Serves: 24
Ingredients
  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (softened)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 8 crackers)
  • 1 large egg (room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 large marshmallows (cut in half crosswise)
  • 24 Hershey's Chocolate Kisses
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium size bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
  3. Using a stand mixer with paddle attachment on medium high speed mix together butter, sugar, and ½ cup graham cracker crumbs until mixture is light and fluffy. (If you don't have a stand mixer a regular mixer should work fine)
  4. Reduce speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture mixing until just moist (If not using a stand mixture use a spoon).
  5. Place the rest of the graham cracker crumbs in a shallow dish, measure the dough out 1 tablespoon at a time and form a ball like you are making meat balls, roll in the cracker crumbs too coat, placing 12 on each cookie sheet.

  16. Repeat the process with the other sheet of cookies.
  17. Note: on the second tray I used a fork and flattened the balls a little bit to make the tops a little flatter to hold the marshmallow – this seemed to work real well.

Oatmeal White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Christmas time means cookies and they don’t get much better than this Oatmeal White Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Craisins Recipe. If you’re into creating cookies for the Charismas season add this cookie recipe to your collection; they are really good. I thought I would just eat one to see how they tasted but unfortunately I didn’t stop there-after 3 I figured I had better get them into the freezer or there would be none left for Christmas. This is a simple recipe that doesn’t require a lot of ingredients and the white chocolate and Craisins blend very well together. The cookie dough is very thick and hard to work with a spoon, so I used my hands and formed them like I was making meatballs, and this method worked out very well. You can always press them down a little bit with a fork if you want them a little flatter. Enjoy-adapted from Craisins packaging.

It is quick and simple to put together, and the cookies come out perfect every time.
