I don’t bake cookies that often, but I when I saw this recipe from Pinterest, I knew I had to make them! They were the perfect treat on a summer night, providing all the flavors of a s’more. Sadly, I did not find the marshmallows that were called for in the original recipe. I used mini marshmallows instead and doubled the amount. I highly recommend this recipe. They were soft and melted in my mouth.
Gooey S’mores Cookies
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened 1/2 cup sugar 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 egg 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 1/3 cups flour 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (7 full graham cracker sheets) 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup Mini Hershey’s Kisses (or chocolate chips/chunks) 1 cup Jet Puffed Mallow Bits
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and beat for an additional 2 minutes.
Meanwhile, use a food processor or blender to crush 7 graham cracker sheets into 3/4 cup fine crumbs. In a separate bowl, whisk together the graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking powder, and salt. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and mix on low speed until the dough just comes together. Add the chocolate and marshmallows and stir to combine.
Place 1.5 tablespoon sized scoops of dough onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
Makes 2 dozen cookies.
