Thin Mint Cream Pie

Thin Mint Cream Pie from www.laurenslatest.comYou know what’s funny? Me re-watching Victoria’s Secret fashion shows being huge at 30 weeks pregnant wearing tapered sweat pants and big ugly socks with frizzy hair and no make-up eating this entire pie.

My husband is one lucky man.

Anyways, I made a pie. And it’s the bomb. I’ve also been looking up new workouts to try after I have this little dude, but I’m thinking that my good intentions will be put on hold because of ….. this pie.

Blasted girl scouts and their irresistible cookies.

I think perhaps that chocolate and mint are one of my favorite combinations ever. Especially when cream is somehow involved. Umm, definitely when cream is involved. I do it because I can. And because I had 2 cups of cream I had to get rid of. And by get rid of I mean eat.

So yes, I made a Thin Mint Cream Pie. Thin mint crust, chocolate pudding filling and pepperminty whipped cream on top. HEAVEN! And super simple to whip out. I made the pudding from what I had on hand, but feel free to use a small box of chocolate jello to eat that much faster. And please make sure to add the whipped cream. My husband is a girl, doesn’t like ‘tasteless empty calories’ and scraped his cream off.

I was seriously this close to smacking him.

Moral of the story: don’t be like him.

    Girl Scout cookies ALWAYS get in the way of working out! Ugh! My favorites are either Thin Mints or Samoas… I’ll go with Thin Mints, because I can eat a good 3 sleeves before having to take a break – samoas are quite a bit harder to eat that many of.

    I love Tagalongs/Peanut Butter Patties! I can eat a box in a sitting. Second favorite is Peanut Butter Sandwich/Do-Si-Dos. Oh! And Thanks-A-Lots that we don’t get in our council anymore! ๐Ÿ™ Yeah, I’m basically in love with Girl Scout Cookies.

    As a girl scout who sold thousands of cookies. (No, not kidding), this is a difficult question for me. I always advised others of the individual cookies strengths and weaknesses. Or when in doubt, which cookies had the most per box. (Usually trefoils and thin mints back in my day).

    I think when in doubt, it would be Samoa, Thin Mint, Trefoil, Tagalong and then the Do si do just for it’s ability to be so delicious with a glass of milk…

    To be honest, I moved to the States from Italy last year and so far I have only tried Samoa cookies. I love them! Now I really want to try the mint cookies! I need to make this pie very soon.

    My fave Girl Scout Cookie is the Samoas!!! Love them!! Thin mints come in a close 2nd though! I like to freeze them and eat them chilled!

  6. Kara Composano

    Ohh favorite cookie. Toss up between thin mints and the peanut butter chocolate ones. Oh and the lemon. And the shortbread. Oh who am I kidding I love them all!!!!

    Thin Mints! I have to admit I have yet to try any other variety of Girl Scouts cookies but I can’t imagine anything tasting better than a Thin Mint, especially when they are chilled.
