S'mores Cookies

I have recently become slightly obsessed with anything s'mores related. I usually substitute Nutella in any recipe that I can, but these turned out perfect with good ole' homemade chocolate chip cookies. These S'mores Cookies are a perfect quick and easy dessert. I found these surfing the web on Pinterest so I had to give them a try. They have a graham cracker base with a chocolate chip cookie and marshmallow topping it. The crunch of the graham cracker with the gooey cookie is the perfect combination.
S'mores Cookies
Recipe adapted from The Girl Who Ate Everything

1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
½ cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 ½ cups flour
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup mini marshmallows
1-2 packages graham crackers, broken into squares

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line baking pans with aluminum foil or parchment paper. I used a 9x13 pan but you can use any pan you have on hand.

Lay out graham crackers side by side on the pans as close as possible (they should be touching). I used 16 graham cracker squares. You may have to add or remove graham crackers according to how much dough you have. If you want your cookies thicker you will use more dough and less graham crackers.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt to combine. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter with white and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.

Add the flour mixture to the butter mixer and combine on low speed.

Fold in the chocolate chips and marshmallows. Chill dough in refrigerator for 1 hour.

Place 1 tablespoon of dough on graham crackers about 1 – 1 ½ inches apart. I averaged about 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough per graham cracker square as seen in the picture below. Press down slightly with fingertips.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until dough is beginning to turn golden brown at the edges. Remove to a wire rack to cool. For clean cutting make sure cookies are completely cool and cut with a sharp knife.
