Cookie Parties!

Sunday, December 18, 2011
This year, I was invited to TWO cookie exchange parties. The idea is this: you bring 2 dozen cookies with the recipe, then other people do the same. At the party, you go around and select the same number of cookies of all different varieties to bring home. In this way, instead of making 8 different types of cookies, you make just one, but go home with 8 different cookies. I had been wanting to make S'mores Cookies for a while (since I was still in SF) so thought this would be the perfect opportunity to make some! I think they turned out super tasty!
Quest'anno, sono stata invitata a due feste dove si scambiano i biscotti. L'idea e' questo: te porti 20 biscotti con la ricetta, e tutti lo fanno. Alla festa, si scambiano i biscotti. In questo modo, in vece di fare 8 tipi diversi di biscotti, te fai un tipo, pero' vai a casa con 8 tipi diversi di biscotti. E' un po' di tempo che volevo fare questi S'mores cookies allora ho pensato di farli per queste feste. Io penso che siano venuti molto buoni!

S’mores Cookies

Yield: 30 cookies

½ cup rolled oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
¾ cup light-brown sugar
1 large egg
8 ounces chocolate cut into squares **I used the Hershey’s snack size chocolate bars and put one piece per cookie**
15 large marshmallows, halved

Preheat oven to 350˚
In a food processor, pulse oats until finely ground
Add flours, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt; pulse to combine
In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy with mixer
Beat in egg, scraping down sides of the bowl
With mixer on low, beat in flour mixture until just combined
Drop dough by tablespoons onto two baking sheets
Top each with a chocolate square
Bake until just lightly golden 11-13 minutes
Remove sheets from oven and heat broiler
Top each cookie with a marshmallow (sticky side down)
One sheet at a time, broil until marshmallows are lightly browned (this varied with each sheet, but about 2 minutes
      Keep a CLOSE eye on the marshmallows and remove when lightly browned (they burn really quickly)
Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool

It's possible I quadrupled the recipe

So then I had to use the Kitchen Aid.....poor little hand mixer
started smoking, whoops! 

About to go into the oven

So that the cookies all turned out the same, I used a cookie scoop.
I would dip it in flour to make the dough easier to press out.

Ready for the parties!

Hannah made Santa cookies. Adorable!
