Somehow I missed Girl Scout cookie season this year. It's ok, really, because they aren't really that great anymore. And they had some in the library, so I was able to snack on a couple, but no samoas. When I was over on chow.com, I saw a recipe to make your own. I bought Salerno butter cookies instead of making my own. No way did I have the patience for that. The Salerno cookies were a bit thicker than I wanted, but worked well enough. Two burnt batches of caramel later, I ended up with a delicious batch of cookies.
