Campfire Cookies

IMG_2964

Campfire cookies are a bit like combing chocolate chip cookies and s’mores. The result is not quite as good as either of those things, but still rather tasty. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the addition of marshmallows, that was the part I was sure I wasn’t going to be crazy about. The texture was a bit dry and sandy, but didn’t hurt the overall flavor of this cookie.

The dough was a bit dry too, but scooped out alright after some time in the fridge. I ended up using cinnamon sugar graham crackers, as that is what I had in my pantry, and I think it made them really sweet. I wouldn’t recommended using them.

I brought these to a friend’s Halloween party a few weeks ago. I love the name Campfire Cookies, but people tended to look at me blankly when I called them that, so I just went with “It’s a S’more cookie.”

Overall it’s a nice spin on a chocolate chip cookie, but chocolate chip cookies are perfection so I don’t know if I’d make these again. I might start adding marshmallows to other cookie recipes though.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

I thought I would whip up these cheesecake bars before pumpkin season dwindles away and leaves us in the land of peppermint and eggnog. I love that they use a sweet pastry dough for the crust instead of graham crackers or pie dough, it makes a really delicious sort of cookie bottom. The bars are fairly easy to make, though it does take a lot of time since bits and pieces need to chill along the way. They slice really easily so they’d be a great party dessert.  Since I don’t like cheesecake, I usually look to my husband to let me know if they turned out well, and he went nuts over these bars. I’m not sure if he’ll let me take them to work tomorrow.
