Gluten-Free Girl Scout Cookies?

Last weekend, our neighborhood girl scout stopped by to bring David his Tagalongs.  As he dove right in to the box of chocolate peanut butter goodness, I was reminded of years of Samoas, Thin Mints, Tagalongs and Trefoils.

Sounds awesome, right?  They have gluten-free recipes for Thin Mints and the equivalent of Do-Si-Dos.  (Do you remember those?)  Yum!  I was disappointed that they didn’t have a recipe for Samoas so I did some sleuthing on my own and found this recipe for gluten-free samoas, on Gluten-Free Betsy.  (Great name!)

It’s not the same as ripping into the brightly colored box, I’ll admit, but it’s not too bad.  Have you tried making your own version of Girl Scout Cookies?  What’s your childhood favorite?

    Funny – this weekend we passed some Girl Scouts selling cookies and I told my husband that I wish they’d start selling a gluten-free option! These links are great – thanks!

  2. I’ll let you make them first, Betsy! :) YUMMMM

    YUM! So glad you don’t have to miss out on these. Samoas are my favorite too! Had to take them to BS to get them out of my house–so dangerous…but kept the thin mints in the freezer:)

    How about once lax ends, Moxie?

  5. Betsy says:

    Oh good! Let me know if you end up making any of them, Miller.

    Thin Mints in the freezer are the best! I put Peppermint Patties in the freezer for a similar treat. (Not the same as thin mints though!)
