S'more Thumbprint Cookies

I know it is only the beginning of November, but today marked the start of the Christmas Cookie baking!! I absolutely love this time of year!! My good friend Sarah and I started the annual tradition of Christmas Cookie baking when we were roommates our junior year of college. Wow, I can't believe that was already five years ago. And I think every year the cookies get better and better. We very rarely make the same recipe two years in a row so the big question is always "what kinds should we make this year?" And then we each go on the hunt for a couple fun and unique recipes.

This year Sarah bought Pillsbury's Best Cookies Cookbook and there are multiple recipes that I am dying to try in the near future! I think I might even have to make a trip to Border's Books to buy this cookbook for myself! The picture of the s'more thumbprint on the cover caught my eye when she showed me the book and apparently it sucked her in too because it was her "pick" for our baking today! And they are definitely unlike anything we had ever made in the past!

I think I could have eaten about a dozen of these cookies in one sitting! Not sure if I have enough self-control to stay out of the freezer and not eat all of them before Christmas even gets here. Might have been a mistake to make these so far in advance!

S'more Thumbprint Cookies
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup finely crushed or ground graham cracker crumbs
1/8 tsp salt
About 2 cup miniature marshmallows
About 120 rectangles milk chocolate candy

Preheat over to 325 degrees. In large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. On low speed, add flour, cracker crumbs, and salt. Beat for about one minute or until still dough forms.

Shape dough into one inch balls. Place about two inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. With thumb, make indentation in center of each.

Bake 10-12 minutes. Lightly press 3 marshmallows in center of each cookie. Bake two to three minutes longer.

Top marshmallows on each cookie with two rectangles of chocolate. Let stand two to three minutes. With tip of knife, gently spread chocolate over marshmallows. Let stand until chocolate is set.

Another Sweet Escape!
