the BEST cookies ever. just ask my kids…


i love girl scout season.

those little girls are so sweet.  so cute.  i actually like them outside the stores.  i appreciate when kids have to actually sell something face to face to reach their goal.  nobody wants to do that anymore.  yes, i’m old school.  and proud of it.

in order to make them all happy, I buy a box of Thin Mints from each visit and store in my freezer so I can make these cookies all year long.


1 c. butter, softened

1 small pkg Instant Vanilla Pudding mix

3/4 c. brown sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

2 large eggs

2 1/4 (although i use close to 2 1/2) c. flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 sleeve Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies (about 16 cookies), lightly crushed

– mix butter and dry pudding mix.  add vanilla and brown sugar.  add eggs one at a time.  mix until fluffy.  mix in flour, baking soda and salt.  Mix well.  Lightly fold in Thin Mints.  Roll into balls.  Bake in preheated 375 oven for 9-10 minutes.  EAT!

when my kids see the girl scouts… they yell, “mom, did you see?  girl scout cookies!  can you make your cookies?”

and i do.

happy monday.
