Homemade Girl Scout cookie recipes... Included the disclaimer: If you are of the 'slice and bake' cookie mind, making these cookies might not be for you. These cookies DO take TIME, EFFORT and a bit of SKILL. Some may call them tedious to make ... I call them WORTH it.
A homemade Samoa girl scout cookie recipe!
Home made Samoas ~ The Girl Scout Cookie Clone Cookies ~ Homemade Samoas (also known as Caramel de-Lites) Makes about 3 1/2 to 4 dozen 1 cup butter, softened 1/2 cup sugar 2 cups all purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract up to 2 tablespoons milk Preheat oven to 350F. Cream together butter and sugar in a large bowl. Mix in flour, baking powder and salt at a low speed, next, the vanilla and milk, adding in the milk only as needed to make the dough come together without being sticky (you may not need any at all). The dough should come together into a soft, pliable ball. Add in a bit of extra flour if your dough seems sticky. It's easiest to roll the dough out in 2 or 3 batches (between pieces of wax (or parchment) paper to about 1/4-inch thickness (or a little thinner) using a 1 1/2-inch cookie cutter to make rounds. Place on a parchment lined (or on silicone mat) baking sheet and make a hole in the center. I used the small end of a large round piping tip. Nicole comments that you can use a knife, or the end of a wide straw, to cut a smaller center hole. Repeat until the dough is used up (it's okay to re-roll, this dough is shortbread-like and very forgiving.) Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes, until bottoms are very lightly golden brown around the edges. Cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet, to allow them to firm up slightly, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
