Girl Scout Cookies - Tagalongs


Cooking Time

25-35 min

Yields

36 cookies

Ingredients

Shortbread cookies:

Peanut Butter Filling:
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (I make my own cashew butter, here)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ¼ cup confectioner’s Swerve Sweetener
Chocolate Coating:

Directions


Shortbread Cookies
  1. Preheat oven to 300F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, Swerve, baking powder and salt. Add egg, butter and vanilla extract until well combined and dough comes together.
  3. Turn dough out onto a large piece of parchment and pat into a disc. Top with another piece of parchment and roll out to ¼ inch thickness. Use a 2 inch round cookie cutter to cut out as many circles as possible.
  4. Lift circles carefully with a sharp knife or offset spatula and transfer to prepared baking sheets. Gather and reroll dough until no more circles can be cut out. You should get about 36 cookies.
  5. Bake 25 to 35 minutes, until cookies are just browning around edges and firm to the touch. Remove and let cool completely.
Peanut Butter Filling
  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt peanut butter and butter together on high in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until smooth. Whisk in powdered Swerve until smooth.
  2. Spread about one to two teaspoons of peanut butter filling onto the top of each cookie and place on cookie sheets. Freeze cookies until firm.
Chocolate Coating
  1. Set a heat-proof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. Add chopped chocolate and butter and stir until melted and smooth.
  2. Working with one frozen cookie at a time, add to melted chocolate and toss gently with a fork to coat. Tap fork firmly against the side of the bowl to remove as much excess chocolate as possible and transfer cookie to a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet or platter.
  3. Repeat with remaining cookies. Try to keep most of them in the freezer as much as possible so that they don’t thaw before being dipped.

Notes


Just wow!  Another Girl Scout cookie that you will find not only tastes MUCH better than the "real" thing, but not full of any harmful ingredients like the original.


To your health! :)
