My name is Crystal & I have a problem when it comes to Girl Scout cookies.
When they go on sale, I’ll buy quite a few boxes (ok, maybe more than quite a few) in all hopes of being able to freeze them for later. But, it never happens. I end up inhaling them all in a very short amount of time. And, I don’t share with my husband or my kids. Instead, I hide them & then excuse myself to indulge all by myself. I know, I’m selfish. But that’s ok. I cook every night. I can indulge in a box of girl scout cookies or ten. Right?
But since I never am able to save enough for the freezer, you know I had to start making them at home so I could have them all year long – and maybe even save some for the rest of my family. The do-si-dos are definitely one of my favorite girl scout cookies. The peanut buttery goodness of them are almost addictive, and definitely on top of my ultimate cravings list.
Give me a tall glass of milk, a plate of these cookies, and a good chick flick on the tv – and that’s my kind of evening right there. The only thing that could make it even better is while I’m vegging out infront of the tv is for my husband & children to have aprons on and cleaning the house from top to bottom. Yeah, I know – I’ve definitely crossed over to fantasy land now.
After you whip up the peanut butter filling, be very, a word of caution at this step. Once you get a taste of it – it’s quite hard to stop tasting it – and before you know it, you will have eaten half of it and not have enough to sandwich in between your cookies. If this happens to you, just remember – I warned you!
The frosting is so good, you may want to make up a double batch of it – you know, so you have enough to eat with a spoon.
