Happy 4th of July! I hope y’all are enjoying the long weekend. I’ve had a fabulous time spending the weekend with friends and family. I move to Houston in 2 days!!! Crazy (I should probably start packing!)
I’ve done my fair share of baking/treat making this weekend, including homemade blueberry pie ice cream and homemade vanilla bean marshmallows. Today I am sharing my recipe for S’more cookies. This is an easy, quick recipe if you’re in the need for a festive dessert later today.
I used my homemade vanilla bean marshmallows for these cookies because we didn’t have any marshmallows in the pantry. Most people would run to the nearest store and buy a package of marshmallows, right? I was too lazy to do that so instead I googled homemade marshmallows and found I had all ingredients on hand. I used Smitten Kitchen’s recipe for springy, fluffy marshmallows. It was easier than I thought, but you do need a candy thermometer. And be forewarned- it will be a sticky mess, especially if you get boiled sugar on your wood floor.
You can certainly make these cookies with store bought marshmallows, though.
2 sticks butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 egg yolks
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose, unbleached flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup chocolate chips
25-30 large marshmallows
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350.
Step 2: In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
Step 3: Add egg yolks, one at a time and mix until well combined.
Step 4: Add vanilla.
Step 5: Add flour, baking soda, baking, powder and salt. Mix thoroughly.
Step 6: Mix in graham cracker crumbs and chocolate chips.
Step 7: Scoop about 1 tbsp cookie dough onto baking sheets.
Step 8: Bake for 10 minutes.
Step 9: Once all of the cookies have been baked, switch oven to broil and increase temperature to 500 degrees.
Step 10: Carefully place 1 marshmallow on top of each cookie. Place in oven for about 1 minute. You want the marshmallow to get toasty and brown, but watch carefully as it goes very quick.
