Things that keep you going and Thin Mint Tart

I have been busy lately. Really, really busy. The kind of busy that makes your head feel like it might pop. And it seems, as usual, that the first thing to get put on the back burner is the blog. But then, at the end of an insanely busy day, you can get an email that makes you want to try harder, do more, no matter how tired you are.

Said email, sent by a relatively new friend, was one of those emails that came at a moment when I needed a little buoying. She simply took the time to let me know that she enjoyed reading my blog, and for that, I’m beyond grateful. Because, as much as it thrills me to know that perfect strangers are out there reading this (and hopefully enjoying it), there’s just something about knowing that you have support from those you personally hold in high regard.

I’m sure we can all relate to this feeling, whether it be a student thanking you at the end of the school year, a compliment on a job well done at work, or the happy sighs of those eating a meal you prepared. No matter the reason, things like this keep us going, keep us from quitting, and keep us reaching higher.

So with that, and because of that, even though I really just want to curl up on the couch and fall asleep watching Hawaii Five-O (the old one…hello Jack Lord!), I bring you this heavenly dessert made with the best Girl Scout cookie of them all: Thin Mints. And don’t give me any of that nonsense that Samoas are the best. Good? Yes. The best? Not even a little.

Check out my recipe here: Thin Mint Cookie Tart

I don’t really know how much I need to say about a dessert like this. It’s got almost an entire box of Thin Mints in it, PLUS extra chocolate. Done deal, right?

And as always, thank you for reading. Whether you’re a stranger, a friend, or a family member…I truly appreciate it.

  4. This looks absolutely divine!! I LOVE Girl Scout cookies :) Your photos are just gorgeous.

  5. OMG! This looks amazing! I just got 3 boxes of Thin Mints and now I know exactly what I'll be doing with them.

    Your green paisley napkins are so cute!!

  6. My social life is now very limited, so my blog keeps me going and gives me the get and go I need. Your Cookie Tart looks heavenly!

  7. Those pictures make me weak in the knees! Wow, Karen.

  8. Karen was sweet enough to share this tart with us. It was YUMMY!

  9. Lord have mercy...I could eat two slices of that pie -- one for each hip! I love Thin Mints and Samoas equally, but this is off-the-charts good, Karen! I must make this...even if I have to scour the entire state of Texas for a box of Thin Mints!

  10. I also agree that thin mints are the best. Thanks for giving me something to do with a box other than cramming it all in my face in one sitting in front of the computer ;)

  11. Love thin mint cookies. This looks amazing!

  12. Adding thin mint is a brilliant idea. This tart will surely serve as a great weekend treat.

  13. Since I'm not a chocolate fan, I'll have to admit that I'm not a Thin Mint fan. Does it help that they're Hubby's favorite? The tart does look amazing though.

    I am definitely a Tasty Trials fan. I love parking myself in front of the computer and sipping my coffee while I read your blog.

    This tart does sound incredible - and the Thin Mint definitely is THE best cookie =)
