S’mores Cookies

One of my favorite memories growing up was baking Christmas Cookies and Fudge with my Grandma in her kitchen. Make the dough, refrigerate the dough, roll out the dough, cut the dough in shapes, bake at 350, ice them, lots of sprinkles & EAT! They were (are) a lot of work but everyone loves them and expects them on the table for Christmas Eve brunch so we suck it up for them 😉

Since I knew I’d be making my Grandma’s infamous sugar cookies next week – I decided to whip up some different flavors this week for Adam’s work.

I have made these particular s’mores cookies before (March 2011!) and they’re always a hit. They might even be my favorite?
