You know you’ll want s’more…

 

A couple weeks ago, Luke’s cousin and his family drove down from Idaho for a visit, and of course, Disneyland. Will has two kids, 7 and 4. It was so much fun meeting Will and his family, and listening to the remembered stories they shared. Luke hadn’t seen his cousin, Will, in decades.

In fact, the last Luke and his brother had spent time with Will was a road trip, when Will was 12-years-old. They were all heading to Luke’s aunt’s house (Will’s grandma). It was the typical kids stuff on the trip–the picky eater stopping at dive diners on the road, and having to be convinced it was the only food for miles and miles. The highlight of the trip was when Luke and his older brother let Will drive on the open roads of Kansas, with a promise of silence. Of course, the first thing out of Will’s mouth when they arrived… “They let me DRIVE!”

There were loads of laughs and plenty of great food. All us local family’s brought tasty dishes. I took my Spinach, Strawberry & Pine Nuts Salad with Strawberry-Jalapeño Vinaigrette, and I was also in charge of cookies. My thoughts turned to the flavors of summer, bright refreshing citrus and one of my childhood favorites, S’mores. (My sister and I used to stick a marshmallow on the end of a fork and toast it over the electric stovetop burner, to make these yummy treats at home. Mmm…so good. LOL)

I decided to make Lemon Ricotta Cookies, S’mores Cookies, and good old-fashioned Chocolate Chip Cookies. Nobody could walk by the cookie display without grabbing at least one, if not more.

Today, I’m sharing my recipe for S’mores Cookies. I know you will love them, because one isn’t enough!

S’mores Cookies Recipe

Ingredients:

All-purpose Flour, Granulated Sugar, light Brown Sugar, Butter, Graham Crackers, Eggs, Vanilla Extract, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, Salt, Marshmallows, Chocolate Candies.

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper.

  • Grind or Crush Graham Crackers into fine crumbs. (Start with one package,  8 rectangles. You may need a few more).
  • Unwrap and / or break Chocolate Candies, if needed.
  • In a bowl, add Flour, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, and Salt. Whisk to mix well.
  • In a large bowl, or stand mixer, cream softened Butter, Granulated Sugar, and Brown Sugar.
  • Add 3/4 Cup fine Graham Cracker crumbs, mix well.
  • Crack Eggs open and add one at a time, stirring slightly after each.
  • Pour in Vanilla Extract, and mix.
  • Add Flour mixture a little at a time, and mix until combined.
  • Spoon out about 1-1/2 to 2 Tablespoons of dough. Roll into a ball.
  • Roll the dough ball in the remaining graham cracker crumbs, until lightly coated.
  • Place coated cookie dough on prepared baking sheet, 1 to 1-1/2 inches apart.
  • Bake ONE sheet at a time!
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, until cookies are just starting to crack a bit. They should still be soft.

  • While the cookies are baking, cut Marshmallows in half using kitchen shears. You will need one half per cookie.
  • When cookies come out of the oven, you will need to work fast.

  • Turn off the oven, and set it to Broil, make sure the oven rack is close, but not too close.
  • Top each cookie with marshmallow, cut-side down.
  • Place the marshmallow-topped cookies under the broiler. WATCH carefully. Let the marshmallows toast to golden brown.
  • Take the cookies out of the oven, and IMMEDIATELY push chocolate candy into the center of the hot toasted marshmallow.
  • Switch oven back to Bake, and repeat with the next cookie sheet.
  • Allow cookies to cool, and chocolate candy to set-up again on wire racks.

 

Will’s 4-year-old daughter, Abigail, LOVED these S’mores Cookies! Luke’s brother snapped this photo after all the kids and their parents returned from spending a little time at the beach. Isn’t it a great shot? He even caught cookie crumbs in Abigail’s teeth. LOL

Embarrassing Moments of a Naïve Child Grown…

I live in the house in which I grew up. So, when we had the flood at Christmastime it forced me to empty my mother’s hutch in the dining room. My mother used every possible nook and cranny of that hutch for not only china, but also little bits of memorabilia—including some papers that we found shoved behind the drawers. We were in such a rush trying get things moved out of the area for repairs that we just placed everything into boxes and did not look at stuff too closely  (that project would come later).

Fast forward to months later as I was cleaning and refilling the hutch. I found a treasure that immediately made me blush, laugh so hard I had tears streaming down my face, and wonder just how on earth I survived and managed to raise a family—my Pre-Test For Sex Education!

I am sure my mother was watching from heaven and getting a good laugh herself. She knew she had saved that test for a good reason. Rory and Luke completely enjoyed my naïveté, and I decided it would share it with you.

Believe me, I did finally figure it out! Obviously, I had a one-time spur of dyslexia and switched my answers for male and female…Oh, Lordy…

It just goes to show you how very different life was then. Children were allowed to be children. They did not have sex and violence stuffed down their throats at every turn of the TV dial (and yes, I do mean turn, we did not have a remote for the TV yet), flip of a magazine page, and graphic video gaming was not an option. Times were simpler and in some ways maybe better, but finding this treasure brought back a piece of that time, and we are all thankful for it.

Have you had something from your childhood crop up and make you laugh? Write a post and link it to this one, or tell me about it in a comment.
