It’s January, and I am well on my way into “cookie season”. Oh, you are too you just might not realize it. Cookie season starts on Thanksgiving and goes until the last Christmas cookie has been consumed. I like to pace myself, so I still have a few left, and I’ll be pretty sad when they go but at least I can look forward to Girl Scout Cookie season! Three new flavors have been announced for the upcoming season so I thought it would be nice to share all of the flavors with you.
Thin Mints (aka BEST COOKIE EVER!)
I find that Thin Mints are best eaten after a day in the freezer. The refreshing coolness of the mint flavor is amplified. Try these homemade thin mints next time you get a craving!
Caramel deLites (aka Samoas)
Peanut Butter Patties (aka Tagalongs)
Full admittance here: I don’t like peanut butter and no I’m not allergic, I just don’t like it. But for those of you, and there are many of you who do, maybe you are more of a Tagalong person? Also, be sure to try this Tagalong dip at your next party!
Shortbread (aka Trefoils)
Do-si-dos (aka Peanut Butter Sandwich)
Cranberry Citrus Crisps
Cranberry Citrus Crisps aren’t the most popular new cookie, but can still be made in your own kitchen! And now for something entirely different! Cookies and chicken! Yes, you can apparently crust chicken with these cookies.
Lemon Coolers (now Savannah Smiles) aren’t my thing either but are a pretty popular choice! Maybe you also need a sweet snack to go? Why not make a Streusel bar from this “zesty, lemon-flavored” cookie?
**Disclaimer: The last three flavors are BRAND NEW THIS YEAR, so they don’t have recipes yet. Create your own!**
Toffee-tastic (New Flavor)
Finally, Girl Scouts of America is getting with the times and releasing GLUTEN FREE cookies. Toffee-tactics are pretty self-explanatory and could very well become my new favorite.
Trios (New Flavor)
Not only are these cookies also GLUTEN FREE but they also include three cookie essentials: chocolate chips, peanut butter (not important for me), and oats.
Rah-Rah-Raisins (New Flavor)
Yeah, I’m not really excited for this new flavor. Raisins are gross. But if you must then you must.
