Scouting Out Sweets

Our families rejoice when it’s Girl Scout Cookie time and mourn when the boxes are empty. Every single bite is cherished! If only there was a way they could last a little longer. Behold! Our Loaded Do-si-dos do just that! With Caramel M&Ms and pretzels they’re the ultimate way to stretch every last crumb of these special peanut butter sandwiches we adore so much!

Loaded Do-si-dos

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cup unbleached flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter flavored Crisco
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon molasses
  • 1 cup Girl Scout Do-si-dos Cookies, broken
  • 1 cup Caramel M&Ms
  • 1/2 cup mini Pretzels
  • Sea Salt

Directions:

In a large bowl stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer beat the crisco, brown sugar and granulated sugar and beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 4-5 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, add the egg whites.

Add the dry ingredients and mix on low speed to combine. Mix in the Do-si-do pieces, caramel M&Ms and pretzels.

Scoop dough into 1 1/2-inch balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake at 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place cookie dough 2-inches apart. Bake until cookies are browned, about 10-minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool. Sprinkle with sea salt.
