Girl Scout Recipes

I get giddy when I see all of the girl scout cookie stands start to pop up all over the place! But then, what do you do when they are all gone and you’ve eaten your last cookie? Well, you make these amazing recipes! I have rounded up some of the best girls scout desserts! They not only have the taste of your classic girl scout cookie but I have changed up the texture by adding in all sorts of desserts! There will be something for everyone!

I can’t get over the flavor of thin mints or the texture of a good Samoa cookie. I mean, these recipes have the most amazing combination of flavors! Brownies with ooey-gooey texture, caramel drizzled on top, or chocolate melted in the middle… These girl scout recipes are SOO good. There are so many to try that the hardest part is going to be choosing which one that you start with first! Go ahead and try one. I bet you can’t stop there!

Baking Tips

If you are going to get a start on baking all of these amazing girl scout recipes, then you definitely want to read through a few of these baking tips! They are helfpul no matter which recipe you use. Go ahead and try them, they will help any recipe turn out better!

  • Read the recipe and tips: If you take the time to read the entire girl scout recipe all the way through before baking, you will find some specific things that I found helpful! Plus, reading it all the way through will tell you any substitutions that you can use!
  • Room temperature ingredients: It takes a bit of thought beforehand but it’s well worth it! Set your ingredients out and get them to room temperature before baking. This helps create a smooth, uniform texture and it really helps when combining your ingredients together!
  • Keep your over door closed: The less that you open that door while baking, the better off your food will be! When you let out all of the hot air then it interrupts the baking. This means thatyour food might not end up cooked properly! Use your oven light instead!
  • Chill the cookie dough: If you chill the cookie dough before you make it, then your cookies are less likely to spread. This means that you will end up with a thicker, more solid cookie that has a better taste! Once the dough is done chilling, take it out. Let it sit at room temperature for about 5-10 minutes. Then, shape it into balls, put them on a baking sheet and you are good to go!
