Did you know that Girl Scout Cookies are only sold for a three-week period during the end of February and the beginning of March?  I’m not suggesting you stop supporting the entrepreneurial ventures of these young girls, but it sure is nice to have the option to make your favorites all year long! These recipes definitely give the girl scouts a run for their money and are free of trans fats.  Are you ready to earn your baking badge?  Vote for your favorite cookie below!
