Dulce de Leche Girl Scout Cookies!

By December 14, 2008

Follow me on:

Girl scouts will be selling a new cookie this year, inspired by the flavors of the famous Latin American alfajor cookie. One of my friends got a sneak preview taste, and she reports that they are quite good. She does not predict that they will sell better than Thin Mints or Samoas, but she liked them. They are crunchy, brown sugar-like cookies with caramel ("dulce de leche") chips. You can see a picture of them here at the Girl Scout cookie website.

Speaking of cookies, it's time for two more recipes from our About.com food guides. We've been sharing our best cookie recipes for the past few weeks in a
Virtual Cookie Exchange:.

Our Guide to Kosher Food, Giora Shimoni, says "If you have never made rugelach before, I suggest you roll up your sleeves and give it a try. It is much easier to make than it looks, and the results are well worth the effort.

recipe is simple to make and delicious to eat.

Jessica Harlan, our guide to Cooking Equipment, shares a delicious recipe for Bizcochitos which are delicate anise-flavored cookies that are served in New Mexican households during the Christmas season.

Ah, spell check gone awry due to the mouth-watering subject matter! I think the cookies you want to refer to in the first paragraph are “Samoas,” not “Samosas.” The latter is a tasty, deep-fried savory treat from India. See what I mean about mouth-watering?? ;-)

Thank you for catching that – you are right of course, I meant samoas (my favorite of the GS cookies – how could I misspell that!?)
