Want S'more?

Apparently, you guys like it better when I post my sweets, baked goods, for my previous post about Philip's nachos seems to have gone unnoticed! That's okay...I'll give you cookies! When I was on my internal medicine month in January, I tried to take a treat every time we were on call. I also tried to make new recipes often. One time I decided to try this recipe from Oatmeal Cookie Guy as I had some marshmallows sitting in my baking Rubbermaid, waiting to be used! These are SO good! Maybe freezing the marshmallows helps. I don't know. All I can say is that the next time we were on call I offered a choice to my resident as to what I'd bring. She didn't know but said, "Those cookies you brought last time were really good." Now, I admit, I didn't take those cookies again just because I wanted to make something different (that is coming to a post near you soon!); however, it shows just how good these cookies are that she would request them again! Thanks OCG!S'Mores Oatmeal Cookies from Oatmeal CookieBlog
2 sticks butter
2 cups brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon (T) vanilla
2 cups finely ground graham crackers
1 1/2 cups flour
1 T cinnamon (yes!!!)
1/2 teaspoon (t) salt
1/2 t baking soda
2 cups chocolate chips
2 cups frozen mini marshmallows

Cream together the butter and brown and white sugar. In a small bowl, combine the vanilla and eggs. Whisk together the wet ingredients and add to the creamables. Mix together until smooth. In another large mixing bowl, add the graham crackers, flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda. Using a spatula, fold together until evenly distributed. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture. Mix until evenly combined. Preheat oven to 350º. Shape dough into balls--about 2 tablespoons each. Place dough balls about 2 inches apart on baking stone or cookie sheet. Bake at 350º for 10 minutes. (Be very careful not to overbake them.) If the cookies feel too underdone when you remove them from the oven, let them set on the cookie sheets for two to three additional minutes. Then place cookies on wire racks to cool.

Yum to OCG's S'mores cookies and great job. They look delish!

Jane said...

Oh these look great!
And you just gave me a good tip.
Tonight I made rocky road cookies & they had marshmellows in them.
But it was like they disappeared when I baked them.
If I make these rocky road cookies again, I will try freezing the marshmellows instead.
Thanks!
