S’more Cookie Tarts

Somedays I think I know it all. Most days I realize I have no clue, but I have those days where I think “nah, I’ll do it my way and it’ll be fine.” This was one of those days. (When will I ever learn???)

When I saw the post on S’more Cookie Tarts over on Crazy For Crust I knew I was going to make those cookies. We’re a huge fan of Peepsters and cookies with Peepsters? Yeah, that’s like heaven for this family.  So where did I screw up?

 

First off, I have no idea why they are called tarts.  I think of a pie like thing filled with fruit when I hear the word tart.  And me and pie?  No thank you.
Anywho… they truly were amazing cookies!  But why can’t I just follow a recipe?  Why do I think I know better?  We’ll table that question for another day.
Here’s how they are supposed to be made…
S’more Cookie Tarts
* 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1 egg
* 1 tsp. vanilla
* 1 cup flour
* 1 cup crushed graham crackers (6 full sized crackers)
* 1 tsp. baking powder
* Peepsters (about 24)
Crush your graham crackers.  I put the crackers in a ziplock bag and crushed them with a rolling pin.  This worked great!

 

In a stand mixer. beat butter and eggs until fluffy.  Add egg and vanilla and mix well.  Add flour, graham cracker crumbs and baking powder.
Here’s where I cut corners.  But it’s not my fault because I tasted the dough and it was so good I didn’t want to let it chill.  And I really dislike rolling out dough.  Next time, though, I’ll do these 2 steps!
Roll out the dough between 2 sheets of waxed paper until it’s 1/4″ thick.
Chill dough (flattened out) for about 30 minutes.
(I just scooped up balls of dough and pushed a Peepster into it.)

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut chilled dough into circles.  You want to measure the circles so they aren’t a ton larger than the Peepster.

let’s take a look at Peepsters again… just to give you an idea how delicious these are going to be.

 

Wrap the circle of dough around the Peeper leaving the top exposed.
Bake for approx. 9 – 11 minutes on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Don’t overcook them!
Let the cookie sit for 2 minutes and then remove to a cooling rack.

 

Mine spread a ton more than Dorothy’s.  I think I used too much dough to wrap the Peepers in.  Or maybe it was because I didn’t chill it.  Because I didn’t follow directions!!!  Regardless, they don’t look as cool but they were amazingly delicious!
Enjoy!

  1. I really want to try this recipe it sounds like total yummo

  2. They look really yummy. But I have never seen Peepsters. Are they chocolate covered marshmallows? Would it work with Rolos? That sounds good, and I can find Rolos. Hmm.. I gotta look at the candy section!
