I have a friend who shares my love for these cookies. We were both at Dairy Queen about every other day when they had the Tagalong Blizzard. It wasn't pretty...but it was delicious. She sent me this recipe for Tagalongs that you can make at home. I was a bit skeptical that they would be as good, but I have to say I was impressed. These were great the first day, even better the second day, and I nearly made more when they were finished off on the third day. Seriously, they are that addictive!
2 sticks unsalted butter, room temp
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp kosher salt
3 cups flour (take out 6 Tbl if using white whole wheat like I did)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Chocolate candy coating
- Cream together butter and sugar. Beat until smooth. Add in the egg. Add vanilla and beat until smooth.
- With mixer on low, add in salt and flour.
- Shape the dough into a long cylinder, about 2-3 inches in diameter. Wrap in waxed paper and freeze for at least 25 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350*
- Slice the dough into thin disks and place on baking sheets, about a half inch apart. They don't spread much while baking.
- Once you have made about 30 cookies (or you could make them all---like I said they are amazing!) wrap up the rest of the cookie dough and freeze for another time.
- Bake the cookies 8 minutes or until just starting to set.
- Place on a cooling rack and cool completely.
- Mix together the peanut butter and powdered sugar. Form into small disks and press onto the cookies. I coated my hands with powdered sugar for this step, because it was a little sticky!
- Melt the chocolate and coat the cookies. Let set before enjoying.
