Smore's Cookies

These cookies should be renamed "Crack Cookies". As soon as these came out of the oven Tom was hovering around the kitchen waiting to steal one. Not only did they smell wonderful while baking, but renaming them Crack Cookies wouldn't be such a bad thing either. I'm not going to admit how many of these I ate. I'll just tell you that I'm sure Santa would really appreciate these next to a tall glass of milk on Christmas Eve.

Ingredients:
    • 1 box honey graham crackers
    • 2 1/2 cups flour
    • 1 tsp. baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 1 stick + 5 1/2 tbs. unsalted butter, at room temperature
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 cup brown sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
    • 1 cup mini-chocolate chips, plus extra for decorating
    • 1 cup mini-marshmallows, plus extra for decorating

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 375. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silpats.
2. Break each graham cracker in half and lay each piece next to each other until the baking sheets are full. Bake for 4 minutes then set aside to cool.
3. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
4. In the bowl of your stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing until fully incorporated. Add the vanilla and then slowly add in the flour mixture.
5. Once combined, add the mini-chocolate chips and marshmallows.
6. Scoop teaspoon sized balls of dough onto the center of the graham crackers. Bake for 5 minutes.
7. Remove from the oven and add more marshmallows and chocolate chips. Return to the oven and cook for 5-7 minutes more.
8. Let cool completely and then break the graham crackers apart.

The original recipes call for little pieces of Hershey bars broken in half, which definitely would have given this more of s'mores look, but I completely forgot about them. The mini-chocolate chips worked just fine though! Now good luck trying not to eat them all!
