I was recently invited on a multi day rafting trip in Oregon. In my team oriented challenge course facilitating we talk about boating; there are three roles to play on a boat and in a team: Captain, Crew, and Cargo. Before my trip I was airing my concerns with my Grandpa about how I might just be Cargo on this trip, just along for the ride and not of much help at all. He told me to do something to not be Cargo, to use my skills, like baking. That seemed like a prefect solution, a way to say thank you and contribute to the team! So I came up with this recipe I found on Pinterest, because lets me honest I can't do just normal chocolat chip cookies anymore!
Yields 4 dozen
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips (or one giant Hershey’s bar chopped)
1 cup mini marshmallows
4 dozen or so graham cracker squares (about one box)
Preheat oven to 350 F
Cream together butter and sugar until incorporated.
Add in eggs and vanilla and beat in thoroughly.
Then add the flour, salt, baking soda, chocolate chips and mini marshmallows. Stir it all together till incorporated.
Lay the graham crackers on a baking sheet, evenly spaced. Place a small ball of dough, about half an inch in dimeter on each cracker and lightly flatten each ball.
Bake at 350°F for no more than 11 minutes (after 11 minutes, the graham cracker will burn). Some of the marshmallow may toast off the cracker, but simply remove the cracker from your cookie sheet and quickly transfer to a wire rack.
