Baking Monday - Girl Scouts in the Kitchen

Today I tackled some Girl Scout-inspired cookies, Tagalongs and Thin Mints (jokingly called Left-Behinds and Slim Mints).

Naked cookies.

Peanut buttered and ready for dipping.

These were very time-consuming, especially the Left-Behinds. (BTW, the filling recipe makes about double of what is actually needed to fill the cookies ... guess I'll be making pb filled pretzels later this week ... aw, shucks!)

It's kind of misleading to compare them to GS cookies, because the cookies are much softer and don't have that distinctive crunch of a store-bought cookie. (Maybe I should make them thinner next time?) However, flavor-wise, they are still really yummy and worth a try. The mint cookies are delicious all on their own. LOTS of butter make these more of a minty-chocolate shortbread. The pb cookies are very rich ... serve with milk!
