Six Favorite Girl Scout Cookie Recipes

I put together my Six Favorite Girl Scout Cookie Recipes to celebrate some of my favorite cookies to buy…for a good cause of course!  From cookies, to bars, to buttercream to pastries!  All of these are drool worthy recipes you are going to love.

Is everyone as obsessed with Girl Scout Cookie season as I am? I tend to mostly buy Thin Mints and Tagalongs, but they are all so good right?

Love getting the kids in the kitchen to help bake something delicious.  Even though I don’t have little girls, my boys are getting used to helping mom, lol!  Love these boys of mine.
