Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Girl Scout Cookies | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit
Bon Appétit
Join Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make gourmet Thin Mints, Samoas and Tagalongs. That's right, Claire's making Girl Scout Cookies. Did you know the Girl Scouts started selling cookies back in 1917? But it wasn't until 1951 that the Thin Mint, the cookie most synonymous with the Girl Scouts, was introduced and swept the country like a tidal wave. And now here we are, in the Test Kitchen, watching Claire make them herself. What a time to be alive.

    Depending on the region and how you ordered cookies the suppliers of gsc are different hence the different names for some of the cookies, I depends on the supplier if you get Carmel delights or Samoas. I believe almost every cookie has two names except thin mints. Also hot tip, you can get gsc branded differently all year around at aldies but when cookie season comes around please support your local troop

    Depending on where you are in the United States, one of two different bakeries produces each cookie. They also have different names for the different cookies.
