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!

Thin Mints are the best selling Girl Scout Cookie, making up 25% of all sales.  These crispy cookies are easy to make at home and taste just as good as (or better than) the real thing.

Samoas, also known as Caramel de-Lites, are the 2nd best selling cookie in the lineup.  If you like caramel, chocolate, and coconut, you will be a happy camper with a homemade batch.

Homemade Tagalongs

Peanut Butter lovers go crazy for Tagalongs.  They are somehow both soft and crunchy, and have that sweet and salty flavor combo that is so sought out these days.

Homemade Do-Si-Dos

Do-Si-Dos sound like a bad square dance, but they are actually another one of the better known Girl Scout Cookies.  These homemade ones are melt-in-your-mouth good.

Homemade Trefoils

Homemade Trefoils

People call Trefoils boring, but sometimes you need a simple, buttery cookie to dip in your coffee or tea.  This is the perfect shortbread, and an example of when homemade definitely beats what you get out of a box.

Homemade Lemon Coolers

Homemade Lemon Coolers

Not every cookie makes the cut each year.  To the chagrin of lemon lovers across the country, Lemon Coolers have been retired.  If you miss those tart little treats, try making them at home!
