Chocolate Pudding Pie in a Samoas Cookie Crust

To truly maximize how many Samoas you can stuff into your mouth in one serving, you've simply got to crush them up and form them into a cookie pie crust. Using the same method as making a graham cracker crust, the Samoas cookie crust is the definition of decadence: sticky, crispy, and caramelly, it gets even crazier when you fill it with a rich, creamy chocolate pudding filling studded with extra coconut, and top it off with a billowy cloud of whipped cream.

Original Girl Scout Cookies

This is adapted from a recipe published by Girl Scout council leader Florence E. Neil in The American Girl in 1922. Note that the dough is very soft and sticky. If the dough grows too soft as you roll it out you may need to return it to the refrigerator to chill it further before cutting out cookies. More

Cakespy: Homemade Do-Si-Dos Girl Scout Cookies

Do-Si-Dos (sometimes called Peanut Butter Sandwiches): where peanut butter and oatmeal cookie work together to make one beautiful baked good. This homemade version comes out a bit fatter and more moist than the original (not such a bad thing, right?), but the flavor is fairly spot-on: sweet, nutty, lightly salty, and very buttery. That is to say, dangerously addictive. More

Cakespy: Homemade Tagalong Girl Scout Cookies

This is not to say you shouldn't buy cookies from those earnest young Scouts. But also make a batch of your own for a delicious homemade snack. These Tagalongs are slightly fatter and more substantial than the Scout version—you'll enjoy each chocolatey, peanut buttery, shortbready bite. More

Cakespy: Homemade Thin Mints

Smug, smug little Girl Scouts. Those sweet-looking sugar-pushers can be found all over this time of year, lurking outside drugstores and markets with their addictive little missives of sweet cookies. Oh, they seem so friendly and accommodating now. But what happens in a month or so, when they're gone and you've got a serious jonesing for some Samoas or Thin Mints? You make your own, that's what you do. More
