Despite my best efforts to avoid the evil Girl Scout army this year, I ended up with a couple boxes of Tagalongs hanging out in the pantry anyway. I hadn’t opened them yet because… well, I know what happens when I open a box of Girl Scout cookies.
Those “servings” on the side of the box? Lies.
So I was left with a problem to solve: how do I open the box of cookies without immediately inhaling all of the contents and collapsing into a pile of self-loathing on the floor?
My solution? Chop up all the cookies and divide them between another bite-sized treat… Thus, the mini Tagalong cheesecake was born. In the end, you really just end up eating a bunch of delicious cheesecake bites filled with Girl Scout cookies. Sigh, it's the thought that counts.
Mini Tagalong Cheesecakes
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Yield: 21 cheesecakes
*For the "crust" you can use a cookie of your choice. I used a second box of Tagalongs for the first 16 and then used Oreos as needed for the rest.
**You could use 1.5 to 2 cups of any mix-ins for these cheesecakes -- chopped peanut butter cups or chocolate/peanut butter chips would also be great.
