Jumping The Gun.






































It's time for Bermuda shorts and flip flops, campfires and s'mores, picnics and late night sunsets. Sunglasses that are both ridiculously huge and fabulous. Freshly mowed grass and the adorable buzz of bumblebees. Tan lines and the feel of warm sand between your toes.

It might seem like I'm jumping the gun a bit here. It wasn't a week ago we had bits of stubborn snow clinging to the ground. Canadian Summers are short so we have to make the most of it. We had our first campfire over Easter weekend while there was still a chill in the air and snow on the ground.

In the spirit of the beautiful weather I hope we can hang onto for as long as possible I made S'mores Cookies. For those of us with long or short Summers, now we can enjoy a little piece of it all year long.











S'mores Cookies
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

Source: Adapted from my family recipe.

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup demerara sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup graham crackers, chopped
1/2 cup mini marshmallows









Printer-Friendly Version

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and position a rack in the center. Line your baking sheets with parchment paper and set them aside.

In a large bowl with an electric mixer cream together the butter and sugars. Add the vanilla and eggs then blend it in.

In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt then mix it into the wet ingredients. Fold in the chocolate chips and chopped graham crackers.

Drop heaping tbsps of dough onto the prepared baking sheets then press them down lightly with your fingers. Bake them for 8 minutes then take them out and set the oven to broil. Press 2 – 3 mini marshmallows into each cookie then toast the marshmallows for a brief 1 minute under the broiler. Transfer them to a cooling rack and enjoy!

  4. WOW! S’mores cookies! Now you’ve gone and done it! :) I have to have one of these… I am bookmarking this for sure…

  5. LOL, I like Sara’s idea. I went camping with my daughter and her Brownie troop and it whetted my appetite for S’mores. Maybe I’ll make these cookies for our end of the year meeting :)

  6. I love the green grass pic paired with the cookies. The colours look really good together.

    I had a ladybug damn near fly into me today (is it weird that I dodged out of its way?), so I guess spring really IS here! It’s hard to believe, isn’t it?

  11. I got a bit of a sunburn on my nose last weekend, from spending five hours in the garden weeding my flowerbeds and preparing my vegetable boxes. If that doesn’t say “summer is almost here”, I don’t know what does. :)
    PS – It’s never too early in the season for smores. Never.

  17. These look awesome! I can usually only eat one smore, but I bet I’d be able to eat more than one of these!

  18. Jumping the gun? Lol, Ive been itching for campfires for weeks now! (Actually, Im still clinging to a hoodie that I wore at our last one because it still smells like campfire). These cookies certainly would light a fire if I wasn’t already itching for sunshine. They look adorable.

  19. These cookies look delicious! Your pictures are beautiful, love the roasted marshmallows in the pics!

  20. What a great idea! I indulged in my first s’mores of the year last weekend, but these look even better.
