Girl Scout Thin Mint Pie

I was once in Girl Scouts, I didn’t make it pass “brownie’s” though. Don’t know what that says exactly? Umm…ha!

Y’all my hubs is CRAZY about the Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies. No exaggeration there at all. He likes sweets, kind of has to cause of me, but these cookies are on a different playing field for him. It’s kind of hilarious!

This pie is a great idea to use up any leftover Girl Scout cookies you have sitting around your house. You can adjust and play around with the cookies and see which one works the best. The Thin Mint pie was definitely enjoyed by all who consumed the evening I served it. Happy Eating!
