Smore Cookies Please~

I have been so blessed with walkover treats this summer..from soups to desserts.. I'll post a few.. on a first day..and kept coming~

A special melt-in-your-mouth decadence treat one of our daughter's walked over with..These have become one of my very favorite cookies..although the ones I made.. never ended up looking like hers..Not tasting like hers..
They are so good just made..

She had found them here..

I did see similar recipes elsewhere also..

I'll add the recipe so you can just have to peek here when you are ready..

La Recette

S'mores Cookies
adapted from Make and Bake

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
2 cups miniature chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
2 Hershey bars, chopped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

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.

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 3-4 minutes until fully cooked. Cool cookies on a wire rack.

Makes approximately 4 dozen cookies.

And so I can just look here when I am ready:)

  5. How ingenious!! And how lucky you are to have 'walk over' treats from a special loved one.

    I'm quite sure I'll never see a more beautiful version than these, you've captured them beautifully.

    That breathtaking Magical Monique touch is evident in all that you share with us. Merci, mon ami! xo

  7. Monique, these are absolutely delectable! Thanks for sharing! I am bookmarking this... walkover trests..I like that term.

  8. You are so fortunate in so many have a daughter live so near you must be wonderful. Not to mention the sweet grandchildren visits! Cookies are just frosting on the cake, so to speak!
