Starcakes- Almond bark is the chocolate coating that hardens when it is cooled.  There's actually no almonds in it.  Some people (read ME) make peppermint bark with white chocolate bark and crushed candy canes in it.  Once you melt it you can dip things in it or pour it into molds and after about 10 minutes it's hard.  It is my absolute favorite baking staple.

447  COOKING / Dessert / Homemade Girl Scout Cookies- Thin Mints on: July 10, 2010 02:13:57 PM
I don't mean to brag but I may have outdome myself.  These things rock my socks

So let's start,
Gather the usual suspects:

2 1/4 cups All purpose flour
1/4 c. corn starch
6 tablespooons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
1/3 cup milk (I use 2%)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
token 1971 Sunbeam mixer

Cream butter and sugar

sift dry ingredients
flour

cocoa

corn starch

salt


alternate dry mixture and milk


add vanilla

and peppermint extract

mix til crumbly
(it will look like crumb topping to apple pie)

tear 2 sheets of aluminum foil and pour 1/2 the batter onto each sheet

shape with your hands into two logs (they will look like poo)

wrap the foil around the logs to hold their shape paying close attention to the ends to make them flat

have your beautiful assistant help you carry them to the freezer

freeze for 1-2 hours

in the meantime whip up a delicious dinner of chicken enchiladas with key lime pie for dessert


preheat oven to 350 degrees
unwrap logs and slice into quarter inch thickness
I used my cheese slicer for precise cutting but a knife will do just fine

place on ungreased cookie sheet close together (the cookies do not spread out so they can lay side by side)

bake for 13 minutes

cool on wire racks

for coating:
melt 8 ounces chocolate almond bark

in double boiler


drop cookies one at a time in melted chocolate and turn over once in chocolate

remove from chocolate with a fork and slide fork on edge of pan to remove excess

place on foil lined cookie sheets to cool

one more round in the fridge to set the chocolate and VOILA!  you have your very own thin mint cookies!

Now go make some!!

love to all!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Girl Scout Cookies and Samoas are my favorite!  I think they are called caramel delites now though.



Anywho here is a recipe I love and wanted to share with you
Gather the ingredients:
for the cookie base:
1/2 cup sugar, 2 cups plain all purpose flour, 1/4 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1 cup butter, token 1970's Sunbeam mixer, 1 tbsp. milk

preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Cream butter and sugar

spray cookie sheet with Pam

add flour, baking powder and salt to butter sugar mixture. Mix well, then add vanilla and milk

Gather ingredients for topping:
12 ounce caramels, 1/4 tsp. salt, 2 2/3 cup coconut, 1 tbsp. milk

batter will be firm and not sticky. Drop 1-2 tsp. onto greased cookie sheet

take a flat bottomed drinking glass, spray with Pam and press onto the cookies to flatten them. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes

melt 8 ounces chocolate almond bark (chocolate chips will work in a pinch but I like the way almond bark sets firmer)

toast coconut at 300 degrees for 15 minutes stirring every 5 minutes

melt caramels, salt and milk over double boiler til smooth

remove cookies and cool for 10 minutes

pour about 2/3 of the melted almond bark onto aluminum foil and press bottom half only of cookies onto the chocolate then lay on foil to cool

cookies are ready for topping

marry the caramel and coconut

chewy sticky caramelly goodness. Spread 1-2 tbsp of topping over each cookie and spread evenly

pour remaining almond bark into ziploc bag and cut off a tiny corner of the bag for piping. Squeeze in any pattern you like over the cookies.

Let cool completely and ENJOY! Now go make some
