We’re still celebrating the anniversary of the Girl Scouts–and especially how we get guilted into buying their cookies every year! There is no escaping those adorable little Girl Scouts knocking on your door, or their parents passing around the cookie order sheet at the office. You know you have to buy them–and then you have to pretend that you’re going to avoid eating an entire box. Hey, truth be told, most everyone enjoys a good Girl Scout cookie and even anticipates that special time of year when they are finally able to order them. Everyone has a favorite Girl Scout cookie. Beyond the feeling of contributing to your community in a small way by purchasing them, they are ridiculously delicious.
We’ve been fooling around with ways to even try improving on the famed Girl Scouts cookies–and here’s a terrific recipe for using Tagalongs to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. So, buy those cookies, make something outrageously yummy, and don’t forget to share. It’s the Girl Scout spirit!
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Set Time: 4 hours
Total Time: 4 hours, 25 minutes
- 1-1/3 cups Tagalongs®/, crushed
- 5 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 package (3-1/2 ounce) vanilla pudding
- 1-1/2 cups milk
- 1/3 cup peanut butter, creamy or crunchy
Early in the day combine crumbs and butter. Press into a 9-inch pie plate. Combine pudding and milk. Stir in peanut butter. Pour into pie shell. Keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Tagalongs® Girl Scout Cookies are a regular cookie with soft Peanut Butter and coated with chocolate that comes in a 7 ounce box
Once your Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie ready, it is time to test it out on your family and friends. One suggestion is to throw a Girl Scout recipe party, where everyone brings a desert that they have created out of Girl Scout cookies. Whether you are a troop leader, have a little Girl Scout of your own or just love desert; this is a great way to be creative and explore familiar tastes in a new way.
