When a few of my friends showed up at my house I was caught off guard and without a dessert. So after a short discussion about what to make, my friend, and fellow baker, kim decided we should attempt to make smores cookies. We started off with my favorite chocolate chip cookie base crumbled in some graham crackers and ripped up some marshmallows and out came delicious gooey cookies! Im not the biggest smores fan but these were delicious and addictive!
the recipe makes a lot of cookies! so i decided the batter and only added the graham crackers and marshmallow to a small portion of it.
INCREDIBLE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
adapted from here
3 2/3 cups (8 ½ oz.) all purpose flour
1 ¼ tsp. baking soda
1 ½ tsp. baking powder
1 ½ tsp. coarse salt, such as kosher
2 ½ sticks (1 ¼ cups; 10 oz.) unsalted butter, softened
1 ¼ cups (10 oz.) light brown sugar
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. (8 oz.) granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
bittersweet chocolate chips or chunks to taste
Sea salt or kosher salt for garnishing
Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Whisk well; then set aside.
Using a mixer fitted with paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars until very light and fluffy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in the vanilla. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed. Reduce the mixer speed to low; then add dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. (Unless you have a plastic guard that sits around the rim of the bowl, this will make a big mess at first, with flour flying everywhere. I found that carefully holding a dish towel around the top of the bowl helped a lot.) Add the chocolate chips, and mix briefly to incorporate.* divide batter if you don’t want all smores cookies. we added crumbled graham crackers and ripped marshmallows into pieces to taste.
When you’re ready to bake, preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat.
Sprinkle lightly with sea salt, and bake until golden brown but still soft, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer the baking sheet to a wire rack for 10 minutes
