Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Girl Scout Cookies | Gourmet Makes | 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.

  • I tried working with chocolate before for fun and always mess up like, my chocolate gets dry or gets the fat bloom or doesn't harden properly. I found that using a glass bowl instead of steel bowls help, idk if Claire will see this or if its my place to say this but its worth a shot.
