Homemade Samoa Girl Scout (caramel deLites) with white chocolate instead of dark and a toasted coconut caramel topping. The best cookies I ever made or ate. In my entire life.
Hidden underneath a chewy caramel-coconut-candy topping is a soft, buttery cookie with a white chocolate bottom. When Girl Scout cookies see these coming they hide in the corner, heads hung in shame. If I packaged them I would be rich. Filthy rich.
What sets these copycat cookies apart from the original Samoa Cookies is how substantially bigger and heavier they are with more of everything. There’s no hole in the center so you get one extra bite in each cookie. You’re welcome.
These are easier than some of the other knock-offs I’ve seen. I call them cheaters, because instead of rolling them out and meticulously cutting them with cookie cutters I treated them like a refrigerator cookie, rolling the dough into a cylinder and freezing. It’s a lot easier and faster to slice off the cookies and bake, especially since there’s so many steps involved in making the cookie already.
For the rest of my life I’ll measure every single cookie I make or eat against this one. Maybe even future husbands too. That’s how completely and utterly unforgettable they are.
