I found this recipe a while back, and have been meaning to make it FOREVER, but haven't tried it yet! This has been sitting in my cookbook cupboard for so long, I don't even remember where I got it anymore! If anyone finds another type of cookie that would be similar to the girl scout cookies, please let me know! I couldn't make this right away because I didn't have them! Prep time incluces chill time, and is an estimate, since I've never made this!
