It’s International Women’s Day! We’re celebrating it by recreating a classic cookie recipe made famous by young women learning about service: the girl scouts.

Taking inspiration from the famous Thin Mint cookie of Girl Scout Cookies, we created a simple and easy cookie recipe that you can make faster than a woman can say equal rights (because she’ll be interrupted by men explaining that we already have them, hard eyeroll).

What’s your favorite Girl Scout Cookie?

This version uses actual mint leaves to give it a fresher flavor, but if you want that classic white patty look, you can substitute the mint with 1/2 tbsp. peppermint extract. This isn’t an exact replica, giving the flavor of a Thin Mint but with the texture of a peppermint patty. We hope you enjoy it anyway, while taking a break from dismantling the patriarchy.
