I'll be posting a recipe or two from this cookbook, so be on the lookout this week.

Now, here's a new recipe. My daughter found and made them over the weekend....yummy!  As a long-time Girl Scout leader, I've had my share of s'mores. These are very similar!




S’more Cookies

Ingredients:

·                     1/2 cup butter, room temperature
·                     1/4 cup brown sugar
·                     1/2 cup sugar
·                     1 large egg
·                     1 tsp vanilla extract
·                     1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
·                     3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
·                     1 tsp baking powder
·                     1/4 tsp salt
·                     2 king-sized milk chocolate bars (e.g. Hershey’s)
·                     1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme/fluff (not melted marshmallows)

Directions:

1.            Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
2.            In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix at a low speed until combined.
3.            Divide dough in half and press half of dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan. Place chocolate bars over dough. 2 king-sized Hershey’s bars should fit perfectly side by side, but break the chocolate (if necessary) to get it to fit in a single layer no more than 1/4 inch thick. Spread chocolate with marshmallow creme or fluff. Place remaining dough in a single layer on top of the fluff (most easily achieved by flattening the dough into small shingles and laying them together).
4.            Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting into bars.

Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. -Calvin Coolidge

S'mores are not something we actually do or have in Australia. They do look YUM though.
