What do you do when it's not Girl Scout Cookie season yet and you're having a serious craving that just won't wait? You make them at home! There are some talented bloggers out there whipping up their own versions of these addicting confections and I rounded up a list of some of them to share with all of you in one convenient spot. While I encourage you to still support the Girl Scouts by buying the real things from one of your local troops (I just can't resist the cute uniformed scouts that show up outside of grocery stores!), these will tide you over until then!

And now, on with the show!

Take a buttery shortbread cookie, top it with peanut butter, and slather it in chocolate. I have no problem with any of that.
Girl Scouts Do Si Do Copycat Recipe by Baking a Moment
Claiming to be even better than the real thing, these peanut buttery oatmeal cookies stuffed with a creamy peanut butter filling are sure to fill the void before you can replenish your stash of the originals. This recipe is naturally gluten free.
Shortbread Trefoils Copycat by Dough and Batter
Trefoils don't get a lot of love or attention... they are just shortbread after all, and I always prefer a homemade melt-in-your-mouth shortbread cookie over anything you can get packaged, so this recipe fits the bill. Mad love for the use of a GS cookie stamp and extra rim of sanding sugar, too.

Lemonades are another shortbread cookie that have been dipped into lemon icing. This recipe looks very convincing, if you try them let me know what you think!
No Bake Girl Scouts Thin Mints Recipe by Like Mother Like Daughter
I'm pretty sure that Thin Mints are the universal favorite Girl Scout cookie. The jury's still out on whether or not they contain some sort of illegal addictive substance because once you start eating these it is really hard to stop. And we all know they taste even better when you store them in the freezer and eat them when they are ice cold, right? This recipe is a quick no bake solution for when your stash of the real thing is getting... thin.
