up when you are ready for it, not that it takes too long to make in the first place. The worst part is that it’s a sticky process.
Totally worth it.
This recipe will yield you around three dozen larger than average Samoas, or about two to three boxes worth. And they will be fresh. And homemade, using the best quality ingredients YOU want to use. And your friends will think you are a genius, because no one understands that you can actually make Girl Scout Cookies without a robot and a Scout Leader.
Best part? No waiting until Spring for the orders to come in…you can have them TODAY.
Have a great day everyone!! I’ll see you back here tomorrow for Popover Day! (It’s a yummy one!) See you then!
