Food Network Samoa Tartlets

March 7, 2009

It’s Girl Scout cookie season! But, where are all the Girl Scouts? I haven’t seen any outside my local grocery store where they normally camp out nor have I had one come door to door.  So, these Samoa-inspired coconut treats from Food Network will have to tide me over until I can get my hands on some Girl Scout Samoa cookies. You can find the recipe for the Samoa Tartlets here.


Bo is in town visiting from Chicago and we were looking for a sweet treat to make. She actually suggested the Samoa Tartlets from the latest issue of Food Network Magazine. She had already made this recipe and gave them rave reviews. (I think hers turned out better than mine.)

Okay, you all know that I am not a baker. I’m really trying though! Just don’t compare my photo too closely with the photo in the Food Network Magazine!  I wouldn’t say that the cookies were burnt, but they are definitely darker than the ones in the magazine. I purposely set my timer for 18 minutes instead of 20 minutes and they still came out a bit overdone.

We did make one change in the recipe that made the cookies even better, I think.  I found the Edy’s Girl Scouts Samoas ice cream, so I had to buy that instead of the plain coconut. It’s REALLY GOOD!

If you like the Girl Scout Samoas, you’ve gotta try these. They’re quick and easy. Enjoy!

    Thanks! You would actually laugh if I told you about the couple of mishaps that I had happen even while making these cookies. I’m not giving up on baking yet!

    Hi Cathy,
    I’ve really enjoyed this magazine so far. It’s loaded with great recipes and nicely done with a great recipe index in the front of the magazine.
