Smore Cookies
Time: about 90 minutes
Yield: 48 cookies
Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up!
1 package graham crackers (9 full sized graham crackers)
6 T butter, melted
1 T sugar
dash salt
1 C butter, softened
2 C brown sugar
2 eggs
2 T milk
2 t vanilla
1 t baking soda
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
3 1/2 C flour
2 1/2 C milk chocolate chips

24 large marshmallows
4 small 1.55 oz Hershey bars 
 
1. Break the graham cracker crumbs up into pieces. Place them in a small food processor and grind them into crumbs. No food processor? Do not dismay. You can crush your crackers into crumbs by placing them in a gallon sized zip loc bag, sealing the bag securely and then smashing the crumbs with a rolling pin.
 
2. To your crumbs add 6 T melted butter, 1 T sugar, and a dash of salt. Let the food processor grind all of the  ingredients together nicely. Set the crumbly mixture aside.
 
3. Place your softened butter and brown sugar into a large mixing bowl. Beat on medium speed until the ingredients are nicely creamed together, about 2 minutes. 
 
4. Add your eggs, milk and vanilla and mix for another 2 minutes. 
 
5. In a separate bowl combine your baking soda, baking powder, salt and flour. Add it to your creamed mixture and mix until combined. 
Toss in your chocolate chips and mix yet again, just until the chips are evenly distributed.
 
6. Grab your graham cracker crumbs and pour them into the cookie dough. Using a wooden spoon, or your hands :) smash them into the cookie dough. You don't want the graham cracker crumb mixture to be totally lost in the dough, just....well....just smashed into it a bit. Boy, you have really come to an eloquently written blog now haven't you. Fancy lingo just dripping from every corner. :)
 
7. Roll the dough into 2 inch balls, place them on a lightly sprayed cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 6 minutes, or just until the cookies begin to crack.
 
8. While your cookies are in the oven, cut the large marshmallows in half. 
 
9. Press a marshmallow piece into the center of each hot cookie. Return the sheet to the oven and bake for about 1 1/2 more minutes allowing the marshmallows to puff up and get all wonderful and delicious. 
 
10. Remove the sheet from the oven. Let the cookies sit for about 2 minutes, then press one Hershey bar piece into the center of the marshmallow.
 
11. Remove the cookies from the sheet and allow them to finish cooling on a wire rack. 
 
ENJOY!!!!!!
