Homemade Samoas

  The best part of Winter, by far, is Girl Scout Cookies! 

If only they still wore this...

but they still look adorable in these outfits!  

When I went to pick up some the other day, they were unfortunately sold out of samoas (my favorites!), so I looked online and found a fairly easy recipe for homemade ones. The only thing I would do differently is use more finely shredded coconut... the topping was hard to spread with the shredded coconut I used.  I am not a professional baker by any means, but I definitely have a sweet tooth. Although, they did take quite a bit of time to make, the result was definitely worth it!
