My Favorite Childhood Recipe: S’mores Cookies

A cookie with chocolate chips and marshmallows

I started cooking when I was only 12. I had to take a home economics class in 7th grade, and we cooked there. That’s how I got into it. The first things I would bake were cookies, muffins, and cakes.

However, during the first few years of cooking and baking, I threw away most of what I made. But the S’mores cookies were one of the few exceptions.

I remember reading the recipe and how it called for graham cracker crumbs. However, I misunderstood the ingredient and almost put in Indian gram flour. Luckily, my mom told me that it would have made the cookies taste bitter. So, I removed it.

After following the recipe accurately, I tasted a cookie… and guess what… It tasted delicious

I would love to make these again, even though I don’t remember the website that had the recipe. I don’t know if it even exists anymore. Even if it does, my browsing history could not take me back to 2007, when I made the S’mores cookies, which happened a year after taking home ec in school

I also noticed that 7-11 had sold them. But they were not the same kind that I had made. Rather than having a graham cracker based cookie, the franchise’s version was a chocolate cookie. 

I have eaten it before, and I enjoyed it. From what I can remember, it was a chocolate cookie with chocolate chips, graham cracker pieces, and melted marshmallows.

Although I liked 7-11’s version of their S’mores cookies, if I ever go back to making the ones I made at age 13, I will stick with the kind with a graham cracker cookie, filled with chocolate chips and marshmallows. I also hope that it will be soft and chewy, which is how I prefer my cookies.

One thing I have learned while baking cookies over the years is that adding baking powder causes them to arise like cakes. That has always displeased me. So, I would press on them with a spatula and flatten them.

From now on, if a cookie recipe calls for baking powder, I will not use it. You may have a different opinion, and of course, I respect that.
