Girl Scout Cookie And Wine Pairing


Leading up to Girl Scout cookie sales, I want you all to know that your purchase of cookies does so much more than satisfy your cravings and break your New Year's resolution to be healthier. Money from those sales come back to my Girl Scouts and they do amazing things with that money. What will our girls be doing? To name just a few, they will use the money earned from the sale of their cookies to provide
*Animal shelters with their needs
*Senior /Retirement home gifts for Bingo winnings
*Blankets for Homeless
*Fans for summer heatwave
*Fun trip/ activity for their hard work.
I encourage you to ask each scout you buy from what she will be doing with her money.

THIN MINTS
One of the original Girl Scout Cookies, Thin Mints are a definite classic. The chocolatey mint flavor is to die for, especially when the cookies are frozen. To match the minty flavor of these cookies, you need a full-bodied, dry wine. A glass of merlot will go very well with your Thin Mints.




DO-SI-DOS
Do-Si-Dos are a popular Girl Scout Cookie because of the oatmeal cookie outside and creamy peanut butter inside. To create the perfect combination of flavors, try a Zweigelt wine with the Do-Si-Dos. A Zweigelt wine is light and fruity making for the ultimate, adult-ified peanut butter and jelly treat.



SAVANNAH SMILES
These lemon flavored, powdered sugar-covered cookies are sure to melt in your mouth the second you take your very first bite. To pair with the tart lemon flavor of the cookie you want a wine that is on the drier side and not so tart in itself. The perfect wine pairing for the Savannah Smiles is a Rielsling-Kabinett. This off-dry, high-acid white wine goes well with the distinct flavors of the cookie.




TREFOILS
Trefoils, also known as the shortbread cookie, have a buttery richness to them that we can't help but love. This simple cookie needs a just as simple counterpart. Pair Trefoils with a sparkling wine for a great combination of cookie and wine. The flavors of the cookie pair well with the liveliness that comes from the sparkling wine.




SAMOAS
Samoas are a staple when it comes to ordering Girl Scout Cookies, well, for us anyways. Next time you open up a box of Samoas, try the cookies with a bottle of Tawny Port. Port wine is typically served as a dessert wine, so this sweet, red wine will fit right in with your Samoas.  The subtle coconut and caramel flavors pair well with this sweeter wine. 




TAGALONGS
Tagalongs are one of our favorites. The chocolatey coating gives way to a mouth-watering peanut butter center that's to die for. This savory, chocolate and peanut butter combination needs a wine that's sweet.




TOFFEE-TASTIC
Toffee-Tastic cookies are sweet, buttery cookies filled with tiny pieces of toffee crunch. This toffee flavored cookie needs a light, bubbly wine to match. Try a fine glass of champagne when indulging in a Toffee-Tastic.




Look at all the things you can create with Girl Scout Cookies.

It's that time again for Girl Scout Cookies.
As you can see from the recipes in this post, that just the regular consumption of cookies is of the past.
These recipes will come in handy in the event you have a soiree scheduled for the many facets of your life.

NATIONAL PASTRY DAY


National Pastry Day is celebrated each year on December 9.  The pastry is a name given to a large variety of baked goods which are made with ingredients such as flour, sugar, milk, butter, shortening, baking powder, and eggs.
Pastry dough is rolled out thinly and then used as a base for different baked products.  A few of the more common bakery items include pies, tarts, quiches, and pasties.
  • Pastries can be traced as far back as the ancient Mediterranean where they had almost paper-thin, multilayered baklava and Phyllo dough.
  • Pastry making began in Northern Europe after the Crusaders brought it back from the Mediterranean.
  • French and Italian Renaissance chefs eventually perfected the puff and choux pastries while 17th and 18th-century chefs brought new recipes to the table.  Included in the innovative recipes were Napoleons, cream puffs and eclairs.
Culinary historians often consider French pastry chef Antonin Careme (1784 – 1833) to have been the original great master of pastry making in modern times.
There are many different types of pastry, most of which would fall into one of the following categories:
  • Shortcrust pastry – simplest and most common.
  • Sweetcrust pastry – similar to the shortcrust but sweeter.
  • Flaky pastry – simple pastry that expands when cooked.
  • Puff pastry – has many layers that cause it to puff when baked.
  • Choux pastry – very light pastry that is often filled with cream or other fillings.
  • Phyllo pastry – paper-thin pastry dough that is used in many layers.

National French Toast Day is November 28

Did you know, that there such a thing as National French Toast Day?

 


Lightly dipped in an egg mixture or eggs only; French Toast, brings up memories of cozy family mornings and lovely brunches. Annually, on November 28, Americans all over the country celebrate National French Toast Day.
Families cook and whip up their personal favorites or enjoy it when their Brunch chefs prepare french toast for their waiting palettes. I can smell it from this picture and the words I am writing. Eggs and milk whisked and thick slices of bread dipped ever so lightly in the mixture. Once the bread has been covered in the egg mixture, it is then fried until it has a light golden texture. You can also add other yummy additions to the mixture to sweeten the deal a little. Sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, OH MY!
Top off the yummy goodness with apples, syrup, powdered sugar, peanut butter and any fresh fruit for toppings.
And last, but not least, a Dollop will do ya good... WHIPPED CREAM!
HOW WILL YOU CELEBRATE?

Enjoy,
