It is the time of year where we are tempted to buy Girl Scout cookies from our kids, neighbors and coworkers children. While you should absolutely buy a few boxes because they are delicious, but also because you are helping out an organization which focus on the growth a development of young girls. A worthwhile cause.

After you have purchased a few boxes, give this recipe a try for Dirty Girl Scout Cookies.

Dirty Girl Scout Cookies


  • 1/2 pound unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 32 Junior Mint candies


  • 1 3/4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Bailey's
  • 1 tablespoon Kahlua
  • 1 tablespoon green crème de menthe

Preheat the oven to 325ºF. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpat mats.

In a large bowl: cream the butter, sugar, and light brown sugar with a mixer until fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla, and espresso powder.

In a medium bowl: combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Increasingly beat the dry ingredients into the butter mixture, stopping to scrape down the bowl as needed.

Drop the dough into rounded balls (about 3 tablespoons each) onto the cookie sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart. Bake until the cookies have flattened.

Cool on baking sheets for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once cookies have cooled, make the glaze. In a medium bowl, combine the confectioners’ sugar with the liqueurs and stir with a whisk until smooth. Set the wire rack with the cookies on it over a row of paper towels.

Using a teaspoon, drizzle glaze over each cookie, and press a Junior Mint into the center.

Allow for glaze to sit, on cookies for at least an hour before serving. Congratulations, you have about a dozen and half Dirty Girl Scout cookies.
