Tagalong Bars are a homemade version of the classic Girl Scout Cookie. A buttery shortbread crust with a creamy peanut butter filling, topped with rich chocolate. Some say this recipe is even better than the original Tagalong cookie!

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons milk
