Girl Scout Cookies: A New Cookie and More

It’s that time of the year where the girls in the brown and green uniforms start making their way through the neighborhood. Parents show up with order forms at work and people post statuses on their Facebook account looking for interested buyers. It’s Girl Scout cookie time!

This year they unveiled a new cookie, the Savannah Smiles, described on their website as “bite-sized lemon-wedge cookies, bursting with zesty lemon flavor.” These crescent-shaped wonders are sprinkled with little lemon chips to offer bursts of flavor and are here to celebrate 100 years of Girl Scouts. Is it just me, or are they bringing back the Lemon Coolers of my Girl Scout days back in the ’80s?

If you don’t know a Girl Scout or if you prefer to make your cookies from scratch in the comfort of your own home, you’re in luck. We have the recipes for the full lineup of 2012 cookies to take care of your Girl Scout craving…even before those brightly colored boxes can arrive on your doorstep, including the new flavor in Lemon Cooler form, of course. 😉

    The Girl Scouts are going for a alfajores knock-off with this one, but you can make your own, too. It's worth it...and, dare I say, better than the GS variety.
