I love Thin Mints - its my absolute favorite Girl Scout cookie. Growing up my parents would buy a lot (I swear a whole case of them but who knows...at least 6 boxes) and then stick them in the freezer....delicious. When I saw this recipe...I thought, OK I will give it a shot. And I have to say, after a couple of tweaks for the next time I make it, they are pretty damn close. Here's the link for the recipe
The first thing I knew I would need was the right size cookie cutter. I searched and searched and all I could find was all my festive holiday cookie cutters - you know ghosts, pumpkins, trees, sleighs, snowman. I needed a small circle cookie cutter. I emptied out all the drawers and my little cabinet where I keep most of my baking supplies...nothing. Then it hit me....improvise and use one of my favorite things from college.
