step-by-step directions We've Made Cooking As Easy As 1-2-3! printer friendly version 
  • 1
    2 cups All-Purpose Flour
    1/2 cup Sugar
    1 teaspoon Cinnamon
    pinch Salt 
    2 sticks Unsalted Butter
    1 tablespoon Molasses
    1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
    For the Shortbread Cookie: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, molasses and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Continue to beat while adding the flour mixture in three additions, blending just until combined before adding more flour. Fold dough into a disk and wrap in plastic. Chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes or until ready to roll out.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Use a 2 1/2 inch round cookie cutter to cut out circles. Transfer the circles to a parchment lined baking sheet. Re roll excess dough and cut out more circles. Bake cookies for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly golden on the edges.  Remove and allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container until ready to serve.
  • 3
    1 1/2 cups Marshmallow Cream (warmed)
    1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter (warmed)
    Salt to taste
    For the Peanut Butter Cream: In a medium bowl, beat together the marshmallow cream and peanut butter until combined. Re-warm mixture as needed to assist in stirring together. Set aside until ready to serve.
  • 4
    4 Chocolate Bars (broken into 16 pieces)
    To Assemble: To assemble the S'mores, place a piece of chocolate on a shortbread cookie and top with a spoonful of peanut butter cream. Sandwich with another cookie and enjoy!

    Helpful Tips:
    1. For the ideal dough thickness, put clean hair ties on the ends of a rolling pin to elevate the pin, creating a space between the roller and the counter surface. 
    2. You can also use store bought ginger snaps as opposed to making the cookies from scratch.
