Samoa pancakes

Happy Friday!! Yesterday I was off and absolutely enjoyed my day off. I don’t get them a lot but since I’m working the weekend, I get 2 week days off. Since I started working, I savor having days off. They are my time to catch up, do housework, appointments, shopping, and make delicious meals. This morning was no exception. Breakfast was inspired by Girl Scout cookies. Ever since I was little Samoa cookies (or for the silly people out there: Caramel Delights) have been my favorite. However they are not quite a breakfast food. Problem solved!
