    Join Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make gourmet Thin Mints, Samoas and Tagalongs. That's right, Claire's making Girl Scout Cookies. Did you know the Girl Scouts started selling cookies back in 1917? But it wasn't until 1951 that the Thin Mint, the cookie most synonymous with the Girl Scouts, was introduced and swept the country like a tidal wave. And now here we are, in the Test Kitchen, watching Claire make them herself. What a time to be alive.

    1. Relaxed Cubing

      My parents: If you can't pronounce an ingredient, it's not healthy. Bon Appétit: hold my sodium stearoyllactylate

    2. Abby Fray

      As a non american I always thought girl scout cookies were made by the girl scouts themselves. My whole life was a lie

    3. Raya Laframboise

      I would love to see goldfish to be done!!

    4. _Tostidoroki_

      "i could do this blindfolded" *video is almost 40 mins long* y e s

    5. I Don't Know Elisa

    6. ansley b

      Claire at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="1387">23:07</a> -- I'm feeling pretty confident😐

    7. Mahendra Fajar

    16. Boblo

      Girl scouts? I don't know. I think it's dangerous to teach young girls self-esteem and leadership skills.

    31. maniiatiicaiilu

      I would love if you could make mantecol, ask Gaby about it, it's delicious

    32. Helene Desmarais

      Claire, I didn't read the 7,425 commentairies so maybe it was said. To clean your microwave; boil water in a bowl and let it steam very well. Come back to clean a few minutes later. No scrubbing, Just wipe/wash it away.

    33. Amy Andrea

      Claire should attempt Cosmic Brownies...someday

    34. Ramona Cottle

      Pls make Teddy Grahams

    35. Kate Andersen

      This is funny, they always throw things at Claire. Sorry Claire

    36. Chloe Green

      I think EVERYONE would die for Claire

    37. ProxUrAimz

      40 min of nonsense and u can't even give a minute to an actual girl scout boo bonappleteeth

    38. Rutuja Kale

      can you make claire make the hello panda biscuits?

    39. Hazel's Magical Kitchen

      You should make McDonald’s french fries next!

    40. Danni Chamberlain

      Can you try making gobstoppers? I don’t know if they are called that in the USA but thats what they are called in Australia.

    41. Asian Muffin

      I think she doesn’t get Girl Scouts because she lives in an apartment?

    42. Omar Villa

      She should make pixie sticks

    43. C M

      Claire, I am addicted to this show! You're so adorable!

    44. Evan G. Harazaki

      I love how Gaby said "You cleaned it!" at the end

    45. YuNg_Eg

      How old is Claire? Just wondering

    46. marieee1394

      When they all get back to the ba kitchen, gourmet makes should go international. Claire should attempt to make favourite treats of different countries. I would like to make the first suggestion for Australia---> Tim Tams please 😄

    47. Angie Vano

      Hey Clair..Microwave Cleaning TIP: put a cup of water (a little lemon juice is optional) in for about 2-3 minutes. Then everything wipes right off!

    48. G r a n t

      I feel like this video is just a constant series of excessive drum solos

    49. Shannon Osborne

      oh no what happened to andy at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="267">4:27</a>?

    50. kendall

      no one: delaney: Okay what about the _____ badge ?

    51. abbilearnsit

      Once we're all free to leave our homes again, can BA please make the Gourmet Makes Museum an actual thing open for guests to visit?

    52. Jenn W

      Best way to clean microwave interior: Half white vinegar, half water in a bowl Microwave 4-5 min to make vinegar steam Wipe!

    53. JesusMySavior

      On some other previous video, I read a comment that said "Delaney looks at everyone like he's in love with them" and now I just can't unsee that. :P

    54. Lisa

      gourmet makes: cosmic brownies. the brownies and frosting may be kinda basic, but those sprinkles have something to them

    55. Aidan Shields

      claire like hates christina lmfao. not actually, but she seemed annoyed by her presence

    56. Julia Martin

      I’m so sad Claire isn’t doing this series anymore

      1. Ardelle Xiu

        Julia Martin would you care to explain?

    57. Rachel Steeves

      I can't get over her haircut!

    58. Mikki Black


    59. Color Me Influenced

      The BA test kitchen isn’t cleaned every day? And, if it is, WHY NOT THE MICROWAVE???

    60. Samantha Johnson

      I was a girlscout and actually did win a TV once for selling most cookies I loved being a scout and even helped younger girls in high school

    61. haley stewart

      You should make chalupas!!!

    62. Bush Cat

      Does anyone have a recipe that's similar to the one they used for the cookie dough here? my little brother has celiac disease and he can't eat girl scout cookies anymore. I would appreciate it if someone knew how I could make him some, I searched it up on yt and wound up here. :)

    63. Ryan Polk

      Am making these during quarantine. Thanks, Claire!

    64. ThatGamerDude9000

      "I can do this blindfolded." Burns the first batch and blames the oven.

    65. Lizzy Smith

      when she redid the cookies everyone made i was like this is VIRGO energy

    66. Love Life

      Can you guys try to recreate a debbie cake? That would be cool

    67. Simon Baldwin

      Please do gourmet Swedish Fish

    68. Sean-Thomas Flynn

    69. Bjørn Nielsen

      grey guse in the fridge lol

    70. Marisa Lunde

      Now do Little Brownie Bakers Girl Scout cookies (aka the better subset of Girl Scout cookies -- no, I'm not willing to debate this. ABC Bakers are inferior).

    71. Mariah
