S'mores Cookies!

Is it summer yet?  As far as I can tell, it definitely is.  What I'm worried about is the fact that people keep telling me that this is the "nice season" here.  90˚ with 91% humidity is not nice.
Anyway, my favorite part about summer is camping.  And I especially like to camp when our meals include more than just rice and oatmeal.

Sometimes when we are feeling extra fancy we pack marshmallows!

The other best part of camping: smelling like smoke for days afterward.
Well, these cookies don't smell like smoke, unless you set your oven on fire while making them - probably should avoid that.

They do taste like s'mores though...take what you can get :)

recipe from Martha Stewart
1/2 c. oats
1 c. all purpose flour
1 c. whole wheat flour
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 egg
8 oz. chocolate
marshmallows, cut in half

1.  Grind oats in food processor.
2.  Add flours, cinnamon, soda, and salt.  Mix together.
3.  Cream butter and brown sugar.  Add egg.  Mix in dry ingredients.
4.  Drop by tablespoons onto two cookie sheets.  Top with chocolate.
5.  Bake at 350˚ for 11-13 minutes (just lightly golden brown), rotating cookie sheets halfway through.

6.  Place halved marshmallows on top.  Place in broiler for about 1 minute.
7.  Cool on wire racks (and try not to burn your tongue on the marshmallow - because I know you're not actually going to wait until they are cool)!

no occasion - Just had some time this afternoon after going to the dentist...guess I felt like I needed something sweet!

Gage said...

They look amazing i want to make them now. Thanks for posting the recipe.

Gage said...

Oh and great pictures. It looks really cool with the picture of each step. I wish every recipe had the picture of each step.

Sarah M. Flinn said...

Gage, you should definitely make them! - they are so good. And I know exactly what you mean about pictures of each step of a recipe. I usually won't even make a recipe if it doesn't have at least one picture.

Katie @ This Chick Cooks said...

Sarah- Those smores cookies look so good! How great that the recipe uses whole wheat flour so you at least feel like you're getting a little bit of wholesomeness. I am going to save this recipe so I can try it sometime. I'd love for you to stop in and show off your cookies today at These Chicks Cooked Recipe Spotlight. Have a blessed day :)

Lisa said...

Your cookies are a s'mores sensation! Thanks for linking this up to Sweets for a Saturday.

Sarah M. Flinn said...

Katie, you can pretend up until the point where you see how much sugar and butter they have! :) But cookies aren't supposed to be good for you anyway! Thanks for inviting me to your link party - there were so many great ideas on your site. Have fun making them - they are great especially for people like me who live in apartment buildings and have no chance for open fires!

Sarah M. Flinn said...

Thanks Lisa! I will definitely be checking back into your site often to find great ideas! Thanks for hosting

Sarah M. Flinn said...
