Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies straight from the freezer"¦ is there anything better than that? I'm kind of salivating a little bit just thinking about them. Mmm. Anyway, you've probably noticed that it's that time of year again, and if I've got cookies on the brain, you guys are going to, too. You're welcome!

What's your favorite Girl Scout Cookie? I think I've made mine clear, but the Lemonades are pretty yummy too, and I certainly wouldn't turn my nose up at a Trefoil.
