This is my second attempt at making Girls Scout Cookies. The first ones, Tagalongs, came out so amazing that I knew this day would come. The reason that I waited so long is that I love my daughter. My daughter has this thing against coconut. Can you believe it? I know, you try so hard with kids, but you just have to let them make their own decisions sometimes.
I didn’t let that stop me this time. It’s true that we also had chocolate chip cookies in the house, which made my decision to make these just a bit easier. After all, she would have some sort of cookie to eat. I’m not a monster.
So here are my favorite girl scout cookies ever, veganized:
- Prep Time: 50 minutes
- Cook Time: 8 minutes
