Thin Mints !!!!! Gotta have em!!!! I just found out that the FIRST Girl Scout Cookies were baked and sold just 20 miles from here in Muskogee Oklahoma in 1917 by the Mistletoe Troop!!–and the local troops have add a new sales twist this year–for those of you that have a health or diet problem with your Thin Mints or Somoas—you can buy a box—or 10!![:p]–for a soldier in Irag and the Blue Star Mothers will mail it for you![:D]—and one more little tidbit that i just picked up—A Genuine Classic Old Time Girl Scout Cookie Recipe!!!—from back when thay actually baked them!
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar–plus addtional for topping
2 tablespoons milk
i teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
Cream together the butter and 1 cup sugar; add well beaten eggs, then milk,vanilla,flour, salt and baking powder. Refridgerate for at least 1 hour. Roll dough,cut into trefoil shapes and sprinkle sugar on top. if desired. Bake in a "quick" oven–(375)–for approximately 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges begin to brown. Makes six to seven dozen cookies.
I ordered Peanut Butter Patties. Does anyone mention Thin Mints, or is it just a given that all orders contain a couple boxes? Mine did.
Samoas for me. I had a Chinese pug several years ago. Between the two of us, we ate two boxes of them. I still like them although I cannot even do a half box now. Age, weight and HBP prevent that.

The order forms are circulating around my office for
cookie crack Girl Scout cookies, and to my delighted surprise I found that they’ve introduced Lemon Coolers, which look to be the same as Sunshine’s Lemon Coolers. Those were my favorite cookie as a kid (and my uncle worked for Sunshine at the time so we got loads for free) and I’m hoping these will be good. If not, I’ll still have my Samoas and Tagalongs. [8D]
Thought I’d share with my fellow Roadfoodies!
Dreyers Girl Scout Cookie ice creams – Yum! I wish they sold them year round!
fpczyz, you are a true American. Thank you.
Yes love them cookies………………. this scout comes to my door selling her cookies every year and I’m such a easy mark for what these young ladies have to sell. ………. I’m so glad the girls are off the streets and kept busy learning the ropes on how to becoming the well rounded all American girl. The scout pictured here, visits my hood to sell her cookies has becoming quite the sales lady and a very proficient marketing whiz………. this year I bought 37 boxes …….. well actually it was 37 cases containing 24 boxes each. Hell I was willing to buy more but there just isn’t room in my garage to store any more cookies. You see I really loaded up on the lemon drops that her sister sold me last year…………… Frank
Wonderful, Wonderful cookies, always fresh, a great product they sell for a short time to keep them of high fresh quality every year.
I love the SAMOAS the best, such an exotic tasting cookie.
My favorite G.S. cookie was a Praline cookie that they only sold for one year, which was about 5 years ago. I guess nobody else tried or liked them.
I was the cookie selling queen! I still have the badge to prove it. I sold over 5,000 boxes in 1978. Pays to have a large family and a small troop to cover a large area. Of course we went door to door back then, they discourage that these days.
I like em all but thin mints and samoas are still my favorites. Thin mints have always been a mint chocolate cookie covered with chocolate.

Yep…we always order 3 boxes of each of those…since they go too quick in our family.
Usually I would buy them at school when one of the Girl Scout Leaders that was also a teacher had extra boxes. Forgot to this year though…oh well…I’ll just go back in when I have time between college classes…
Well to me the Thank You’s just rocked. Last year they were called something else and were square. Question: In my memory it seems to me that the thin mints were once white shortbread cookies initially. Now they are chocolate. Am I right? I love girlscout cookies. My two girls are in the troop. They are getting a tad expensive here ( $3.50 a box). The thank yous, and the lemon cookies are killer, however I do tend to overindulge in the lemon cookie area which in turn makes my stomach burn uncontrolably. But they are to good.
Worst cookies ever. But then again, I only like homemeade chocolate chip cookies, Oreos, and a few others. So what do I know.
dug some of my peanut butter patties out of the freezer the other day..
A 12-year old scout in my town of Round Rock sold 4500 boxes of cookies this year!
I hope you don’t have to "register" to read this story. It’s cute.
