Browse your Pinterest feed on any given day and you’ll find an endless stream of dessert masterpieces to behold.
Cakes complete with a zillion perfectly spaced layers (including the width of homemade, creamy, mouthwatering buttercream frosting), fondant masterpieces, and sculpture work indicative of a university degree in fine art.
I’m not crafty. Not even in the kitchen with food projects.
The thought of spending copious amounts of time on tedious projects involving little bits of anything makes me want to snarl.
Not that I haven’t tried my hand at a project or two; I’ll try anything once!
And I sure do like watching others try their hand at mastering baking prowess.
Ahem, looking at you The Great British Baking Show.

This time of year we all have Girl Scouts Cookies® on the brain and in this house Thin Mints tend to be what’s hoarded.
If you don’t have access to a Girl Scout near you, then you’ll be happy to know that ALDI makes a wonderful knock-off that’ll work just fine in this recipe!
