Girl Scout Cookie Season is Here

Those familiar green and red boxes of Girl Scout cookies have begun popping up at offices, homes, and pop-up stores nationwide. And while not much tops a Thin Mint straight up (especially if it's spent a little time in the freezer), we tracked down some upgraded takes on the familiar flavors of your favorite cookies.

At Bill's Burger Bar in New York City, executive pastry Chef Elizabeth Katz created the Samoa cupcake, made with German chocolate cake, chocolate fudge filling, toasted coconut and garnished with an actual Samoa Girl Scout cookie (pictured above).

Jamie at My Baking Addiction turned Tagalongs into a dinner-party worthy dessert by layering them with creamy peanut butter mousse.

Melissa Mack at Sugar Derby uses crushed Girl Scout cookies in her bundt cake recipe.

Did you accidentally just devour half a box of Thin Mints? Rachael Ray's dessert pizza puts the other half to good use.

And in case you can't find cookies near you, check out our sister site Food.com's collection of homemade takes on Girl Scout favorites.
