S'more Sandwich Cookies #FillTheCookieJar

The calendar is telling me that it's the first thursday in June (where did May go?) and that means it's time to #FillTheCookieJar!   This month's theme is Summer, and I had a bit of a hard time getting into the spirit of things.  May was a rainy, rainy month and a few nights we had to put the heat back on.   While I was bundled back into my flannel shirt, all I could think about was a roaring campfire, and making S'mores.  I found this recipe from Abby M on the Taste of Home website.

I made no changes to the ingredients, but I do have issue with most recipes that use "S'mores" in the title.   Melted marshmallows are not the same as toasted marshmallows.  For it to really be a S'more to me, it has to have that toasted (sometimes charred) flavor.   Instead of microwaving the cookies with the marshmallows on top, I placed them back onto the baking sheet and put them under the broiler until they were toasted.   You could also use a kitchen torch.


We totally enjoyed this taste of summer!  Thank you so much to Cynthia at Feeding Big for hosting #FillTheCookieJar! Lots of wonderful, summery recipes being shared this month, go check them out by clicking the links at the bottom of the post  :)

     1/2           cup  packed brown sugar
  1              large  egg
  2        tablespoons  milk
  1           teaspoon  vanilla extract

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, milk and vanilla. Combine the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.

Place four cookies bottom side up on a microwave-safe plate; top each with a marshmallow. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 10-15 seconds or until marshmallows begin to puff (do not overcook). Top each with another cookie. Repeat. Yield: about 2 dozen.
