S'mores Cookies






S'mores Cookies
Oh my gosh...so I never was a girl scout (got kicked out at a young age) and never got the opportunity to camp out as a child but DAMN...eating this and fabricating memories of eating s'mores by an open fire comes to my daydreaming mind. I will say that my Chris has shown and given me many opportunities in our short time together (so far) and exposing me to the open fire or fireplace s'mores is one of them. When we were really poor we would roast the marshmallows over a candle flame. But back to this recipe. OUCH it is so good... and for me the frozen cookie dough is even better. I have linked the recipe and site here but I am going to put the recipe up too so you don't have to search for it. So if you get the time..make this cookie and take yourself back or in my case make it up; you won't regret it.
S'mores Cookies
2 sticks butter
2 cups brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups finely ground graham crackers
2 cups oatmeal
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups chocolate chips
2 cups frozen mini marshmallows

In your Kitchen Aid or a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and brown and white sugar.
In a small bowl, combine the egg and vanilla. Whisk together the wet ingredients and add to the butter mixture. Mix together until smooth.
In another large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients. Using a spatula, fold together until evenly distributed. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture. Mix until evenly combined.
Preheat oven to 350º.
Shape dough into balls--about 2 tablespoons each.
Place dough balls about 2 inches apart on Silpat- or parchment paper-lined cookie sheets.
Bake at 350º for 10 minutes. (Be very careful not to overbake them.) If the cookies feel too underdone when you remove them from the oven, let them set on the cookie sheets for two to three additional minutes. Then place cookies on wire racks to cool. Or you can eat warm...like the original s'more.
