Do we all love those Thin Mints???? They are the best! Along with others I want to forget rather than wish I could have, but I CAN'T forget these!

NUTTER BUTTER recipe to be forthcoming???

Kevin, you are driving me absolutely CRAZY (probably along with others) with all these fabulous recipes and pics. I feel like I should have a spoon and fork handy while at the computer. Your pics are AWESOME!!! The Chocolate Mint Girl Scout cookie is my favorite along with the peanut butter one. I can't remember the name because it's been sooooooo long since I last ate one. Thanks, for ANOTHER great recipe! As soon as I get all the ingredients, I'll be baking these soon...........

Kevin, where can I find "powdered whole eggs"? All I have are the "powdered egg whites". Or, can I just sub an egg?

Bfranke 08-06-2006 12:18 PM

I suspect a whole egg will make these too wet. I get my whole dried egg from www dot cathysbulkfoods dot com. I usually just use eggs, they are cheap enough, but for these I did as directed and felt it was the right thing to do.
HTH,
Bette

Kevinpa 08-06-2006 12:46 PM

I had 1 person tell me so far that they made these with regular eggs and they said although they seemed wet they just added to the baking time and it seemed to work out fine. They commented that since the cookie was thin to begin with the looseness of the batter didn't hurt.
As Bette said I decided to used the powered eggs to eliminate 1/4 c. of liquid out of the recipe by using it to reconsitute the eggs.

Do you think you could use the baked cookies crushed up as a pie or cheesecake crust?

Funny you should ask that, because that thought had crossed my mind.
When I was making these cookies, the first version of these had 1/2 t. baking powder and 1/2 t. baking soda in them and they were a much crunchier cookie but ate the time I wasn't looking for a crunchy cookie so I backed those ingredients out. If I were going to make a mint crust out of these, I would add those two ingredients back in.

If your not looking for mint I have a mock chocolate graham cracker crust that works real nice for cheesecakes and cream pies.

walkingwoman 08-06-2006 04:33 PM

I'd love it if you are willing to share the chocolate crust recipe:up:

Kevinpa 08-06-2006 04:39 PM

I posted it somewhere here but it might be easier to find it here on my site.
