Scouting Sweetness: Homemade Samoas Girl Scout Cookies for Serious Eats

Fact: Samosas and Samoas, while both delicious, are not the same. In a nutshell, the former is a savory snack, often eaten before an Indian meal; the latter is a sweet cookie, sold by Girl Scouts, enjoyed basically any time.

Of course, there's no need to power through this homonym haze in some areas of the country, where these chocolate-coconut-shortbread-caramel confections are known as "Caramel deLites."

But regardless of geography and nomenclature, one thing is for sure: these cookies are tasty little morsels. And when you've reached the end of the box you purchased from your local Scouts, there's a surefire solution for sweet gratification: make your own batch (my recipe is adapted from recipes onBaking Bites and Batter Licker), and call them whatever you want.

Check out the full entry and recipe on Serious Eats!

These are my husband's favorite--we'll have to try them, along with the Tagalongs from a few posts ago :) Thanks so much!

As a zero waste kind of gal I am always so happy to have recipes for those foods I pass up because of their excessive packaging. Thanks a million! Would you mind if a linked to your post on my blog? Thanks Tamara
