You know I tried to make a copy cat version of the Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies.  While those cookies were good, they weren’t really like the Girl Scout cookies.

So I kept looking and found this recipe.  I started making the cookies and then was surprised when it said to put the dough in the fridge for 5 hours.

Yeah…so shockingly, I actually did put the dough in the fridge.  It makes sense, don’t get me wrong.  I just wasn’t planning on it.  There is a brief window of time where the dough is cold enough that you can shape but not too cold that it’s impossible.  Since I wsn’t sure how these were going to turn out, I didn’t take too much time to shape them into a cyclinder.  But for anyone who does want to make a pretty cookie, pay attention to that window of opportunity!

The cookies were good and had a perfect mint flavor. 

Are they like the Girl Scout version though?  Definitely no.  These are still more cookie than they are wafer…and I think that means I’m going to have to make this recipe up on my own…
