MMMMM...... That's the best word to describe these cookies. I've seen these around in a few places in the blogging world, and decided to give them a try this past weekend. So glad I did! They truly taste like s'mores, but in a cookie form that's easy to serve year around & without a campfire. They flatten out a lot in the oven, so don't flatten them at all prior to baking. And while they are flat, they are still slightly chewy.
S'MORES COOKIES (Adapted from SugarCooking)
Makes approximately 5 dozen cookies
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup graham cracker crumbs (approximately 8 full graham crackers crushed)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
4 Hershey bars, chopped
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large 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. Add baking soda. Slowly beat in the flour and graham cracker crumbs until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 5-6 minutes, and remove from the oven. Push 3 to 4 marshmallows into each cookies. Return to the oven and bake an additional 2 minutes until fully cooked. Remove from oven & add 3-4 pieces of Hershey bar immediately. Cool cookies on a wire rack.
Note: Original recipe recommended cooking approximately 8 minutes initially, with an additional 2-3 minutes after adding marshmallows. However, I found that my oven needed much less time than recommended. Also, the original recipe added the chocolate pieces with the marshmallows, but I liked them to retain their shape a little more, so I added them at the very end.
