S'mores Cookies

These cookies are absolutely amazing!   Plus, they only use one bowl which is a significant bonus. 

I've been wanting to bake for some time now and had some leftover marshmallows from Thanksgiving.  These required minimal attention, so I was able to listen to some audio lectures while mixing up the dough.

The only complaint I have is with my oven!  It just randomly picks and chooses what temperature it wants to be.  Despite having an oven thermometer, it doesn't matter so much if it decides to increase while the food is in the oven.  I put these in preheated at 375 only to find that it increased to 400 and burnt the outside a bit and undercooked the inside!  Grr... but they set up nicely on the wire rack.

The graham crumbles are awesome in the cookie.  It just tastes like you are eating a s'more.  So good, especially right out of the oven.  However, I also had one the next day and it was still pretty dang incredible.
