Gooey S'mores Cookies

The lazy days of summer have faded into the cooler days of fall. While we've been enjoying all things pumpkin and apple, every now and then you want a piece of those warm summer nights.  You can't go wrong with the classic S'more flavors in these delicious cookies. My family inhaled them. I will definitely make a double batch next time!


Gooey S'mores Cookies

1  stick butter, softened
1/2  cup sugar
1/4  cup packed brown sugar
1  egg
1  teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4  cup graham cracker crumbs
1  1/3 cups flour
1  teaspoon baking powder
1/2  teaspoon kosher salt
1  cup chocolate chips
1  cup mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray lightly with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, cream together butter and both sugars for 2-3 minutes or until light and fluffy.  Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix well.

In a gallon sized ziploc bag crush graham crackers with a rolling pin until you have 3/4 a cup. In a medium bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking powder and kosher salt. Add to the butter mixture a little at a time until fully incorporated.

Gently stir in the chocolate chips and marshmallows. 

Scoop a heaping tablespoon (I use my small scoop) of dough onto the prepared cooked sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Butter Cake

The flavor combo of chocolate and peanut butter is a favorite in our house. In my opinion, this flavor combination is hard to improve upon. However, if you add some cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar it becomes positively delicious. This decadent cake is a variation of the Ooey Gooey Butter Cake that has been around forever. Trust me it is just as addictive as the original, maybe even more so! 


Peanut Butter Chocolate Butter Cake

For the Cake:
1  box (18.25 ounce) Devil's food cake mix
1  egg
1/2  cup butter, melted

For the filling:
1  package (8 ounce) cream cheese, softened
1  cup creamy peanut butter
3  eggs
1  teaspoon vanilla
1/2  cup butter melted
1  package (16 ounces) powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9" x 13" baking dish. Combine the cake ingredients in the bowl of a mixer and mix well. Press into the bottom of your prepared pan.

In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese and peanut butter until well combined. Add the eggs, vanilla and melted butter. Stir in the powdered sugar and mix until well combined. 

Pour the filling mixture over the cake layer in your pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Be careful not to over bake. The center of the cake will be a little gooey when you take it out of the oven.

Enjoy!

Kim
