Keebler Cookies – Pitter Patter Cookies

Posted in Cookies

Hey everyone! If you don’t live in the US you may not be familiar with Girl Scout season. I am not convinced that people give up on their fitness resolutions because of lack of commitment, I am convinced they give up because of Girl Scout season.

I don’t know what is so addictive about their cookies, maybe it’s because they are laced with merit badges, dreams, unicorn tears, and sickeningly sweet girls hawking them at every supermarket, big box store, and work place, but I feel like Keebler is trying to get in on this action with the release of their Pitter Patter cookies.

Pitter Patter cookies are most similar to Do-si-dos but are also sort of reminiscent of a Nutter Butter. There is a crunchy cookie exterior with a nice layering of peanut butter in the middle. Is this cookie the answer to my scout cookie crazing when they are out of season?! Maybe.

The cookie portion by itself is good. It has a hint of peanut butter baked in (at least that’s what it tastes like). It’s quite crunchy and somewhat dense, but not to the point where it’s too much cookie. The peanut butter is decent. It has a nice sweetness to it and a very faint salt undertone which keeps the cookie from turning into one sugary peanut butter brick.

The reason why I said maybe on the scout cookie replacement was because they use a different cookie. Girl Scout cookies use an oatmeal cookie for theirs which not only changes the flavor, but the texture. I’m also slightly confused about Keebler’s naming choice for these. Name aside, these cookies are decent. I really with Keebler would have done something slightly different to sent themselves apart from the other peanut butter sandwich cookies, but overall, I’d buy them again.

Texture : 3/5 – The crunchy cookie coupled with the moist peanut butter makes for an enjoyable texture that does not leave you feeling like you just but into the driest desert.

Smell : 4/5 – There is no mistaking that these are all business when it comes to peanut butter.

Appearance : 2.5/5 – The basketweave pattern on the outside of the cookie is alright, but there is nothing overly exciting about the cook of these cookies.

Taste : 3/5 – These cookies were pretty middle of the road. I enjoyed the cookie portion and the peanut butter was decent, but I didn’t find them all that memorable. If you like Nutter Butters and Do-si-dos, you will most likely enjoy these.

    Pitter Patter cookies have actually been on the market before. They were produced back in the 1990’s and at some point they weren’t made any longer. This cookie is very similiar….the old pitter patter didn’t have the design but rather a smooth top and bottom with the center pin hole that had the sliver of peanut butter protruding !

      They were around in the 70s as well. Man are they good. Hope they still are made the same. They are a great cookie.

        Absolutely. I thought maybe I had only dreamt of them.

    These were my favorites back in the 80’s and early 90’s, and I was tragically dismayed when I realized they were no longer available. I stumbled across a small foil pack of these gems last night at my local gas station and had to bite my tongue to refrain from squealing with delight!!! Now I’m happy to see that they’re also available at my local big box store. Heading out now to buy a box or five…

    Recipe changed from years ago! Use to not have the basketweave pattern; had visible nuts; and crunchy oatmeal. Also, the peanut butter filling was sweet.

    Today’s Nutter Butter not as good as the old Pitter Patter.

    Today’s Pitter Patter not as good as old Pitter Patter. Today’s Pitter Patter hard to find, as Nabisco gets more shelf space than Keebler!

    Agreed. Pitter Patter was the best. Where do you find it now?

    I saw them somewhere about a year ago. Bi-Lo? I’ll google and check to see. If ANYONE knows where to find them, let us know!
