Melissa's Cuisine: S'mores Thumbprints with Marshmallow Frosting

S'mores Thumbprints with Marshmallow Frosting

In December, my mom's friend hosted a Cookie Exchange.  She invited my Mom, Grandma, Mother-in-law, Sister-in-law, and myself to join in the fun.  We were each asked to bring 3 dozen cookies to share.  I spent a long time choosing out the "perfect" recipe for the evening, but I definitely picked a hit!  We enjoyed an evening of delicious appetizers, fun games, good company, and yummy cookies!  Everyone had a great night, and I have a feeling this could become a yearly tradition.

My MIL has repeatedly asked "when are you going to post your S'mores cookies on your blog?", so here they are!  They are fun to make and taste delicious.  I hope you'll enjoy these cookies as much as we did.
S'mores Thumbprints

Makes about 2 dozen cookies

You will need:
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg yolk
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 batch marshmallow frosting (recipe below)
1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs

1.  In a medium bowl, stir together flour, cocoa powder, and salt.  Set aside.

2.  In the bowl of your stand mixer, beat together butter and sugars until fluffy (about 3-4 minutes).

3.  Add in the egg yolk and vanilla and beat for another 1-2 minutes, until combined.

4.  Stir in the flour mixture and mix until the dough comes together.  Stir in chocolate chips.

5.  Roll cookie dough into 1 inch balls and place 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet.  Press your thumb into the center of each dough ball to create an indentation.

6.  Bake cookies at 375 for 8-10 minutes.  Remove and cool cookies completely.

7.  Scoop frosting into an icing bag fitted with a large tip and fill in the indentation of the cookie with frosting.  (If you don't have an icing bag, you can snip an end off a Ziploc bag  to create one, or just use a spoon to scoop the frosting into the cookies.)

8.  Top cookies with a sprinkling of graham cracker crumbs.  Store in an airtight container.

I loved this marshmallow frosting.  It took a few attempts to get it "just right".  The first recipe I tried tasted like I was eating straight butter so I had to compensate by increasing the amount of marshmallow fluff.  I think I've perfected the recipe now though, and I know it will be appearing in more recipes in the future.  I added in a few tablespoons of Toasted Marshmallow syrup to increase the marshmallow flavor, but if you don't have any available, the frosting tastes great without it.  I purchased mine at our favorite coffee shop.
