Recipe Ingredients for GirlScout Cookies - Samoas

1 cup pumpkin, canned
1/2 cup Splenda
2 cups oat flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tbsp almond breeze
3 cups shredded coconut , unsweetened
12 oz caramels
3 tbsp almond breeze
8 oz. semisweet chocolate

Recipe Directions for GirlScout Cookies - Samoas

  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar.

  2. - Mix in flour, baking powder, and salt at a low speed.

  3. - Add vanilla extract and milk, adding milk as needed to make the dough come together in a nice thick texture, not too sticky.

  4. Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight. (I left mine in overnight)

  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  6. - Either scoop tablespoons of dough, roll into a ball, and flatten, or roll the dough out between floured (gluten free, of course!) wax paper to about inch thickness.

  7. - Use round cookie cutters to make small circles and use a knife of wide straw to cut a smaller center hole. (Or if you're like me, you can skip this part and just make them whole.)

  8. - Place on a parchment or foil lined cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the bottoms are lightly browned and cookies are set. (Keep checking on them, mine actually needed to cook for about 20-25 minutes. It's best to start with 15 and keep adding time as needed)

  9. - Cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely as you make your oh-so-delicious topping!

  10. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

  11. - Spread coconut evenly on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet and toast for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes until coconut is golden. Cool on a baking sheet, stirring occasionally.

  12. - While that's doing its thing, melt the chocolate in a small bowl. Heat on high in the microwave in 45 second intervals, stirring thoroughly to prevent scorching.

  13. -Dip the base of each cookie into the chocolate and place on wax paper.

  14. Set extra chocolate aside.

  15. - Unwrap caramels and place in a large microwave-safe bowl with milk. Cook on high for 3-4 minutes, stopping to stir a few times to help the caramel melt.

  16. - When caramel is smooth, fold in toasted coconut with a spatula.

  17. - Using the spatula or small spoon, spread the topping on cooled cookies, using 2-3 tsp per cookie. (Reheat caramel mixture for a few second in the microwave if it gets too firm to work with.)

  18. - Once all of the cookies have caramel topping, take the chocolate (reheat if needed) and with a spoon, drizzle chocolate over cookies making thin lines (or whatever design you see fit).

  19. Let the chocolate set completely before devouring. If there are any leftovers, store in an airtight container or zip-lock bag.
