Girl Scout Samoa Hamantaschen
Sounds amazing, right??? I am absolutely obsessed (like everyone else out there) with Girl Scout Cookies and my favorite are definitely the Samoa cookies. A round shortbread cookie dipped in chocolate, topped with toasted coconut caramel and drizzled with even more chocolate. How could anything be wrong with that? So I figured why not turn it in to the ultimate hamantaschen for Purim, which is coming up in just a few weeks!
4 sticks (2 cups) margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1 (8 oz) container whipping cream
6 cups flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup caramel (homemade or store-bought melted caramels)
1 1/2 cups shredded toasted coconut
1 cup chocolate chips

Servings (hamantaschen)   recalculate

Helpful Hints
I literally have nothing bad to say about these hamantaschen!!! What a great way to eat a Girl Scout Samoa cookie without desperately tracking down a girl scout. The shortbread dough had a beautiful buttery flavor and fell apart in my mouth, just like a traditional shortbread. You wouldn’t believe I used margarine instead of butter! But hey, if you’re making your hamantaschen dairy, go ahead and use regular delicious butter. And how cool that there are no eggs in the dough! The toasted coconut caramel filling was creamy and crunchy and the sweetness certainly balanced out the almost-savory dough. Oh man, and the chocolate…that delicious chocolate. What else can I say? You must make these cookies. You must!

There was no baking temperature; nor was there a baking time.
