Baking Bites in People Magazine!

My recipes in people magazine!

My homemade girl scout cookies have hit the big time. They’re in print – and not just on Baking Bites! People Magazine’s country music special issue (released this month) has a three page feature that includes my three most popular girl scout cookie recipes: Do-Si-Dos, Samoas and Thin Mints. The recipes have been slightly simplified from the versions posted here, so they’re a bit less time consuming to make and are probably a bit more accessible to the occasional baker, even though they’re not quite as exacting as I tried to make the originals. They’re all delicious, whichever recipes you decide to try.

Speaking of simplifying recipes, it’s too bad that my homemade Samoas Bars came out too late to be featured in the magazine, as well. They’re even easier than the classic Samoas and feature all the caramel chocolate goodness of the original.


  1. Congrats!! I’ll have to try to make them this year, I’m missing Girl Scout Cookies desperately. Someone want to send me some in Italy? ;)

  2. Congratulations, Nicole! I love your Somoa copycat recipe, and the bar version you posted recently is even easier and I think a bit more delicious for the time saved.

  3. When my favorite eight-year old showed up with her Girl Scout cookie order form and high expectations, I didn’t have the heart to tell her that what I really wanted, this year, is to try your recipes! Congratulations — what a coup!

  4. Yay!! This is really exciting, Nic!
    Your blog is a great source for all of us – I have tried several of your recipes and they all worked perfectly.

  17. Congratulations!!! What an accomplishment. Can’t wait to see the issue.

  18. GRATS! I’m a new fan of your blog but I have to say, it was the Samoa recipe that did it. It’s the best cookie I ever made! Thanks!

  19. Congrats! I made the Samoas bars this week and they are fabulous!

  20. Congratulations, that is really cool! :) I’ve rarely tried Girl Scout Cookies, but I did try Thin Mints when I was an exchange student. I must try your version! :)

  23. Congratulations!! I love those recipes!

  24. Awesome! What great exposure. You must be over-the-top thrilled.

  25. Congrats! That’s great!

  26. These people are smart. Your baking site is at the top of my list for daily checks. I love how you go out and do some blog surfing for us and find even more great recipes. Your Samoas were a hit– both cookie and bar. I haven’t tried the others yet but have already thought to try them. I really haven’t found a recipe on your site yet that didn’t get a “wow” from the recipients. Keep up the good work and the attention is well-deserved!

  27. Congrats! If I were you, I’d get a nice frame for that article. I did try your Samoas, which were yummy (minus the fact I used margarine – bad idea with those cookies :X) The bars look quicker to whip up. Thanks for making those Girl Scout cookies for us because I don’t have to buy boxes anymore!

  28. That’s wonderful! Congrats! I made the thin mints, samoas (cookie, not the bar) and the tagalongs all in the same week a couple months ago. Each one had rave reviews. I’ve got my eye on the do-si-dos next. Thank you so much for all the wonderful recipes :)

  29. Congratulations, Nicole! I love the samoas, and plan to do the other COOKIES soon…

  30. There is a Martha Stewart recipe that is like the Lemon cookies that I have made but all of your cookies look good.

  31. Congrats to you. I will definitely be making all of your GS cookies sometime! Printed them a while ago.

  32. What terrific news! Your cookies look so beautiful and delicious, it’s no wonder People Magazine took notice! Congrats to you and your fabulous cookies!!

  33. Congratulations! How exciting to see your cookies in print!

  34. Well wow Nicole, this is fantastic. How great for you, congrats!

  35. Congrats! That’s so cool.
