One of the major highlights of this time of year is Girl Scout Cookies. Unfortunately my metabolism no longer allows for the purchase of these delectable treats (I can’t open a box without finishing it in one sitting) but after walking past 3 separate Girl Scout tables on a downtown walk this weekend I caved and made a batch at home.
Yes, I made Girl Scout cookies… at home. I don’t know why I do this to myself…(especially when a box is like what $4!?). There is something about homemade that makes it “ok” in my mind – healthier in some way… So I had to try my hand at some homemade Thin Mints.
