During the summer months when I was younger, fishing and hanging with friends setting on a tailgate is all I wanted to do when I wasn’t playing softball or showing cattle. There’s almost nothing better than just hanging with great people under the moonlight trying to catch a big ol’ cat. Along with those fishing adventures usually comes a fire pit and what’s the best thing to do over a fire?! Yup, you’ve guessed it… make some s’mores!! I love my marshmallows super crispy on the outside and melting goodness in the middle slapped between two pieces of graham cracker and a slice of chocolate… hmm… I need a bonfire in my life soon. How do you take your marshmallows when you’re making s’mores??
Well, sometimes you just can’t go outside and light a fire whenever you are craving s’mores. That’s why these Soft Butterscotch S’more Cookies are pretty much the next best thing. Maybe besides these S’more Bars that is or even a little dose of some spiked s’mores with these Bailey’s Lucky S’more Bars. Either way… these will satisfy your cravings — for a little while 🙂
Honestly, when I first made these… I didn’t even want to bake them. I just wanted to eat the cookie dough as is! Seriously! Fantastic! We’re talking it’s my new favorite cookie dough. Forget that go-to sugar cookie or chocolate chip cookie dough that you always make. This dough. It’s simply…ahhhhhhh-mazing in my book! Next time, I think I might just skip the baking part and leave the dough in the fridge to snack on. I’m not even joking guys, the graham crackers in this dough just takes the normal cookie dough to another level that I’m so happy I found. If you don’t believe me, just try it for yourself and let me know what you think!
If the dough is able to make it on to the oven, you’re in good shape. Once the cookies are half baked you pull them out and place a few mini marshmallows on top and now you’ve got yourself a serious ooey gooey s’more cookie. The butterscotch chips give the s’mores something a little different… not a bad different either! Don’t just take my word for it.
Hide them from loved ones.
Ohh. PS. If your marshmallows run over the sides of your cookies when baking… scrape the marshmallows off once they come out of the oven… and eat them.. don’t throw them away! Delicious!
- 3/4 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 1 cup (1 full sleeve) graham cracker crumbs
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/2 cup butterscotch baking chips
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- Preheat oven to 375*F
- In a mixing bowl, fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugars until smooth.
- Add the egg and vanilla, mixing thoroughly.
- In a sifter combine the flour and baking soda.
- Add sifted flour mixture and graham cracker crumbs, mixing well.
- Stir in the butterscotch chips.
- With a cookie scoops (or spoon) place dough onto cookie sheets.
- Bake at 375*F for 6-8 minutes and remove from oven.
- Quickly place a few marshmallows on the tops of each cookie and return to oven to finish baking 2-3 minutes.
- Remove from oven and let cool on wire racks.
- **No 375* is not too hot. If you bake at 350* your cookies will spread too much**
- **Yields 2.5-3 dozen cookies depending on size**
- **Cookies may stick together if marshmallows become sticky melted and not crusty melted--I like mine sticky on the cookie :)**
