Can we talk s’mores for a minute?  Everybody knows that the graham crackers are the weakest link.  They’re a little bit dry, a little bit crumbly, and they have a tendency to break at the most inopportune  times.  They don’t bring much to the party, that’s for sure.  Which is why I’ve invented a better s’more.  A s’more with a homemade peanut butter cookie base.  The peanut butter cookie is sturdy, but chewy, and, hello?  It brings peanut butter to the table!

These  cookies are easy to throw together, and the dough is a delight, so soft and fluffy.  You don’t have to chill it or anything, just scoop little balls and make the classic peanut butter cookie cross hatch marks with the back of a fork.

You might even like them so much you’ll  want to eat all by themselves.  But be sure to try these s’mores first.

Peanut Butter Cookie S’mores

Yield: makes approximately 2 dozen s'mores

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • dry ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Set the oven to 350F
  2. Cream the butter and sugars together until fluffy. Beat in the egg, and the vanilla, and then mix in the peanut butter.
  3. Whisk the dry ingredients together and fold into the wet. Don't over mix.
  4. Use a 1 1/4 inch scoop to form balls of dough, and place on an un greased cookie sheet. Use the back of a fork to flatten the dough slightly and make cross hatch marks. If your fork sticks to the dough, dip it lightly in water first.
  5. Bake the cookies for 8-9 minutes, and then let cool on the pan slightly before transferring to a rack.
  6. Make your s'mores as usual.

P.S. These cookies freeze beautifully, so keep the extras in a freezer bag and pull them out when the s’more urge strikes!

    I don’t know why this isn’t standard s’mores fare!
    And I love the way it is written: “can we talk…” and “the weakest link”… perfect.

    What temperature are these baked at?

  6. Oh boy look at these!
    Now that’s a combo.
    Brilliant!

  7. Hah! I totally, 100% agree with you on the graham crackers…they just don’t match up to the awesomeness of the marshmallow-chocolate. PB cookies? Genius! I bet these taste amazing :)

    these look so yummy!

  9. Joanne says:

    I’m definitely having one of those DOH moments with these. Because OBVIOUSLY PB cookies belong as s’mores sandwiches!

  10. Kathy says:

    Ooooo do these look heavenly! I know a few kids who would love it if I made them! I think they would elevate me to “Best Grandma” status!!

    I have a weak place for PB cookies. Marshmallows however,I have to be a bit goaded into eating. PB cookies are good goaders. GREG

    Oh.my.goodness! Brilliant!

  13. I have to admit, those cookies do look extremely easy to make, and although I’ve never tried a s’more (English s’more barbarian, you know) each time I see them on a blog I fall in love with them a little bit more. This sounds like a pretty heavenly treat!

  14. Oh my peanut buttery heavens!!! Best recipe I’ve seen in ages. This is a keeper for sure!! (My kids are going to be SO happy!!!

    WoW! That’s using your noodle!
    So obvious, but count me as oblivious.
