The Perfect S’more Cookie!!!!
Whoa….. did I say perfect?
I made these cookies just a few days ago and have been dying to share them with you! They are that good!
With all this talk about grilling out and BBQ’s and summer fun I have had S’mores on my mind. They are the perfect treat anytime, but there is just something about cooking outdoors that drives you to want a S’more! Because of this I knew I wanted to include a fun and unique S’more treat as part of this week’s barbecue round up. I was immediately drawn to a cookie but as to what type of cookie was the question.
A chocolate chip cookie base, a chocolate cookie base, chop the S’more ingredients and throw them in or leave them whole and sandwich the cookie dough around them. There were so many ways I could go with this.
I was worried about the texture of whole (or broken) graham crackers would have on the overall cookie. I went back and forth. Back and forth.
And then I saw it! Confessions of a Cookbook Queen did it right- a S’more cookie with grahmn cracker crumbs mixed into the dough! Genius! Why didn’t I think of that!
This cookie has the perfect S’more flavor: gooey marshmallows, melted chocolate, and that distinct grahmn cracker flavor.
