Girl Scout Tagalongs Ingredients

Cookie Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream[2]
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract[3]

  • 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract[3]
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips[4]

Girl Scout Tagalongs Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, sift the flour and salt together. Stir it gradually into the butter mixture.
  4. Add the vanilla and cream and mix together until incorporated well.[2]
  5. Take tablespoons of dough and flatten them into round cookies about 1/4-inch thick. Place the rounds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  6. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes, until the cookies' edges are lightly browned.
  7. Right after taking cookies out of the oven, use a small spoon to make a depression in the center of each cookie round.
  8. Cool on the baking sheet for several minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
  9. In a small bowl, microwave-safe bowl, mix together the peanut butter, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla.
  10. Heat the mixture in short, 30-second intervals and stir it frequently until it's extremely soft.
  11. Transfer the filling to a plastic bag with the tip cut off and pipe the filling into each cookie's "dip" that you created with a spoon earlier.
  12. Chill the cookies for 30 minutes.[3]
  13. Place the chocolate in a microwave-save bowl and microwave at 30-second intervals, mixing well.
  14. Coat your chilled cookies in the chocolate and lift the cookies out with a fork.
  15. Place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and let set.[4]

Comments

  • If you'd prefer, you can roll out the dough and use a cookie cutter instead of flattening tablespoons of dough on the baking sheet.
  • Taste the peanut butter filling before applying to the cookies. If you feel that it's too sweet, add a pinch of salt. If it's not sweet enough, add some more confectioners' sugar.
  • Make the chocolate on your cookies set faster by popping them in the freezer.[3]
