If you have been on Pinterest for the past couple of years, you know there has been an explosion of S’mores treats and desserts. And in the past two years, I’ve only tried two recipes. And this is a good thing, because when s’mores enter my house….they don’t get to leave! Muahahahahaaa!
I’ve made these S’mores Cookies twice now, and they last about two days in my house. They are sooooo good! The cinnamon graham cracker adds a bit of a surprise, and once you eat one, well no, you won’t just eat one….so be careful!!
And I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I almost think I would rather have one of these s’mores cookies or s’mores cookie bars better than a regular s’more! My future sister-in-law made these during Christmas, and I knew I had to snag up the recipe, pronto. I asked her where I could find the recipe, and of course she said they were from Pinterest!
And because I cannot deny you of these delicious cookies any longer, here is the recipe, which is originally from Kevin & Amanda.
- ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1⅓ cups all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup cinnamon graham cracker crumbs (7 full graham cracker sheets)
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. kosher salt
- 1 cup Mini Hershey’s Kisses
- 1 cup Jet Puffed Mallow Bits
- Prep ingredients. Crush up graham crackers ( I use a large zip-lock bag and a rubber mallet). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg, and vanilla and beat for about 2 minutes.
- In a separate bowl, combine flour, crushed graham crackers, baking powder and salt. Mix until combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients to sugar mixture until just combined. Add Hershey’s kisses and Mallow Bits and mix together.
- Place by the tablespoon onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
