And to celebrate...
Close... but try again.
How about... Campfire Cookies!?
Feel like a S'more but don't have a campfire? Make some cookies!
Okay. That was cheesy. But these really do taste like s'mores.
While procrastinating for finals, instead of times when I should have been studying, I bookmarked cookie recipes. Yes, I know... but I did.
Anyways, I ran into these cookies, courtesy of Martha Stewart, and I HAD to try them.
So I did.
The best part about it all... they look like they would take forever to make.. but they are super easy!
Here's the recipe! And happy baking!
1/2 cup oats
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
About 4-5 Hershey bars
About 25 large marshmallows, halved
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a food processor, pulse oats until finely ground.
Add flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; pulse to combine.
In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy; add egg.
Beat in flour mixture on low until combined.
Form dough into 1 inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Place a piece of chocolate on top of each cookie and bake for about 8 minutes.
Take out of oven, place marshmallow half on top of chocolate, and bake for 1 minute (until marshmallow gets gooey).
Cool on cookie rack.
Makes about 50 cookies.
Tip: I added 2 graham crackers in the cookie dough mixture, don't know if it changes much, but I think it made the cookie more "graham-crackery".
Also, for a healthier option, you can substitute 1 cup of the all-purpose flour for whole wheat.
One last thing... my sister suggests microwaving the cookie for about 15 seconds. Mmmm :)
