Summer means s'mores to me. I love them over a campfire, made indoor style out of Golden Grahams, and now I have a new one to add to the list. These yummy cookie bars (smarshmelwo cookies as Kate calls them) are a fun alternative to the traditional campfire treat.

S’more Cookies

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup
1 teaspoon
vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups
all-purpose flour
3/4 cup
graham cracker crumbs
1 teaspoon
baking powder
1/4 teaspoon
7 3/4 ounces milk chocolate (5 Hershey bars!) (or a bag of choc. chips)
3 cups
miniature marshmallows

1. Heat oven to 350°F.
2. Grease 8-inch square baking pan.
3. Beat butter and sugar until well blended in large bowl.
4. Add egg and vanilla; beat well.
5. Stir together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt; add to butter mixture, beating until blended.
6. Press half of dough into prepared pan.
7. Bake 15 minutes.
8. Arrange chocolate over baked layer, breaking as needed to fit.
9. Sprinkle with marshmallows; scatter bits of remaining cookie dough over marshmallows, forming top layer.
10. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or just until lightly browned.
11. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
12. Cut into 16 bars.

I think these would also be delicious with peanut butter or butterscotch chips added.
