These Homemade Tagalongs are a DIY version of the classic Girl Scout cookie! Also known as Peanut Butter Patties, this crispy cookies are topped with a layer of PB and coated in smooth chocolate. Simple to make, a crowd-pleasing flavor combination, and totally vegan!
Are Peanut Butter Patties the same as Tagalongs?
Yes, Tagalongs and Peanut Butter Patties are essentially the same cookie. As discussed in the Samoa post, Girl Scouts of America use two bakeries to produce their cookies, which means that while some retain the same name (like Thin Mints) others are sold with slightly different titles.
What is in a Tagalong cookie?
- All purpose flour
- Baking soda
- Refined coconut oil
- Creamy peanut butter
- Non-dairy milk
- Chocolate (for topping)
What do Tagalongs taste like?
Tagalongs taste like a bit Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, in cookie form. Using coconut oil in the cookie base helps maintain a very crispy texture once baked. It is important to use refined oil, as this will not lend a “coconut-y” taste to the final product.
Peanut butter is added to the cookie dough itself and as a topping, so this is a great recipe for PB lovers. I prefer dark chocolate to milk, but feel free to substitute your favorite variety here. If you are vegan, be sure to double check that the chocolate you use for topping does not contain milk solids.
