  • MYO: Girl Scout Thin Mints

    We love the sweet delectable taste of these much anticipated yearly treats, but now you don't have to wait all year to enjoy the taste of Girl Scout Thin Mints. Here is our very simple, dirt cheap, copycat recipe!

    Delectable Chocolate Cookies
    1 chocolate fudge cake mix
    3 tablespoons shortening, melted
    1/2 c. cake flour, sifted
    1 egg
    3 T cold water

    Dump all cookie ingredients in kitchen mixer, adding the water a little bit at a time until the dough forms. Cover w/ saran wrap & chill for at least 2 hours or overnight.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly flour your counter top, roll out oreo thin. You can use a spice jar cover to cut them out the right size, or a small cookie cutter. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool before filling.



    Coating:
    4 1/2 c. Semi-sweet chocolate chips
    6 tablespoons shortening;
    Combine the above ingredients in a double boiler, melt slowly, once creamy add the following:
    3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract


    Stir well and dip each cookie as desired, cool on cookie sheet lined with wax paper, may place in the fridge to set.

      Shortening is just solid vegetable oil. Crisco in a can is one brand. I would recommend you use regular Crisco as opposed to the butter flavored for this recipe. Shortening is different than lard though, lard is animal fat. By the way, you can buy shortening in a can or in stick form (like butter) both can be found in the baking aisle.

      Sounds good, but as a former Girl Scout leader, I would still feel the need to donate some money to a troop that is fund raising for a good project. Money to the troop would go directly to the troop and not a small portion like with cookie sales. Hungry now. Should have a box left in the freezer.....
