It's that time of year again.
When you pass the little girls in their brown outfits, shivering outside storefronts, bright and early on Saturday morning.
I love those little girls and the cookies they are so excited to sell you.
My favorite. The Tagalongs. Or now called Peanut Butter Patties.
This year instead of devouring an entire box in one sitting I decided to get a little creative and use the cookies for a dessert recipe.
It was motivated by finding this little piece of paper:
It was in a pile of old recipes my Mom passed down to me recently. And it was from my days spent as a little girl in a little brown outfits.
And the recipe called for an entire box of my favorites, which I loved.
And it's a SUPER simple recipe, which made it even better.
First you'll need to get a pre-made pie crust.
My better half (our official grocery shopper at the moment) could only find a oreo pie crust, which turned out to be the best addition to the recipe. Have you experienced oreos and peanut butter? Oh, you need to. That's a future recipe post.
Oh, and you'll need a box of instant vanilla pudding (3.4 oz).
In a large bowl, mix together milk (1-1/2 cups) and pudding mix with an electric mixer for 1 minute. Then let it stand for 5 minutes.
Then fold in the cool whip (1 cup)
And the crushed cookies (1 box of peanut butter patties)
Dump that mixture into your pie crust and freeze it overnight.
The next day, set the pie out for 10-15 minutes before serving.
It is delicious! A great use for those extra girl scout cookies you have. And I would recommend going with the oreo crust, scrumptious!!
