Peanut Butter S'more Cookies


Having baking on hand is a two edged sword, right? It's great for the kid's lunches & snacks, but it's also around to temp me. I really like to try new baking recipes, so finding new recipes to add to my favourites that the whole family enjoys is a great thing (although an exercise in self control for me).




This week, I did some digging in my Pinterest boards to get some baking inspiration. When I was looking through my C is for Cookie board, I found this recipe. I baked up a batch & we loved them! It has since been moved to my We Tried Them & We Liked Them board. :)




Peanut Butter S’more Cookies  adapted from The Three Little Piglets
Makes about 3 dozen
½ c. shortening
¾ c. creamy peanut butter
⅓ c. granulated sugar
⅓ c. light brown sugar
1 egg
2 tbs. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. all purpose flour
½ c. graham cracker crumbs
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 c. mini marshmallows
4 – 1.55 oz. Hershey bars, broken into chunks (I didn't have these on hand so I used 1/2 cup chocolate chips mixed into the dough.)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, beat shortening, peanut butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla; beat well. Mix in flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda, and salt until well combined, but do not over mix. This is where I mixed in the chocolate chips.
Shape dough into 1” balls. Place on ungreased cookies sheets. Flatten slightly with the palm of your hand or the bottom of a glass.
Bake 6 minutes or until slightly set. Remove from the oven and add three mini marshmallows and three small chunks of Hershey Bar to each cookie. Return to the oven 3-4 more minutes until lightly browned.
Cool 1-2 minutes and then remove to wire racks and cool completely before storing in an airtight container.




Don't they look yummy? Trust me, they are! A little taste of heaven. The toasted marshmallows are the best!
