S'more Cookies


Did you know the Girl Scouts of America gets credit for inventing s'mores? Funny how the seemingly innocent Girl Scouts are accountable for these calorie-bombs...or maybe it's just me, but I do find this nugget of information a tad bit amusing.



ANYWAY, the brother was going on and on about marshmallow cookies, so I thought, why not make a s'more cookie? Who has time to roast marshmallows one-by-one around a campfire nowadays? Rather, who has time/space/energy for a campfire??? Certainly not I.


These cookies came out a bit thick, because I rolled the dough into thick discs so the marshmallows would have space to set. The marshmallows also hardened after cooling, so I would recommend eating it straight out of the oven. Big, warm cookies beat numerous mini room-temperature cookies anytime.



What you will need:
makes 50 mini cookies

a three-quarter cup of unsalted butter, softened

half a cup of white sugar


half a cup of brown sugar

an egg

a teaspoon of vanilla extract

one and one-quarter cups of all-purpose flour

a cup of digestive biscuit crumbs
(I used 10 McVite's biscuits)

a pinch of salt

half a teaspoon of baking soda

as many semi-sweet chocolate chips as your heart desires


a cup of mini marshmallows
(my grocery store didn't sell these so I chopped up normal pillow-sized marshmallows)



Method:


1. Pre-heat your oven to 200°C.

2. Cream together the butter and sugars until fluffy.




3. Mix in the egg and vanilla.

4. Add flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda and salt, combining until smooth.




5. Fold in the chocolate chips until well combined.







6. Pinch the dough and mold it onto cookie sheet.







7. Bake for 5-6 minutes. Remove and quickly press marshmallows into cookies. Return to oven and cook until done, about 3 minutes.







Look at those beautifully "roasted" marshpillows!!!



8. Enjoy!!!


The brother enjoyed crushing the digestive biscuits!
