Today is National Girl Scout Day.  Each year they celebrate the creation of the first Girl Scouts group which formed on March 12th, 1912.  I personally was not ever a Girl Scout but I’ve had my fair share of Girl Scout cookies.

Lately I’ve seen a number of homemade and DIY Girl Scout Cookies recipes on Pinterest, as well as a number of recipes that use Girl Scout cookies as an ingredient.  I thought it would be fun to share some of those recipes with you; eating cookies sounds like a great way to celebrate to me!  I definitely will have to give the homemade Samoas a try as they’re one of my husband’s favorites.  But the Tagalongs with no butter and no sugar are intriguing, too, and I may have to try that one, as well.

If you have some extra Thin Mint cookies kicking around (ha ha, extra cookies.  I know, funny) may I suggest using them as a base for mini cheesecakes?  They are delicious.  They’re also great chopped up for Grasshopper Pie.

Which kind of Girl Scout cookies is your favorite?  Do you have any recipes to share?

  1. Thin Mints are my all time favorite Girl Scout cookie & I do not buy them because I will eat them all :) As yummy as these look, I don’t need the temptation!

  2. I love Trefoils! I have heard about being able to use copycat recipes to make your own Girl Scout cookies. I am going to try making the Samoas for my hubby!

  3. My husband’s favorite is Samoa – If I could make this for him, he’d be impressed! I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
