Recipe For Homemade Do-Si-Dos (Girl Scout Cookies)


I waited to post these until after the wave of Girl Scout cookie salesladies had left their tables outside the grocery stores. I would not want to put a dent into their sales. Frankly, though, I can’t afford those ever shrinking lovely cookies, so I make my own. The three flavors that my family has loved since my own Brownie Scout days are Do-Si-Dos, Thin Mints and Samoas.

I searched all over the internet for a recipe for these peanut butter oatmeal sandwich cookies. I found a few that sounded good, but none were just what I wanted, so I punted and came up with these. My family said they were better than any other peanut butter cookie I have ever made for them. One son, who didn’t know I was attempting a copycat recipe said, “These taste like those cookies you buy sometimes.” I didn’t even have to coach him!
