S'mores Cookies

I found a new reason to bake this week! I found the cutest, littlest, tiniest marshmallows at a small Mennonite grocery store near my work. I saw those and the wheels in the brain started turning!

Also, did you know that this week is "Rehabilitation Awareness Week"? Yeah, didn't think so. But as a physical therapist assistant, it was a great excuse to make these yummy S'mores Cookies for the nurses and support staff at my work. They were a hit!

This recipe is all over the internet, but I adapted this recipe from Baked Perfection.

S'mores Cookies

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
2 packages of 8 fun size Hershey bars

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 4 minutes, and remove from the oven. Push marshmallows and a section of Hershey bar into each cookies. Return to the oven and bake an additional 4 minutes until fully cooked. Cool cookies on a wire rack.

Makes approximately 4 dozen cookies.

Note: I doubled this recipe with great results. Also, the dough looked a little wet to me, so I added some wheat flour (maybe 1 cup), little by little, until the dough was more "stiff". I also refrigerated the dough for about 30 minutes before I spooned the dough onto the cookie sheet.
