S’mores cookies

Yields: About 2 dozen cookies


2 cups dark brown sugar

2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature

2 eggs

3 ¼ cup graham cracker crumbs, finely crushed

1 ¾ cup cake flour

1 tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. salt

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 ½ cups mini chocolate chips

1 cup mini marshmallows


Combine the dry ingredients—flour, baking soda and salt—in a bowl. Cream butter and brown sugar on medium in a stand mixer for approximately 4–5 minutes, or until fluffy. Turn mixer to low. Add vanilla and eggs one by one.

Add dry ingredients slowly and mix on low, only until combined. Once combined, add mini chocolate chips and marshmallows and mix by hand until incorporated.

Use an ice cream scooper to scoop onto parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for approximately 15 minutes. Time varies on oven and cookie size. These cookies will look underbaked but are meant to be a bit cake-like. Enjoy!
