Around this time every year, I dole out my hard earned cash to support the the tiny female troops of America - my local Girl Scout troops. To be clear, my gift isn't entirely selfless. In exchange for my dinero, they give me bountiful boxes of bite-sized, baked deliciousness. While I am happy to support the tiny future females of America, I'm not made of money. And at 8 dollars a box, my addiction can get quite expensive. And when the cookies get expensive, I get baking! While I am almost absolutely certain I spent way more on these homemade Samoas than I would have on a box of the pre-made cookies, mine were much larger and much more delicious.
