This is another heavenly cookie from Ashley at Baker by Nature. There are a lot of good cookie recipes out there but I think hers are just better - a little extra goodness. Annie thinks this cookie is one of her very favorites. I made these when Jenna and Meg were here and they loved them. Jenna loved how the marshmallow melts and kind of "candies" around the edge of the cookie. I think the only thing I changed was ... I took the cookie dough ball and put the top of the ball in a bowl of graham cracker crumbs before baking.
Make these soon!!
P.S. One thing that Ashley does that I should do more often and why her cookies always look as amazing as they taste... she puts a few chocolate chips and marshmallows in the top of her cookies before baking. I try to but she intentionally does it and her cookies look so amazing.
S'mores Chocolate Chip Cookies (adapted from Baker by Nature)
2 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs, very finely crushed (I used purchased crumbs)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks (8 oz) butter, at room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup mini marshmallows
2 sheets graham crackers, roughly chopped (about 1/2 cup)
extra graham cracker crumbs for topping before baking
Preheat oven to 375. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or baking mat. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a bowl of stand mixer or a large mixing bowl, add the butter and both sugars and beat on medium speed for 2-3 minutes, or until light and fluffy. Add in vanilla and beat until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Reduce mixer speed and gradually add in the flour mixture. Be sure not to over beat. Turn off mixer and using a sturdy spatula, fold in chocolate chips, marshmallows and roughly chopped graham crackers.
I used a smaller cookie scoop than Ashley. She used 3 Tbsp of dough for her cookies. I like to have more cookies so I used a medium sized cookie scoop. I took the cookie dough ball and pressed the top into a bowl of graham cracker crumbs. Bake cookies for 8 - 12 minutes - depending on the size of the cookie. The edges will be golden but the cookie should still be soft in the middle. I baked mine 8 minutes. Let cookies cool on a baking rack before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
