Do you love Girl Scout cookies? Do you wish they had a more attractive ingredient list? Are you vegan? Gluten-free? Do you want to donate what you can to Haiti relief funds?
Even if you aren’t vegan or gluten-free, you’re going to love what Diana at The Chic Life has planned for Wednesday, January 27.
Bidding begins at 12:01am 1/27 and will last until 11:59pm that night. You can bid on The Chic Life (a bidding page will be set up on Wednesday) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So what’s all the talk about Girl Scout cookies? I put on my baking pants over the weekend to see if I could whip up some vegan and gluten-free knock-offs of America’s favorite cookie. With the help of Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, my Saturday bakefest was a success and I ended up with comparable–nay, better–versions of Caramel Delights (Samoas) and Peanut Butter Sandwiches (Do-Si-Dos).
I will also be working on a version of the ever popular Thin Mint.
Why vegan and gluten-free? I don’t know. Diana asked us to specify if our baked goods would be vegan and/or gluten-free and I thought, “Sure, why not?” Because non-vegans and those who do not suffer from gluten intolerance will still love these cookies (trust me, I’ve been eating them), I decided to accommodate for those with special diets so everyone can be involved.
I hope you’ll visit The Chic Life on Wednesday to check out my Scouts Honor Sampler Pack–6 Coconut Chocolate, 6 Peanut Butter Sandwich and 6 Chocolate Mint cookies–and all the other glorious baked goods available.
Why didn’t you just donate money to Haiti instead of spending it on baking supplies? Well, aren’t you clever. I plan to match the equivalent total cost of all my bake sale supplies with a bid on someone else’s entry.
Don’t worry. The photographed cookies won’t be your cookies. I had to do a test batch to see if I could pull it off. The winning bidder will receive a fresh baked-to-order batch. Stew is thrilled to have access to the first batch.
