Everyone around here is in full Christmas spirit. We have been using our Chocolate Advent calendar to countdown, we have a chain countdown, presents are about half wrapped, Friendsmas 2016 is in the books and this past weekend I went to my sister in laws annual Christmas Cookie exchange.
Typically around this time I make all sorts of treats, so making something for a cookie exchange is no biggie. But this year I really wanted to make something different from the normal toffee, fudge, peanut butter balls that I make each year.
I headed to Pinterest and searched for Christmas Cookies. Of course there are a million different kinds that sounded amazing. But I picked two and stuck with them. The ones I am sharing today are S’mores Kiss Cookies.
Sounds easy enough, right? It certainly was. These cookies were not only super easy to make but amazingly soft (even a couple of days later)!
The kids loved helping with these because not only did they get the job of unwrapping chocolate kisses, they were able to sneak a couple!
I love s’mores. But roasting marshmallows over a fire isn’t something I get to do often. So I have no problem settling for something as delicious as these S’mores Kiss cookies!
S’mores Kiss Cookies – Recipes from Six Sister’s Stuff
- 1 c graham cracker crumbs
- 1 1/4 c all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 c unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1/2 c light brown sugar
- 1/3 c granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 20 large marshmallows, cut in half
- About 40 chocolate kisses (I ended up using 36)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Using a large bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugars together until creamy and smooth.
- Add in the egg and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
- Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
- Put tablespoons of dough onto a baking sheet, 1″ apart. (I use a small cookie scoop which is basically just a small ice cream scoop)
- Bake for 6 minutes and edges are just getting golden brown.
- Remove from oven and press half of a marshmallow, sticky side down, into each cookie. Let cool completely.
- Let all cookies cool completely then preheat broiler.
- Put all of the cookies back on baking sheets and broil for 1 minute. Don’t let them burn!
- Remove from the broiler and place a chocolate kiss on top of each cookie.
