Hold on to your badge-dotted sash, these cookies look amazing! Sarah James writes:

Better than the real thing, this recipe for Girl Scout Samoas (-style cookie) will win the hearts of all who partake. These cookies take a little time, but if you have it, you’ll find the process blissful and rewarding. The best part is that this recipe is a riff on the traditional Trefoils recipe – so make up a double batch of shortbread and you’re good to go!

While it’s good to support your local scouts, sometimes you just need a cookie, even when it’s not in season!
