Well, okay... it's still in the upper 90's here in Houston, but tomorrow's October people! We gotta start celebrating fall some time right? Maybe cooler weather is on it's way!
I tend to think of the seasons in terms of clothing and food.
(What can I say? I love fashion, and I love to eat! ;)
Fall is time for Stews, Chili, Pecan Pie, Heavy Spice Cakes, Hot Cider, Pumpkin Bread....
Oh, and S'MORES!!!
I love, love, LOVE S'mores...
and here's a unique way to enjoy that incredible trifecta of flavors:
You know the drill...
get your marshmallows, chocolate bars & grahams ready...
Mix up your fav Chocolate Chip cookie recipe...
(or use a mix... whatever)
Build your S'more using only 1/4 or 1/2 of the usual amounts.
(Example: I used 2 mini marshmallows, 1 square of a miniature Hershey bar,
& 2 rectangles of a graham.)
Then put a heaping scoop of cookie dough on the top and bottom.
Alright, here's the tricky part. You have to mold the dough around your S'more. Don't worry about the S'more getting messed up, it really doesn't matter just as long as you enclose the cookie dough around the entire thing, forming a big ball.
My mouth is watering just remembering what these tasted like
fresh out of the oven....
Now, I must warn you: These are some BIG cookies! Using the amounts I listed above, mine turned out about 7 inches wide. Sometimes you have to keep adding cookie dough to get it all molded together. You can use less S'more ingredients if you want smaller cookies.
Just be sure to give these babies plenty of room to spread on the cookie sheet!
