Peanut Butter S'more Cookies


I don't really like peanut butter cookies. Not sure why. I mean I love peanut butter and I love cookies. I bought this small pamphlet cook book called "Monster Cookies" which has recipes for those huge sized cookies. In it I tried the recipe for these. They were really yummy. Every time I take them somewhere I always get tons of requests for the recipe. So here it is...

Peanut Butter S'mores

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup creamy or chunky peanut butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 (1.55oz) milk chocolate candy bars
16 large marshmallows

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in small bowl; set aside. Beat butter and sugars in large bowl of electric mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in peanut butter, egg and vanilla until well blended. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until blended.
3. Roll dough into 1 inch balls; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten dough with tines of fork, forming criss-cross pattern. Bake about 14 minutes of until set and edges are light golden brown. Cook cookies 2 minutes on cookie sheets; transfer to wire cooling racks. Cool completely.
4. To assemble sandwiches, break each candy bar into four sections. Place 1 section of chocolate on flat side of 1 cookies. Place on microwaveable plate; top with 1 marshmallow. Microwave on HIGH 10 to 12 seconds or until marshmallow is puffy. Immediately top with another cookie, flat side down. Press slightly. Repeat with remaining cookies, chocolate and marshmallows. Cool completely. Makes about 16 sandwich cookies.

I'll have to make these when we have company. They looks super yummy to me but, since Matt doesn't like peanut butter, I would end up eating them all myself. Now I feel like i need to get cooking, taking pics and posting. Thanks Lorri.
