Guess it's not a BIG secret: An Early Girl Scout Cookie Recipe

Guess it's not a BIG secret: An Early Girl Scout Cookie RecipeGirl Scout Cookies

My granddaughter joined the Girl Scouts in late 2009.  Last year she recruiting her GRANDPARENTS to help her to achieve her goal for cookie sales.  Smart little entrepreneur, isn't she?! 

I thought I would do a little research on the history of Girl Scout cookies.  It seems that the earliest sale of Girl Scout cookies dates back to 1917.  Imagine the celebration in another 6 years, when the Girl Scouts will celebrate 100 YEARS of Girl Scout cookie sales!  

During my research, I came across an early recipe for Girl Scout cookies.  Many of us might even have these ingredients in our cupboards and pantries right now! 

An Early Girl Scout Cookie® Recipe

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar plus additional amount for topping (optional)
2 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder

Cream butter and the cup of sugar; add well-beaten eggs, then milk, vanilla, flour, salt, and baking powder. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Roll dough, cut into trefoil shapes, and sprinkle sugar on top, if desired. Bake in a quick oven (375°) for approximately 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges begin to brown. Makes six- to seven-dozen cookies.
