No, this is not a Sip about how to cure the munchies, but it is a celebration of great cookies and wine.
ninety-eight years ago today, Juliette Gordon Low organized the first Girl Scout Troop in Savannah, Georgia. Nearly a century later, there are 3.3 million Girl Scouts troopin’ the streets, and we sure as heck know they’re out there because our fridge is filled with cookies.
As children we scarfed them with milk, but in the spirit of matching wine with desserts, consider these pairings for three of our favorite Girl Scout Cookie classics:
Caramel deLites, a.k.a Samoas
These doughnut-shaped wonders are covered in caramel and toasted coconut and then striped with chocolate. We love delightful deLites with Fonseca 10-year-old Tawny Port. Talk about a match made in heaven.
Peanut Butter Patties a.k.a Tagalongs
What do you do with round cookies with a layer of peanut butter on top, covered in chocolate? Refrigerate, then inhale. Before you do, though, pour yourself a glass of Dr. Loosen, Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Spatlese, 2007. Your taste buds will dance!
Cool and Crunchies a.k.a Thin Mints
Do these even need an introduction? By far the most popular cookie of the Girl Scout lineup, Thin Mints beg to be tossed in the freezer and then enjoyed alongside a rich, full-bodied swig of Bogle Petit Syrah, 2007.
