These Peanut Butter Patties taste just like the REAL Girl Scout Cookies!

So the marketing guru behind the Girl Scouts’ cookie fund raiser is an amazing mastermind!  I mean…cookies that you can only buy once a year…GENIUS.  Because you know you better stock up during cookie sales time so you have enough to last you all year.  Seriously, my grandmother buys a whole case to freeze so she always has some delicious Girl Scout cookies on hand.

I’m not as proactive as my grandmother and I always find myself wishing for some of the famous Tag-a-longs in January….a time when you can order but still have weeks to wait.  Did I mention that I’m not one for delayed satisfaction?!Copy Cat Girl Scout Tagalong Cookies

So, luckily there’s a copy cat Girl Scout Tagalong cookies recipe that’s so close to the original you won’t be able to tell the difference.  Plus, I get to decide WHAT goes into my cookies…yeah!  Seriously…try these with honey peanut butter….mmmmmmm!

Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 24
  • Peanut Butter Filling:
  •  1 ¼ cup peanut butter
  •  1 cup powder sugar, sifted
  • Shortbread Cookie:
  •  3/4 pound salted butter, room temperature
  •  1 cup sugar
  •  1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  •  3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Chocolate Coating:
  •  1 lb. Milk Chocolate for candy dipping
  1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2.  Start by making the dough for the cookies. Using a paddle attachment on a
  3. mixer, mix together the butter and 1 cup of sugar until they are just
  4. combined. Add the vanilla. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour and salt
  5. if wanted, then add them to the butter-and-sugar mixture. Mix on low speed
  6. until the dough starts to come together. If your dough is a little dry try adding
  7. Tbsp. of water at a time until the dough comes together. Roll dough into a
  8. ball and wrap in plastic, chill for 30 minutes.
  9.  Bake for 14-16 minutes, until the edges begin to brown. Allow to cool room
  10. temperature.
  11. Peanut Butter Filling:
  12.  While Cookies are baking start the peanut butter filling. In a small mixing
  13. bowl, mix together peanut butter and powder sugar until it’s completely
  14. blended and no sugar can be seen.
  15.  On a cooking sheet, lay wax paper or grease the pan with cooking spray.
  16. Place ½ tablespoon of the peanut butter mixture on the prepared pan. I used
  17. a cookie dough scooper and it worked great.
  18.  Once Cookies are cool use a spatula, remove the peanut butter from the pan.
  19. Place 1 ball in the middle of the shortbread cookie and use a butter knife to
  20. spread the peanut butter around the cookie. Repeat with remaining peanut
  21. butter balls and cookies.
  22. Chocolate Coating:
  23.  Melt Chocolate coating according to package. Once melted use a fork
  24. to dip the cookies into the chocolate.
  25.  Allow the excess chocolate to drip off the cookies and transferred to
  26. wax paper to allow cookie coating to harden.
