I want to apologize to anyone that doesn’t know what a Tagalong is. It is the best Girl Scout cookie in the whole lot. A cookie bottom that is topped with a mount of peanut butter and then covered in a milk chocolate layer of goodness. My granddaughter is a scout this year and I confess, I made sure to have enough to last until next year. I love these tagalongs almost as much as the thin mint wafer cookies they sell. But I digress. This creamy and light peanut butter cheesecake filling sits on an oreo cookie crust. The broken tagalongs are mixed into the filling. Shaved chocolate and left oreo cookie crumbs are then sprinkled on top to complete this confection. There is nothing better if you want a lightly flavored peanut butter and chocolate treat to satisfy that urge. Enjoy. Instead of premade crust substitute my No Bake Oreo Cookie Crust.
