For NFL Super Wildcard weekend, I felt a big time cookie was needed. I saw some marshmallows in my cabinet and thought smores cookies would work. I used a basic chocolate chip cookie dough base. To one half I added cocoa and graham cracker crumbs to the other. And I topped them with marshmallow halves. I suppose I could have just made it all graham cracker or all chocolate for the base, but would they still be a “super” cookie? Probably, but I love to take things up a notch.
Remember to scoop your flour from your flour bag into measuring cup so you get the correct amount. I did not chill this batch and they spread out quite a bit, so next time I will chill them to help prevent that. Also preheat the oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking so the oven cycles to the right temp.
And one last thing – Go Bills.
