Although I feel like s’mores are a quintessential summer dessert (camping, beach bonfire BBQs), they are also a fantastic winter dessert with their warm, gooey goodness (huddled around a fireplace). So in conclusion, they are a one of my favorite dessert treats any time of year–or day. Here is the recipe to morph them into cookie form.
Original recipe slightly adapted as noted below.
- Makes 12 cookies (or 18 if you’re me).
- ½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- ½ cup confectioners sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 7-oz. jar marshmallow creme
- Cream butter with confectioners and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
- Add salt and vanilla extract and beat to combine. Sift flour and cocoa powder together and whisk to combine.
- Add flour mixture to remaining butter mixture and beat to combine.
- Roll dough into 1½-inch balls and then roll in crushed graham crackers.
- Add 3 tbsp 1% milk, one tbsp at a time until dough has desired consistency.
- If you haven’t already, NOW roll dough into 1½-inch balls and then roll in crushed graham crackers. .
- Use the back of a teaspoon or your thumb and press it slightly into the dough ball to create a shallow well. Refrigerate for 20 minutes before baking.
- Entertain a desperately neglected canine while chilling cookies.
- Remove from refrigerator and bake at 350°F for approximately 7-10 minutes (or up to 25 minutes if your cookie centers are just.not.baking. like mine). Allow to cool completely on wire rack.
- Fill wells with marshmallow creme. To smooth out the top, dip finger in warm water and lightly rub tops until marshmallow creme is nice and smooth.
- Eat one right away just to be sure they are acceptable before the final step.
- Place marshmallow crème-filled cookies under the broiler for 30-60 seconds for roasted marshmallow appearance; alternately, use a handheld flame torch to finish the tops.
The exact post for her s’more cookies is here but I highly recommend getting lost in her blog for everything delicious and decadent, from blackberry prosecco popsicles to cheesecake-stuffed chocolate-covered strawberries.
I’ll be back soon with more sweets from the kitchen. I just love trying amazing recipes! If I wasn’t the messiest baker ever, I’d be tempted to have a little masterpiece bakery of my own.
Have you tried anything new lately? Anyone else bitten by the baking bug lately?
