It's that time of year… girl scout cookie time. I see those cute little girls peddling their sweets everywhere.
I try to avoid direct eye contact with them for two reasons:
1. The goods they are selling are delicious and addictive. I love thin mints, the shortbread, the samoas… they are so so good.
2. Cute little polite girls selling cookies are REALLY REALLY hard to say no to. They are just too cute.
That being said, of course there have been girl scout cookies at the house lately. But I saw this recipe to make homemade thin mint cookies and I decided to give it a try, just for fun.
I will also warn you that just because a batter happens to be egg less, this does not necessarily mean you should eat your weight in it.
It is still cookie dough batter. So have some self-respect. Geez.
I finally took the plunge and bought a Silpat and and I am happy to report that the rumors are true: It is awesome. I am excited to use it while attempting macaroons sometime in the future…
Also, you will be needing dark chocolate to coat these little cookies with. I highly recommend using some very dark high quality chocolate, like Askinosie or other brand you like.
Makes it more gourmet.
And gourmet cookies is totally what we are going for here.
