Here come the cookies...the Girlscout cookies!

Girlscout cookies are upon us again! It is that time of year when those colorful little boxes pop up everywhere and call to us. The classic, highly addictive flavors are a big hit in almost every household. But what happens if you buy too many? Or if you forgot you ordered some and got more? Besides a slight sugar shock, you may be looking for something to do with those cookies.

I like using them in different recipes as an added little extra something. Or to enhance classic recipes. Try crushing Thin Mints up and incorporating them into moose, Tagalongs make a great dessert fondue, and Trefoils can make the best pie crust you have ever had!

Really, substitute Trefoils for graham crackers in a cheesecake and watch the smile. Another great one is Samoas, probably the most popular cookie of the bunch. If you take them and sandwich a small scoop of vanilla ice cream in the middle, you great a great ice cream cookie.

But my standby favorite is always the cupcake. You can turn any of these cookies into a cupcake and garnish accordingly. Here is a quick glance at the how to:
Samoas: chocolate cupcake, Carmel frosting, dusted with toasted coconut and a full cookie

Tagalong: chocolate cupcake with peanut butter filling, chocolate frosting and a full cookie

Do-si-dos: oatmeal cupcake with peanut butter filling, peanut butter frosting and a full cookie

Savannah Smiles: lemon cupcake, white frosting and a full cookie

Thin Mints: chocolate peppermint cupcake, chocolate frosting and a full cookie
