Don't Know a Girl Scout? Make Your Own Girl Scout Cookies!

If you can't get your hands on a box of Girl Scout cookies, use one of these recipes to make your own Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs and more!

If you're lucky enough to have a Girl Scout in the family, or have a friend-of-a-friend-of-a-coworker who knows a Girl Scout, your cookie cravings are most likely satisfied. But those of us without a hookup might need to take matters (and spatulas) into our own hands.

While there's nothing quite like biting into a fresh Thin Mint or Samoa, these knockoff Girl Scout cookie recipes aim to recreate the experience. Many of the recipes are also all-natural or gluten-free, which might appeal to some cookie lovers even more than the originals.
