S’mores cookie-wiches



As summer slips away I wanted to do a take on the simple but tasty summer dessert- S’mores.  No camp fire needed for this tasty cookie-wich :)

The cookie-wich starts out with a simple
Graham cracker cookie (recipe below)

Graham Cracker Cookies

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs (I did mine in a food processor until I had very fine crumbs)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Beat together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, blend in the vanilla and egg
  3. Combine the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda and salt and mix together with a whisk
  4. Add flour mixture to the butter and sugar mixture and mix well
  5. Drop dough by heaping Tbs onto a cookie sheet (either grease it or cover with parchment paper) I then went back and rolled these into balls to have a more uniform cookie shape
  6. Bake for 8-10 Minutes- then cool on sheet for about 3 minutes then move to a wire rack to finish cooling

I dipped the cookies in the ganache and let the
chocolate firm up a little

While waiting for the chocolate ganache to set a little
I made a marshmallow fluff  frosting (recipe below)

Marshmallow Fluff Frosting

Ingredients

  • 2 (large) egg whites
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 Tbs water
  • 1 Tbs light corn syrup
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. In a large heatproof metal bowl combine the egg whites, sugar, water, corn syrup, cream of tartar and salt
  2. Set the bowl over but not touching a pot of simmering water and heat mixture stirring constantly until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is very warm to the touch, about 3-4 minutes
  3. Remove the bowl from the pot. Using a handheld electric mixer, beat on medium high speed for about 2 minutes
  4. In a small bowl, microwave 1 cup mini marshmallows 30 second to a minute, until puffed, and starting to melt
  5. Add marshmallows to sugar mixture and beat on low- add in the vanilla and continue to beat on low until the marshmallows are melted and the frosting is completely smooth (about 3-4 minutes)
  6. Use frosting imediately

The next step was to pipe on the marshmallow fluff frosting
while it was still warm and gooey

Then I sandwiched the pieces together to create
my S’mores cookie-wich

The last step was to enjoy my sweet creation and boy was it was yummy.
