I almost missed out on ordering Girl Scout cookies this year, but then my neighbor and her daughter swooped in at the 11th hour to save me!  I can’t go a year without those colorful little boxes.  I know they are over priced and that each box barely contains enough for one person, but I really love them.

Tagalongs, Samoas, Lemon Creams, Do Si Do’s, Thin Mints….I bought them all.  Mainly because I can’t decide which I like the most.  Plus, each member of my family has a different favorite.  That means we HAVE to buy several boxes of each flavor.

A few years ago my daughter sold Girl Scout Cookies.  That was the year we had cookies in our freezer until July.  My daughter got her “prize” for selling a boat load of cookies and my cravings were satisfied for months.  It may have been a bit excessive.

I feel like a dog waiting for the mailman, I’m totally ready to pounce on my little neighbor girl when she comes to deliver my beloved cookies!  I’ll scoop up my boxes and tear into it with an unabashed hunger!  My only problem will be which box to dive into first?

Since my hands are empty (no little cookie boxes), I had to bide my time by making my own Girl Scout inspired baked goods.  Last year I satisfied myself with Samoa Popcorn and Samoa Biscotti.  This year I made Samoa Cinnamon Rolls (coming soon) and these Tagalong Whoopie Pies!  They completely satisfied my craving!  The chocolate and vanilla cakes with the peanut butter filling were just what I needed!  All the Tagalong flavor right there in soft, two-toned cakes!

  1. You know I never get any Girl Scout cookies? Last year a reader mailed me some so I could get my fix. Add this to the list of reasons I need to move. And also to the list of reasons I need to make these whoopie pies! These are awesome Tanya!!!

  2. I still have GS cookies in my freezer from 2 years ago when Jordan sold them. She needed to get to the next prize level, lol. We didn’t even have anyone come by this year, but we’ll probably go to a site sale for her old troop, not that I need anymore, ha! These are amazing Tanya! Pinned!

    • So you know exactly what I’m talking about-darn prizes! I wish I had cookies in my freezer. Your self control is amazing!

  3. These are some beautiful tagalongs!!!

    • A giant YUM it is then! Thanks Pamela!

  6. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous! I bet these taste better than the actual Tagalong cookies!

  7. You’re hilarious, Tanya! These are absolutely gorgeous! May I get a little too excited when baked goods are good and puffy. (It may have to do with when I moved to a higher elevation, I had to change all of my old recipes from when I baked at a lower elevation… it was only 1,500 ft difference. But a huge difference in my oven.) I’m loving these all together!

  8. These are the perfect size – and of course the perfect kind! Girl Scout flavors are the best – Yours turned out wonderfully!

    • I can’t wait for my cookies! Thank you Kelli!

  11. What a fantastic idea for whoopie pies!! Whoopie pies are my favorite and tagalongs are my favorite girl scout cookie…a match made in heaven to combine the two!!

  12. I love love love your whoopie pie recipes, Tanya! We always order from our girls and I’m pretty sure we still have a few boxes left from last year right now….ha! Oh well. You never know when you’ll need a GS cookie fix!

  13. I still haven’t had any Girl Scout cookies this year! I’ll have to make these to satisfy me until I can track some down!

    • I can’t wait for my cookies!!! This certain made up for the wait!
