S'mores Cookies



It's not a secret that I love Martha Stewart or her monthly Everyday Food publication. There are seriously countless recipes that I've taken from that handy little book and each time, with great success. They are designed to be helpful, and simple, generally using ingredients that you've already got in your kitchen.



These cookies are no different. My sister made them first and had such a great time making them for a work potluck, where they earned her rave reviews. She's since made them a second time, and now I'm giving them a shot too.

I'm making them this time with store-bought marshmallows, I don't have time this weekend to make my own, which sucks, because homemade ones are soooo much better!

Also, the recipe calls for semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, but my sister and I both used milk chocolate so they'd be just like real s'mores.

Next time I will make them smaller. I got 27, but I think it should be cookie, chocolate and marshmallow in each bite, for me these were too much cookie.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup AP flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
8 oz. bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, cut into 30 squares
15 large marshmallows, halved horizontally

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, pulse oats until finely ground. Add flours, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt; pulse to combine. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, scraping down sides of bowl. With the mixer on low, beat in flour mixture just until combined.

Drop by tablespoons, 1 inch apart onto two baking sheets. Top each with a chocolate square.



Bake until lightly golden, 11 to 13 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Remove sheets from oven; heat broiler. Top each cookie with a marshmallow. One sheet at a time, broil until marshmallows are lightly browned, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool.

Makes about 30 cookies.
