It's Girl Scout season again. 

Since 1917, scouts have been selling their famous cookies to legions of fans.

Along with the perennial best sellers, such as Thin Mints, Do-Si-Dos, and Trefoils (all introduced in 1951), you can find Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread and Cranberry Citrus Crisps, which are new flavors to the cookie line-up this year. 

Also this year, the girls can use a cool new app to track their sales, and customers can use a locater to find a seller in their area.  

But for those who have hunkering for some cookies, but don't feel like waiting for the boxes to arrive at the door, here are some recipes to make your favorite cookies at home.

  • 1. Samoas

    Samoas --sometimes called Caramel Delights -- are cookies filled with caramel and coconut. No wonder they've been a favorite since they were first introduced in 1975.
