It’s Girl Scout cookie time! I have in my hot little hands three boxes of Thin Mints and a $10 Starbucks gift card to give away to a dear reader.
Thin Mints are my favorite, but I’m not one to discriminate. I’ll eat any cookie. No cookie left behind. It’s the code I live by.
The problem with Thin Mints is that a box only serves two and I have a husband and four kids. My solution is to hide the cookies and share a box with my husband after the kids go to sleep (sharing with husband optional). If they meant a box to serve six, it would have six sleeves of cookies in the box.
Girl Scout cookies are very versatile. They freeze beautifully, if you have the willpower enough to let them freeze.
You can incorporate them in dessert recipes. Here’s a recipe: alternate a spoonful of vanilla ice cream and a bite of cookie. You are welcome.
You could use mint chocolate-chip ice cream, but I think that’s gilding the lily.
A lot of my friends can’t have gluten. This makes me want to cry and film a commercial with Sarah McLachlan singing in the background. The blog Gluten Free Betsy has a solution–a recipe for gluten-free Thin Mints. Enjoy!
