Taste of Tuesday: Thin Mint Eton Mess from Blue Cake Company

You probably thought that the last of the delightful Girl Scout cookie craze was gone for the year, and that you’d simply have to wait patiently until the next beloved batch came your way in 2017.

And you’d be wrong.

Chef Shuttle is currently the only place in the state where you can still get your cookie fix through the end of June. We’re celebrating this beautiful surplus with our friends at Blue Cake Company, who have created an unbelievable Thin Mint dessert just for you, dear readers: the Thin Mint Eton Mess.

Eton mess is a traditional British dessert made with crushed meringues, whipped cream and fresh fruit. Switching the meringues with crushed Thin Mints adds minty freshness and a hint of chocolate. The following recipe will make three 12-oz. jars or six 8-oz. jars.

The Ingredients:

For the cream layer:

  • 1 box Thin Mints, crushed
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp. powdered sugar

For the preserves layer:

  • 1/2 cup berry preserves (blueberry, raspberry or strawberry)
  • 1-2 tbsp. water or fruity liqueur

For the berries layer:

  • 2 cups diced berries (any combination of strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries)
  • 1-2 tablespoons sugar
  • juice of 1/2 lime


The Instructions:

Whip heavy cream with powdered sugar to medium peaks and fold crushed cookies into whipped cream.

Thin the preserves with 1-2 tablespoons of water or fruity liqueur. Consistency should be loose enough to drizzle — amount of liquid may vary.

Toss mixed berries, sugar and lime juice and let sit for 15 minutes.

For assembly, drizzle the bottom of your jars with preserves. Spoon a layer of fruit over the preserves, then add a thick layer of Thin Mint cream. Repeat twice more to fill the jar. Cover and chill for two hours before serving to allow flavors to meld and cookies to soften.
