smores cookies

 Last week we bid bon voyage to an awesome chick going back out west, and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try a new cookie recipe I came across on Sugar Cooking. So I gathered the ingredients, pre-heated the oven, and dove in!

 The recipe calls for a cup of Graham Cracker crumbs. I chose some cinnamon graham crackers. I think the next time I make these I will up the graham cracker crumbs to give the cookies even more of the smores experience.

 The graham cracker crumbs are mixed with the other dry ingredients.

 The sugars are creamed with the butter.

 The dry and wet are mixed thoroughly, and an entire bag of chocolate chips is folded in to the dough. Then the dough is scooped into tablespoon sized blobs.

Bake the dough for 8 minutes, pull out the cookies and stick some mini marshmallows and pieces of Hershey bar on the top. Bake for 2-3 more minutes, cool. Then....you STUFF!

Want to make them yourself? 
Here's the recipe from Sugar Cooking (who adapted it from Baked Perfection)

Smores Cookies

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 dash of cinnamon
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 3 Hershey bars, chopped

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl combine the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda, salt, and dash of cinnamon. In a second larger bowl beat together the butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Slowly beat in the flour mixture until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheet (I chilled the dough for an hour first; I always do).
  3. Bake for 8 minutes, and remove from the oven. Push 3 to 4 marshmallows and a few pieces of hershey bar into each cookies. Return to the oven and bake an additional 2-3 minutes until fully cooked. Cool cookies on a wire rack.
