As of September 2019, the Girl Scouts of the USA have announced they will be changing the name of one of their most popular cookies from Samoas to Caramel deLites. While the cookies themselves will remain unchanged, the new name is intended to be more inclusive. According to a statement released by the Girl Scouts, “Our world has changed a lot since we first started selling cookies in 1917, but our Mission hasn’t. We’re still here to empower girls everywhere, and our cookie program provides the opportunity for girls to take responsibility, build important life skills, and become leaders in their own lives.” The name change is just one of many ways that the Girl Scouts are working to update their image for a new generation.

How do you make a Samoa cookie

The Samoa cookie is a popular treat that features a creamy filling sandwiched between two crispy cookies. The cookies are then dipped in chocolate and covered with toasted coconut flakes. While the exact origin of the Samoa cookie is unknown, it is believed to have been inspired by the traditional Samoan dish known as fa’alifu. To make a Samoa cookie, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of shredded coconut
  • 1 cup of dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of toasted coconut flakes

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla extract. Gradually add flour mixture to wet ingredients until well blended.

Stir in shredded coconut and chocolate chips. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until cookies are golden brown. Let cool on a baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cookies are cooled, dip in melted chocolate and sprinkle with toasted coconut flakes.
