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.

Taking A Sweet Cleanse

This title may have led you to believe that we are taking a break from our Saturday sweet treat ritual. That’d be silly! Sorry to have led you astray, but instead we are indulging and cleaning out our baking cabinets simultaneously. You see, we stocked our cupboards so full with holiday baking ingredients and have tons of leftovers despite the amount of goodies we made. Time to make Cabinet Cleanse Oatmeal Cookies full of candy bars, dark chocolate chips, sea salt caramel chips, butterscotch, white chocolate chips, Heath bits, butter brickle, and caramel M&Ms…. According to us, it’s the perfect kind of cleanse!
