"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner

S'more Cookie, Please

I got this recipe for s'mores cookies from a friend (our husbands served together aboard the USS Normandy) a while ago. Every time I make them, everyone gushes about how scrumpdiddlyumptious they are. Or, if they're just seeing pictures on FB, they talk about how they could eat 4 dozen of them.

Okay, that's just Andrew.

Anyway, I thought it was prime time that I shared the recipe for all your enjoyment.

Don't forget to make some extra for yourself. These will disappear before your very eyes.
Kristine's S'Mores Cookies
Makes around 20 cookies

3/4 c butter, softened
1/2 c white sugar
1/2 c packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 c all-purpose flour
1 c graham cracker crumbs
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c mini-marshmallows
2 Hershey bars, broken into pieces

*Preheat oven to 350*F.

*Beat together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Blend in egg and vanilla.

*Combine flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl.

*Mix into butter mixture.

*Stir in chocolate chips.

* Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets, about 2" apart.

*Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and quickly press marshmallows and chocolate into the cookies. I find that about 3 mini-marshmallows and 2-3 pieces of chocolate per cookie is a good balance.

*Return to oven and bake 3 more minutes.

*Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a while before transferring them to a cooling rack, or they will get "smooshy."
