Girl Scout Tagalong cookies! The cookie part is so rich and buttery. Straight out of the oven, the middles are pressed down with your thumb to make room for the peanut butter filling, and after freezing them to harden the peanut butter, they are dipped in chocolate. Here they are in the filling stage:
In the above picture, the completely chocolate cookies are how it's supposed to be done....and on the left are drizzled lazy versions. The white chocolate ones were for my dad, who can't eat chocolate. I've never had bought versions of these cookies, so I don't have anything to compare them to. But I can say that the homemade versions are quite....delectable. And I would be very surprised if the bought counterparts tasted better than mine. Recipe from Baking Bites.
I had some more photo studio fun with picture 1B and picture 2!
I had (as the recipe hinted I would) some extra peanut butter filling from the Tagalongs, so I made (at the cookie recipe's suggestion) some peanut butter cups! They took forever because of all the chilling stages, first you pour some chocolate in and brush (yeah, with a mini paintbrush) up the sides of the cup wrappers with chocolate to create the shell, and refrigerate them until hardened. Then you fill them with the peanut butter mixture and chill, and then pour the top chocolate layer on. But it was worth...tediously...painting with chocolate. Mm, so rich and delicious. Recipe.
