There is a cookie party at Stuff and Nonsense and you know how I am about cookies!
Love them...every little morsel!
Last night we were thinking of a new recipe, but then I thought maybe some of you didn't
get a chance to read about the smores we made last December...
So here we go.....traveling back in time....
The kids and I were so excited to try this recipe! Sarah and Tony helped me make them tonight! Of course we have a funny story that go along with the cookies!
We love Smores and look for any good reason (excuse) to make them!
When I found a recipe for Homemade Graham crackers....
well of course....that means SMORES!!
1 Cup butter, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp. Honey
2 tsp Vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp all spice
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Beat softened butter with brown sugar, honey and vanilla until fluffy.
Combine flours, cinnamon, all spice, baking soda and salt in a large bowl and mix well. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and beat at medium speed until well blended.
With dampen fingers, press dough onto parchment lined baking sheet. Cover dough with parchment paper and use the bottom of a dry measuring up to smooth out the top of the dough. Remove parchment paper and discard. Use a fork to score dough into squares, press fork completely through dough with each indentation.
Sprinkle topping on dough prior to baking. (cinnamon and sugar)
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. While dough is still warm, score again. Cool completely on wire rack before breaking into individual crackers.
Score with a fork to create squares. I was able to make 20 squares. I think we could've made the dough thinner and it would have made more squares.
The house smelled so good while they were baking!! When we took it out of the oven it was this beautiful brown color! We are so excited to assemble our smores!
Here we go! The squares were large enough for 2 marshmallows!
We first tested it in the microwave and the marshmallow's Blew up to the size of a large apples! I would've taken a picture, but we were laughing too hard and then they went down to normal size.
Of course we still ate it :)
Plan B: We assembled the smores and placed it under the broiler.
It toasted the marshmallow perfect!!
I would stick with plan B, unless you're looking for some entertainment!
We wrapped a few for individual gifts.
Experiment with different kinds of Hershey chocolate when making your smore's.
A reese's peanut butter cup smoreis unbelievable!
Last year I linked this recipe to Kim's Dare to Do it Yourself Party!!
And in 2010 we are joining Stuff and Nonsense for another fun cookie party!
Stop by and see all the great cookie ideas!
