S'mores Cookie Sandwiches

 S'mores are great anytime! They are great in the winter when its cold, and great in the summer by a bonfire! S'mores are also a camping must! This recipe combines a homemade marshmallow frosting with melted chocolate sandwiched between two homemade graham cracker cookies. Talk about delicious! 

For the cookie:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup graham flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup light-brown sugar, packed
1/4 granulated sugar
3 tablespoons honey
1 egg, plus 1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Filling:
4 egg whites
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
9 oz. (1 1/2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons shortening 


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the flour, graham flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon together, then set aside.

3. In a separate bowl with an electric mixer, whip the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar on medium-high speed, until pale and fluffy. Blend in the honey. Add 1 egg and blend until combined. Add the egg yolk and vanilla and blend. 

4. While mixing on a low speed, slowly mix in the bowl of dry ingredients, mixing until thoroughly combined.

5. Scoop 1 tablespoons of dough and form into balls. Place the cookie dough balls onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 9-10 minutes, them remove from oven and allow to cool completely. 

6. In a saucepan, bring a few inches of water to a simmer. In a metal or glass mixing bowl, add the egg whites, sugar, and cream of tartar and whisk over the simmering water. Whisk constantly for about 3-4 minutes until sugar has dissolved, and the egg whites are warm to the touch. Take off of the heat, and with an electric mixer, beat the frosting until stiff peaks form, about 5-7 minutes. Add vanilla in at the last 10 seconds of mixing. 

7. the cookies have cooled, melt the chocolate and shortening in the microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring in between until smooth.

8. On half of the cookies pipe the marshmallow frosting, you can torch it with a kitchen torch if you have one. On the other half of the cookies, spread a spoonful of chocolate and let cool slightly. Once the chocolate has cooled some, sandwich one chocolate topped cookie, and one frosting topped cookie together. 

Enjoy! :)
