Air Fried Samoas and Thin Mints Take Girl Scout Cookies to a Whole New Level
It's difficult to make Girl Scout cookies better than they already are. But, put them in an air fryer, wrapped in dough, and you have deliciousness at a whole new level.
COVID cancelled state fairs around the country in 2020 and 2021 isn't looking much better. So if you can't go to the state fair to get tasty treats this summer, why not bring the flavors to you. And nothing says state fair like deep fried food.
Take Girl Scout cookies, any flavor you'd like, and wrap in crescent dough. You can also use pastry dough. And you can mix and match your cookie. Get creative. I even used one of each and wrapped in dough.
Put the dough covered cookies in the air fryer for 8 minutes at 400 degrees, flipping after 4 minutes. Air fried cookies are healthier than dropping in a bat of hot oil, allowing you to eat more than one. And trust me, you won't be able to eat just one.
I topped my air fried Thin Mints, Samoas and Tagalongs with powdered sugar but you can also try these options:
Cover the Samoas with caramel or butterscotch
Drizzle chocolate over Thin Mints
Top Tagalongs with melted peanut butter
No matter how you top your air fried Girl Scout cookies, one thing is certain - they are delicious!
