Everyone loves s’more I think. My sister posted a recipe to Facebook for s’more cookies but they were a combination of chocolate chip cookies, ground up graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows. I wasn’t keen on the chocolate chip cookie part. The dough for chocolate chip cookies is very distinct and I didn’t think would really taste like true s’mores. So I decided to cobble together this recipe to see if I couldn’t come up with something more to my liking. Now I do have recipes for homemade marshmallow, one of which I’ve already posted. But for this, because I’m using plain marshmallow I just went with store bought. I just made sure to by good quality ones. For the chocolate part, use the type you like best; dark, semi-sweet, etc. I’d say enjoy but I’ll wait to see how they turn out first and will post either an update or a comment.
Graham Cracker Cookies
- 2 cups graham or whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 3/4 Tsp baking powder*
- 1/2 Tsp baking soda
- 1/2 Tsp kosher salt
- 1/8 Tsp ground cinnamon
- 6 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into 1/4″ cubes and chilled
- 2 1/4 oz molasses
- 1 1/2 oz whole milk
- 1 Tsp real vanilla extract
In a food processor, I like my Cuisinart Food Processor, combine the flours, sugar, baking powder and soda, and salt. Pulse to combine. Add in the chilled butter and pulse until the mixture looks like cornmeal. Add the molasses, milk and vanilla. Process until the dough forms a ball, about a minute.
Form the dough into a log roughly 1 1/2 inches. I press it flat on all 4 sides. Chill for at least 30 minutes, longer if you can.
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the dough into 1/4″ slices, poke the tops with a fork and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, the edges should turn brown. OK browner than the dough was when you started. Leave on the cookie sheet and allow to cool.
*OK I just learned that there are 2 types of baking powder. It’s recommended to get aluminum-free if possible. Who knew?
- 12 oz good chocolate, chopped or chips
- 1 package mini marshmallows
Pre-heat your oven on the broiler setting and put the rack in the middle.
Microwave the chocolate in a small bowl in 15 seconds intervels, stirring each time, until melted and smooth.
With a spatula smear the top of a cookie and place the mini-marshmallows on top. The chocolate will act as a glue. Do one and a time and nuke the chocolate if it starts to get stiff for another 15 seconds. When they’re all done pop them in the oven and WATCH THEM. It takes less than a minute for them to brown.
