It’s always a bummer eating the last box of Girl Scout cookies and patiently waiting until next year. It’s actually easier than you think to whip up a batch of homemade Girl Scout cookies. You’ll be amazed at how similar they taste to the original cookies, and you may even like them better! After all, there’s something about a warm cookie just out of the oven and a tall glass of milk.
