This year we are saying goodbye to Thank- a-Lots and hello to the new French toast-inspired cookie, Toast-Yay! Imagine your favorite things about this breakfast classic, but in dessert form. We’re talking icing-dipped cinnamon cookies that are shaped like little toasties. Yay!
ABC Bakers and Little Brownie Bakers
Can you picture the crispy, minty crunch of a chocolaty Thin Mint in your mouth or is it just us? No wonder these cookies are the top selling variety of the Girl Scout franchise! With such a cool and refreshing crunch, they are hard not to love. Pro tip: Keep them in your freezer to up the chill factor and extend Girl Scout season.
