You have captured all of my favorite GS cookies...are we soul mates??

:) Christy, we quite possibly are. I blame girl scout cookies for at least 20 of the lbs I gained when I was pregnant with my daughter.

This is a fantastic recipe! I just made them heart shaped for Valentine's day.

I used semi-sweet chocolate and mint flavoring for my chocolate coating. They turned out tasting a bit dark chocolately and more minty than the original. For an authentic taste I would maybe suggest using half bittersweet and half milk chocolate and only adding about 1/2 tsp peppermint flavoring.

Also, I found it easiest to roll them out between two silicone roll-pats lightly covered in flour.

Overall though, they were a huge hit and very easy!

These are amazing!!! I did find it much easier to use the icebox method vs the rolled cookie version. After kneading dough I simply rolled dough into logs, wrapped logs in wax paper, refrigerated till firm, and sliced the dough into 1/8" slices. Same result as rolling and cutting but for me this was much easier. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!
P.S. I used Lindt Excellence Intense Mint for my dipping chocolate... wonderful.

Glad you enjoyed them. Thanks for the comment!

Wow, now maybe my husband won't need to buy a dozen cases of thin mints next time the girl scouts come knocking.

Shannon said...

True!My husband did not buy thin mints this year- a first for him! (of course, we bought other kinds of GS cookies- we just can't stay away.) :) Thanks for visiting.

OK, mine were really crumbly. I haven't dipped them yet but I am afraid they are just going to turn to dust in the chocolate when I dip them! I tried rolling them out to 1/8" and then I did a batch rolled into balls. I will try one reader's suggestion of a log and cutting it (and cutting it a little thicker...maybe more like 1/4"). They TASTE wonderful, I am just not sure the consistency is gonna work for dipping!!

This dough is REALLY crumbly and hard to work with. If it were any less crumbly, you wouldn't obtain the crunchy, airy feeling of a thin mint. Hope they worked out for you!
