It's Girl Scout Cookie season in our neighborhood. And it seems that every where you turn, you'll see a green-vested kid hawking a box of cookies your way.
And yes, I happened to indulge recently. I thought one box of Thin Mints wouldn't hurt and would probably round off our once-a-year night of football-tv-watching rather nicely. This is a rare meal in our house and usually consists of junk, more junk, some cheese, salt, and maybe something processed. So, a box of Thin Mints made total sense, right?
Only, I forgot this year that one of my two kids does.not.like chocolate. And to keep everything equitable, because that's really my job-more than anything in the world, equitability between two siblings-I thought I'd rustle around in the kitchen and whip up some mouth-watering non-chocolate sugar cookies.
Behold. This is not my own finished product, but a very close example:

Your Best Chewy Sugar Cookie
Serves about 2 dozen
They are damn good and beat a sleeve of Thin Mints any day.
