Look out- here they come

Just when you thought it was safe to make that New Year's Resolution to lose weight  - IT's GIRL SCOUT COOKIE TIME!!!!

Ok actually it hasn't started yet. There is another week and a half before the Girl Scout army is out in droves, knocking on doors and tempting you with Thin Mints and sweet faces. I am not actually sure how we are going to handle it this year with the blood sugar troubles in our house. Maybe I will come out of February without my seasonal 5 pounds of cookie weight? You never know.

In preparation I will feature a cookie recipe every day or so, just to get you warmed up and ready to say "yes" to that happy face when it comes knocking. Enjoy!



Chocolate Thin Mint Pizza Supreme

1 pkg. (18 oz.) refrigerated chocolate chunk cookie dough
1/2 pkg. (19 cookies) Girl Scout Thin Mints
1/2 cup white chocolate morsels
Vanilla ice cream, optional
Press cookie dough evenly in the bottom of an ungreased 12-inch pizza pan or a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. (Dough will barely cover the pan.) Break Thin Mints into halves or thirds; press cookie pieces into dough, covering evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Place white chocolate morsels into a small self-closing bag. Microwave the bag of morsels on MEDIUM HIGH (70% power) for 40 to 50 seconds or until melted. Snip one corner (about 1/8 inch) off the bottom of the bag. Hold bag tightly at top and drizzle white chocolate stripes over top of pizza. When cool, cut pizza into 8 or 10 wedges. If desired, top each serving with a scoop of ice cream.
Makes:8 to 10 servings
