Guest Recipe: Homemade Thin Mints
There's absolutely no question that Girl Scout cookies are one of the great American treasures -- they will be in the museums of the future.

The ladies behind Spoon Fork Bacon have figured out delicious homemade versions of three of the most popular Girl Scout cookies. Check their site for more varieties -- the recipe for the most popular, Thin Mints, is below!
