Girl Scout cookies always have the best flavors! Also make great desserts. Samoas are my favorite and samoa cheesecake cupcakes are so easy to make.
Samoa Cheesecake Cupcakes Recipe
Our oldest daughter has been a Girl Scout since the beginning of elementary school. She’s now in 3rd grade and that means we’ve been doing to the selling of Girl Scout cookies for four seasons. I sure do miss eating Samoas when the season ends and when we run out.
Recently I tried out making a Samoas copycat cheesecake cupcakes recipe. They turned out delicious and my family loved them!
