I smile so big when I think about this weekend.
We really needed that.
The weather was perfect,
so we soaked up every ounce of sunshine we could.
And as the sun set, we made a fire.
N was begging to roast big marshmallows,
but i didn't have any graham crackers!
Tell me, what good are roasted marshmallows
if you can't make s'mores?
(I may have been a little desperate for chocolate)
So, I created our s'more cookie!
S'more Cookies - Greer Style
What you'll need (I doubled this recipe to make the measurements easier) :
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
(we love dark, you could use milk for a more authentic a'more flavor)
large roasting marshmallows
Cream butter and brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla and mix well.
Sift in dry ingredients and blend. Add chocolate chips.
Bake @ 350* for 7-10 minutes. While cookies are baking,
have a sweet little girl roast some marshmallows. Transfer marshmallow
to the top of the cookie and flatten (these are rrrreeaallyy gooey).
Enjoy with an ice cold bottle of root beer!
P.S. this happy happy girl got to go on a special lunch date with her wonderful daddy!
How was your weekend? Did you create/make something?
