I went to Girl Scout camp for free because of Girl Scout cookies. My mom didn't put up the order form at work either, back in my day I lived in a large apartment complex and I went door to door selling Girl Scout cookies. Thin Mints were my favorite. I always try to buy some from any Girl Scouts in my life. I learned some valuable lessons from going door to door when it was still safe to do so!
When I happened upon these vibrant green mint chips, I knew I had to make a grown-up version of my childhood favorite. I wanted to make a chewy dark cookie (fun fact, we use a little bit of black cocoa to give it that dark look - like an Oreo) so these mint chips would pop. Over the years the chips aren't coming out as vibrant green as they used to, but I think the flavor is still vibrant and delicious.
At that point, we had our signature Bruins inspired cookie, so I figure it would be a good time to have a Red Sox one. We used to only offer this during baseball season, but there were strong opinions that it should never leave the lineup. We made it a year-round flavor.
