Ham: Hey, Smalls, you wanna s’more?
Smalls: Some more of what?
Ham: No, do you wanna s’more?
Smalls: I haven’t had anything yet, so how can I have some more of nothing?
Ham:You’re killing me Smalls!

But enough of that…sorry I haven’t posted lately I’ve been pretty busy, but a dear friend on the track team just turned 21, so of course a sweet treat was in order! I had found a s’more cookie recipe several weeks ago and had been wanting to try it, and a birthday always deserves a special treat!
I randomly found the recipe off another baking blog (http://www.lovintheoven.com/2009/12/day-7-smores-cookies.html), and it turned out to be really easy! The cookies were gooey and delicious, and I think the birthday girl loved them too.
The dough itself is similar to a regular chocolate chip cookie recipe, only with graham cracker crumbs added. You drop the dough onto cookie sheets and bake about 7-8 minutes, and then push the s’more toppings (mallows and Hershey’s!) into the cookies, and bake a couple more minutes.
I crushed graham crackers when making mine because I didn’t have a box of graham cracker crumbs; I also ran out of Hershey bars (the recipe calls for 2, but I would suggest buying at least 3), so the last batch I chopped up a few Kit-Kat bars to put in the cookies, and they were just as yummy as the original!
And remember, eat more cookies!!
